Ivoclar is one of the world’s leading dental companies. The company’s success is based on a comprehensive portfolio of products and systems, strong research and development capabilities and a clear commitment to training and further education.
Ivoclar support dentists, dental technicians and dental hygienists both professionally and personally in fulfilling their passion and purpose: to ensure that people have the best possible oral health and quality of life, today and in the future. We are inspired by the knowledge that together we grow better.
We love what we do and we aim to inspire others.
What we offer: Integrated solutions comprised of smart systems, advanced training and education, value added services and passionate partnerships.
Focus on Research and Development - We know that intensive research, extensive testing and a healthy dose of curiosity are required to develop truly successful innovations. That is why we listen to dentists and dental technicians and learn to understand their daily working needs.
We find out about their individual workflow requirements and do our utmost to reconcile high efficiency with superior esthetics. We collaborate intensively with major universities, renowned research institutes and the best dental experts from around the world in an effort to take dentistry to the next level.
Disruptive innovation is in our DNA. We are consistently pushing the boundaries in our industry.
We live and breathe innovation and customer focus. We have been doing so for almost 100 years.
Founded in Zurich, Switzerland, in 1923, our company has been domiciled in the Principality of Liechtenstein since the 1930s. We opened our first international subsidiary in Germany in 1954.
The innovative 1960s
We impressed customers with our invention of predosed, mechanically mixable tooth filling and cementation materials in capsules, and we launched a new generation of artificial teeth, which featured what is known as the “Pearl Effect”.
We started to expand our business activities in Europe and founded subsidiaries in France (1960), Italy (1962) and Austria (1966).
We cultivate a culture of learning: As early as in the 1950s, our dental lab specialists started offering our customers practical demonstrations on how to use our products.
The 1970s – a time of expansion
We continued to expand internationally by opening offices in Sweden and Spain (both in 1972), Australia (1975), the US and New Zealand (both in 1978) and Canada (1979).
We built new facilities in Bludenz (Austria), where we started manufacturing dental laboratory equipment.
The 1980s – growth in North America
In 1986 we acquired Williams Gold Refining Co., one of the most successful manufacturers of precious metal products for the dental industry.
The significance of the North American market continued to increase for our company. Our subsidiary in the US grew rapidly.
The 1990s – innovation and disruption
In 1991, we introduced the IPS Empress porcelain system: The world’s first pressed ceramic revolutionized the dental industry.
The Tetric technology, which was launched on the market in the following year, ushered in a new era in tooth-coloured restorative materials
We took a bold step and ventured into the Asian market, where we opened a production facility in the Philippines (1993) and a subsidiary in China (1998).
The 2000s – the resounding success of IPS e.max
The IPS e.max lithium disilicate glass-ceramic was introduced in 2005. Within a very short time, this material established itself as the benchmark for all dental glass-ceramics.
Today, digital dentistry is one of our most significant growth drivers: Digital workflows involve intraoral scanners for digital impression taking as well as digital manufacturing equipment, such as milling and 3D printing machines.
Ultimately, however, it is the skill and expertise of our customers that will make the difference.
We are also developing new solutions in the field of Augmented Reality and IoT, which will raise the work of dentists and dental and dental technicians to a whole new level.
Respect - Interact with other people as equals.
Smile - Smiling doesn't cost anything, but it does work miracles.
Focus - Concentrate on the essence so that the goals can be reached.
Act - Start now, don't wait.
Grow - Dedication of the individual is necessary for the whole to grow
We engage with local communities across the globe.
We are grateful for our success and believe in giving back. In addition to promoting the further development of our employees, we are passionate about supporting a variety of social and charitable projects, in some instances over a period of many years.
We share one mission: Making People Smile.
