Strong products, groundbreaking innovations and a passion for endodontics: VDW – one of the world's leading brands in the field of root canal treatment – is turning 150. With its product portfolio, the Munich-based endo specialist stands for a system approach and an unmistakable combination of strong heritage and an unbroken spirit of innovation.

VDW is a pioneer in the production of root canal instruments in Europe and has decisively shaped the fundamentals of root canal treatment. Since its foundation, the company has remained true to this specialisation and continues to raise the bar in the endo market with its sound expertise and product innovations.

True to the company motto Endo Easy Efficient, the range comprises products and services that are linked to one another across all treatment steps so users can carry out treatments as efficiently, safely and easily as possible. "In everything we do, our primary goal is to understand and support the dentist in the best possible way to improve long-term treatment success. In doing so, we always keep an eye on the entire endo workflow", says Valerie Baschet, Group Vice President Global Endodontics. This approach also includes a comprehensive training programme for dentists, who can benefit from a first-grade international network of experts and exchange as part of almost 800 courses taking place around the world each year. This means the endo specialist is optimally positioned for the future and ready to continue playing a decisive role in shaping the endo market as both a traditional company and leader in innovation.
