Passion for endodontics: VDW celebrates its 150th anniversary

2019 VDW celebrates its 150th birthday and looks back on one and a half centuries of expertise in developing innovative products for root canal treatment. Since its founding in 1869, the company has grown into one of the leading brands in this field. With passion for endodontics, VDW is dedicated to offering comprehensive endodontic care and improving tooth preservation globally.

Founded in Munich in 1869, VDW was a pioneer in laying the founda-tions of root canal therapy. An important milestone was marked in 1972 when the three German companies – ANTÆOS, BEUTELROCK and Zipperer – merged to Vereinigte Dentalwerke, abbreviated as VDW. A quick expansion of its global market position and pioneering product in-novations paved the way for further growth – the company became one of the leading endodontic brands worldwide.
Today, the VDW headquarters and high-tech production facilities are still based in Munich and are delivering over 200 products to more than 80 countries worldwide. VDW provides an Endo-System throughout all treatment steps with products and services linked to one another, enabling dentists to benefit even more from VDW’s profound endodontic expertise.
“For 150 years now, we have been setting standards for modern endodontics with our dedication to quality, precision and innovation”, says Sonja Corinna Ludwig, Director Global Sales & General Manager. “We stand for Endo Easy Efficient and I am convinced that this commitment will lead the company into a successful future.”
With the motto “Join our ride”, VDW invites all partners, employees and customers to celebrate its 150th birthday on starting January 1st.
