J&S Davis – Small enough to care, bold enough to lead.

J&S Davis Ltd is an exclusive UK distributor which sources the highest quality products in their category from all over the world. These products are then made available to dental professionals via their usual dental retailers. 

The unique products sourced cover restoration, endodontics, periodontics, hygiene, oral surgery and more, from a range of leading manufacturers including Kuraray, LM Instruments, Micro-Mega, Cavex, Meisinger, BPR Swiss, Solo and most recently, Curaden SpA.

Ordering a J&S Davis product is simple. You can either contact your usual retailer and place your order with them or you can contact J&S Davis directly who will take your order and pass it on to your preferred retailer who will invoice you as usual. You can also order through your local J&S Davis Product Specialist who will process the order in the same way.

J&S Davis has been bringing quality solutions to practice for over 100 years and will continue to do so.


J&S Davis was founded in 1908 by brothers Joel (Joe) and Solomon (Solly) Davis possibly because their brother Phillip was a dental surgeon. Their first export agencies included Lee S. Smith & Son Manufacturing Co. and Arnold Biber.

The company stopped trading at the start of World War 1. Solly had a distinguished military career as an army captain. He fought through the French, Belgian and Gallipoli campaigns and was awarded the Military Cross.

After the war, the Davis brothers worked in the United Kingdom Dental Ltd which they formed with W Linford Smith. The firm manufactured teeth. Within a year the company was purchased by the DeTrey group (now Dentsply). Joe and Solly then reestablished J&S Davis representing Universal Dental Company, Lee S. Smith & Son Manufacturing Company, J F Jelenko & Company, E J McCormick Rubber Company, King’s Specialist Company and Dentinol and Pyrozide Company.

In 1922 Mark Schottlander left the De Trey group to join with Joe and Solly in forming Davis Schottlander and Davis (DSD). The business grew steadily in the inter-war years.

Solly’s son John joined the business family business briefly in 1940 before enlisting in the RAF. He flew Spitfires until he was knocked over by a lorry in the desert. He was in hospital for several months with a fractured femur during which time most of his squadron were killed. Joe and Solly remained with DSD until their deaths in 1946 and 1951 respectively. After Solly’s death, John left and restarted J&S Davis.

After the war, John restarted J&S Davis in 1952. One of the early ranges distributed was from Dentatus of Sweden.

During the next forty years John was responsible for bringing to the UK market many products and ideas now thought of as every day. In the seventies his youngest brother Victor was Finance Director.

In 1955 Keur & Sneljtes (Now Cavex) was added to the J&S Davis product range.

1964 saw the launch of the first disposable needle in the UK dental market, Solo Needle. (In the first year sales exceeded several million, again with disbelief from the Trade.) Solo Saliva Ejectors soon followed). Followed by the launch of the popular Indian Head Mirror (Union Broach).

Solo Impression Trays were conceived and born in 1969; the numbering system eventually became the universal Impression Tray numbering system for plastic trays in UK and much of Europe.

In 1991 when the business was acquired by Planmeca, John Davis retired and his son Daniel assumed responsibility for J&S Davis. (John passed away in October 2014 aged 92.)
Distribution of LM Instruments (Finland): The original ergonomic silicone handled instrument range which transformed instrument choice and is still the instrument by which others are measured.

John Davis in 1992 retired and Daniel Davis assumed responsibility for the J&S Davis division.

Distribution of Meisinger (Germany) and Micro-Mega (France) began.

J&S Davis is back in the family!

Daniel Davis became the owner of J&S Davis Limited on the 1st May 2012 having purchased the business from Plandent Ltd (Planmeca).

J&S Davis moved premises into their own building in 2013, where they remain today.
