Our history and vision
When Dr. Reinhard Straumann made his first steps in watch making in the early 20th century in Switzerland, he could not know that this was the beginning of a journey to revolutionize the medical device industry and to become the world’s #1 dental implant company.
He was a true pioneer with a genuine hunger for research and a persistent passion for excellence and innovation always wanting to make things better for mankind. This resulted in advancements far beyond watch making. It resulted in Swiss engineering backed up by science and evidence, marrying design with precision, craftmanship and quality.
Today, three generations of Straumann pioneers shaped our DNA and laid the foundation for modern dental implantology. In implantology, we’ve been around for more than six decades. Always pushing limits, entering new fields, creating opportunities to make lives better. From the first dental implant in 1974 to the latest digital solutions we became the #1 manufacturer of dental implants worldwide. Always staying true to our core value to deliver uncompromising quality with the patient in mind.
Our innovation is backed by scientific evidence and the largest scientific network of dental professionals worldwide.
