United for global excellence in dentistry. Every vision has its story, and ours began more than 60 years ago. Since then, our innovations and achievements have become landmarks in dentistry worldwide. Straumann began as a family-owned institute, grew into a publicly-owned holding, and today comprises a number of leading and talented companies around the world. Our vision has always been to create more than just smiles, but lasting confidence for dentists, labs, patients, employees, partners, dental networks and the global community.
