Awards and recognition

Straumann's contributions to dentistry, patients, the community and other stakeholders has been recognized in many ways

Our products are inspired by customers, designed by specialists, tested by scientists – and have been awarded some of the most prestigious technology and design awards.

Past awards

Straumann is the only dental company to have twice received the prestigious Medical Technology Device of the Year Award bestowed by Frost & Sullivan for best practice in innovation: for the SLActive® implant surface (2005) and the Roxolid® implant material (2009). Also, the Straumann thermoplastic drill template won the prestigious 2007 Medical Design Excellence Award (MDEA).

reddot design award

A part of our digital workflow, the Straumann® CARES® Scan CS2 scanner is one of our most recent product innovations. Its outstanding design was created by the Schlagheck Design industrial design team and has now been acknowledged by the jury of the internationally renowned reddot design award. By means of its white, high-gloss housing, the product creates positive associations to tooth shape and enamel.

Health Media Award 2013 for the Straumann Patient Education App

Our Patient Education App for iPad has been awarded the German Health Media Award 2013 in the “Patient Communication” category.

The Award aims “to promote communication in the constantly growing and ever more important healthcare market, introduce the best originators of communication, showcase the strongest work to a broad public, and underscore the importance of creativity in this market.” (Health Media Award UG)
