Kuznicki Law PLLC notifies investors that a class action has commenced in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio on behalf of shareholders of Dentsply Sirona, Inc. who purchased shares between June 9, 2021 and May 9, 2022.

On this news, shares of Dentsply fell by $2.87 per share, or 7%, from $39.25 per share to $36.38 per share.
