COLTENE is a global leader in the development, manufacture and sale of consumable and small equipment for dental treatment applications. The foundation for COLTENE AG was laid in 1963 in the fields of product and trade with products for dentistry and construction chemistry. Numerous mergers and reorganization resulted in a focus on the dental market in the 70s, in particular in the field of impression materials and dental fillings. The takeover of the US company Whaledent, a specialist for parapulpal pins and posts, led to the formation of the Coltene/Whaledent company group in 1990 with intensified international alignment. Further company acquisitions supplemented the product range with a bias towards orthodontics, rotating instruments and a large number of dental consumables.
Today, COLTENE operates production facilities in Switzerland, Germany, Hungary, Brazil and the USA, as well as worldwide sales network with its own representatives and distribution partners. Dentists and dental technicians worldwide rely on COLTENE products, both for conventional, as well as implant-based treatment and dental reconstruction. Visit www.coltene.com.
