We are an independent private company focused on the research, development, manufacturing, and marketing of high-tech dental materials based on advanced composites. Adopting cutting-edge technology from the aerospace industry and adding biocompatibility and specific features required in dentistry, Dentapreg® is a true constructive composite. This is a new class of composite material suitable for building structures such as dental splints, temporary bridges, posts, dentures, and large restorations.
The story of Dentapreg started in - of all places - kindergarten. This was way back in Communist Czechoslovakia when two friends were playing together in a sandbox. One of them was Josef Jancar and the other Zbynek Sedivy. Many years passed. After the Velvet Revolution came the fall of communism and those two friends finally had the freedom to live their dreams. Mr. Sedivy, as an engineer, was involved in the transition of the Czech aeronautic industry towards a Western oriented business. Mr. Jancar, as a physical chemist, became a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Connecticut where he focused on material science in medicine.
After many years, the two friends were reacquainted. They didn't talk about the sandbox anymore but rather about their areas of expertise. And in 1995, they founded ADM (Advanced Dental Materials) to explore ways of adapting strong and dependable aeronautic materials and pioneering their use in dentistry. It took years of research to perfect and in 2004 they were finally satisfied with the result. They believed they had a superior product that would bring dentists new opportunities to treat their patients more effectively. To properly serve the US market, they founded Dentapreg America Inc. in 2010.
Today, Dentapreg® continues to grow with customers worldwide. Europe, Israel, South Africa, Japan, and Australia - dentists, lab technicians and their patients all across the globe now enjoy the advantages of Dentapreg® products.
Dentapreg team is comprised of highly motivated professionals with solid expertise in material science and biomechanics. Our philosophy is to focus on what we really understand, which is materials, and provide it in its best form to dentists and laboratory technicians in the United States.
