Good day and welcome to the DENTSPLY International Third Quarter 2011 Earnings Call. Today’s conference is being recorded. At this time, I would like to turn the conference over to Mr. Derek Leckow, Vice President of Investor Relations. Please go ahead, sir.
Thank you very much Ellisa, and many thanks to each of you for joining us today to discuss DENTSPLY International’s third quarter 2011 results. Joining us on the call from our location in Europe is Bret Wise, Chairman and CEO; and I’m here in New York with Chris Clark, our President and COO; and Bill Jellison, our Senior Vice President and CFO. Each of us will have some prepared remarks and then, we’ll be glad to answer any questions that you may have. I’d hope you all had a chance to review our press release and supplemental materials, which we issued earlier this morning. A copy of the press release and these materials are available for downloading on our website www.dentsply.com in the Investor Relations area.
