As a dental company, DMG America has delivered some of the most widely used and clinically successful dental products to North America. Whether it’s for accurate impressions, reliable temporary, preventative or permanent care, DMG America is dedicated to streamlining the dental professionals’ daily routines.
The history of DMG America dates back to the year 1963, when Ernst Mühlbauer founded a company in Hamburg, Germany for the purpose of manufacturing professional dental materials. He named the company DMG, or Dental Material-Gesellschaft. The premium-quality products developed in the company’s laboratories were immediately successful and the company began to steadily grow.
Fast forward to the year 1982. In Englewood, New Jersey, the dental company Zenith Dental was born and soon thereafter a partnership was formed with DMG. Originally a division of Foremost Dental, Zenith Dental went on to deliver groundbreaking technologies to the North American professional dental industry, with market-leading products such as Luxatemp and LuxaCore.
After decades of successful cooperation, in 2008, Zenith Dental rebranded itself as DMG America.
Whether it’s for accurate impressions, reliable temporary, preventative or permanent care, DMG America is dedicated to streamlining the dental professionals’ daily routines with uniquely innovative quality brand products. Our ongoing commitment to research, development, and testing perpetuates the company’s 30-year legacy of delivering superior quality materials to North America. The result is the steady acknowledgement by worldwide independent product evaluation institutes who continue to recognize DMG as a world leader in materials technology.
DMG America has delivered some of the most widely used and clinically successful dental products to North America. We’ve introduced several groundbreaking technologies to the professional dental industry that have led to the development of market-leading products like Luxatemp, the first provisional restorative material in a cartridge; LuxaCore Dual, the premium core build-up material; and Kolorz, one of the fastest-growing dental hygiene product lines in the U.S. market. In 2009, DMG America created a new category with the launch of Icon, the first and only product to arrest incipient caries through resin infiltration without drilling, anesthesia, or pain.
With these, and many more "first-of-its-kind" innovations, DMG America proudly stands behind its doctrine of “Dental Milestones Guaranteed”.
