Thanks, Douglas. Good morning, and thanks for taking time to participate in our third quarter earnings conference call. Joining me today is Steve Armstrong, our Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. As a logistical moat, I am at the Chicago Midwinter Dental Show today, so Steve and I are not in the same location. You may hear us confer briefly as we prepare to address questions at the conclusion of our remarks.
