Q: What are some of the biggest moments in Medidenta History?
A: While most of you are reading this won’t remember the Giromatic released in 1963, the first contra angle for the mechanical preparation of root canals, or in 1984 the release of the Sonic MM1500, some are familiar with the last breakthrough with our Air Free 90° high-speed handpiece, the world’s first rear venting 90° High-Speed Handpiece.
For over 80 years, Medidenta has been serving the dental profession with innovation, direct pricing, and unparalleled customer service, which remains true today but with much greater reach.
Q: How has Medidenta grown in today’s business climate?
A: We’ve been busy the last pre, during, and post-pandemic. Medidenta has made some strategic acquisitions like the additions of Prophy Magic Hygiene, Whiter Image Dental, Ultradent’s Genius Proflex Endo System, and in-house contract manufacturing emphasizing its expansions in today’s business climate. We have been able to transform from a catalog/tradeshow company to a successful e-commerce force in the dental industry.
Medidenta executives recognized the importance of online visibility and made efforts to expand Medidenta’s online presence through our own e-commerce sites, social media, and partnerships with external selling platforms. We have prioritized education and hands-on training for dental professionals through their Medidenta Education program.
Overall, we have taken a proactive approach to growth, positioning ourselves well for continued success in the future.
We’ve realized if you’re the smartest person in a room, you need to find another room, and that is a big part of our growth. For more information about Medidenta, go to www.medidenta.com and see our ad.
