As a key part of our efforts to help dentists in their efforts to provide patients with better results in less time, Glidewell has proudly held a position on the cutting edge of the dental technology industry. When Glidewell was first established as a dental laboratory in 1970, the production of dental restorations was an analog process that depended upon waxing, casting and building restorations up by hand. In the decades that followed, Glidewell pioneered key developments in CAD/CAM technology and materials science that have helped make restorative dentistry the digitally driven art form it is today.
Imagination, ambitious R&D, and the ability to see what’s possible have long established Glidewell as a company that is constantly pushing the boundaries to develop meaningful innovations and streamline the restorative process. All of these efforts contribute to our mission to help clinicians deliver more predictable outcomes through the use of ever-better methods, materials and technology.
Today, as digital dental technology continues to expand the what’s possible in the field of dentistry, we endeavor to continue pushing forward, while never forgetting the handcraft, artistry and attention to detail that have made Glidewell the largest provider of custom restorative services in the world.
