ATLANTA (January 7, 2019)

Carestream Dental today welcomed its more than 400 Atlanta-based employees and their guests to its new global headquarters at 3625 Cumberland Blvd., with an official ribbon-cutting ceremony.

“Congratulations to Carestream Dental for their decision to expand their global corporate headquarters in Cobb County,” said Dana Johnson, Executive Director of Select Cobb. “Cobb County is a top location for business growth and development due to our business-friendly environment, thriving corporate culture, and robust local, regional, and statewide partnerships to meet today’s workforce demands.”

The ribbon cutting featured distinguished guests from the health and dental communities, including Dikembe Mutombo, representing the Dikembe Mutombo Foundation, which is dedicated to improving the health, education and quality of life for the people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Sheri Anderson, representing the Dentistry for the Developmentally Disabled Foundation, which provides specialized oral healthcare to patients with developmental disabilities in Metro Atlanta.

Representatives from the county and metro chambers of commerce, including Sharon Mason, president and CEO, Cobb Chamber, and Rob Demont, director of bioscience/healthcare, Metro Atlanta Chamber, were also in attendance to speak to Carestream Dental’s role in expanding Atlanta’s position as a global healthcare hub.

“This move has reminded us that Carestream Dental has an important role to play across several communities,” Lisa Ashby, CEO, Carestream Dental, said. “First, our employees make up a tight-knit community that is accountable to each other and our customers. Second, our role in the local community, providing jobs and impacting the economy. Third, and most importantly, Mr. Mutombo and Ms. Anderson reminded us that we’re a part of a greater healthcare community that changes lives around the world.”

CSD HQ, as it’s known, is Carestream Dental’s new global headquarters. The company transitioned to the 54,000 sq. ft. office space on Dec. 17, 2018 but made the move official with the Jan. 7, 2019 ceremonial ribbon-cutting. CEO Lisa Ashby and Mr. Mutombo had the honor of cutting the ribbon on a specially made staircase that connects the two floors of the office.
