We create opportunities in Emerging Markets
Dr Shavir Nooryezdan is a practicing clinician with his own dental clinic in Mumbai. He is also a recognized authority in the field of implant and restorative dentistry. Seeing the great need and opportunity for affordable and effective tooth replacement solutions in India, he established his own implant production company in 2005. At the same time he began training dentists in implantology. In the meantime, his company, Equinox, has become the third largest provider of dental implants in India. To take it to the next step, he wooed Straumann as an investor and global partner. In 2016, Straumann acquired the company and engaged Dr Shavir to head and drive the Straumann business in India. His expertise and networks, together with the infrastructure established by Equinox, offered Straumann the opportunity to enter the Indian market with its premium implant brand.
