YORK, Pa., July 28, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DENTSPLY International Inc. (Nasdaq:XRAY) today announced record sales and earnings for the three months ended June 30, 2011. Net sales in the second quarter of 2011 increased 7.8% to $609.4 million compared to $565.1 million reported for the second quarter of 2010. Net sales, excluding precious metal content, were $564.0 million, an 8.7% increase compared to $518.8 million the second quarter of 2010. The net sales growth, excluding precious metal content, was primarily the result of favorable foreign exchange rates, however we also had positive impacts from both recent acquisitions and internal sales growth, despite headwinds from reduced orthodontic supply and lower Japanese sales resulting from the natural disaster in that country.
