Improving Oral Health Globally
In 1976, Dr. Dan Fischer saw the need for a product that achieved more rapid, profound hemostasis, so he invented the groundbreaking Astringedent™ hemostatic solution. The success of Astringedent hemostatic led to more advanced, innovative dental solutions and Ultradent Products, Inc., was created.
Now, over 40 years later, we are a global dental supply and manufacturing company with multiple industry-leading products. Ultradent’s products are used worldwide by dentists, group practices, government agencies, and universities. Our passion to improve oral health has made Ultradent the incredible company it is today.

Dr. Dan Fischer
Founder & CEO Emeritus of Ultradent Products, Inc.
Now an international leader in the dental industry, Ultradent began humbly—in Dr. Fischer’s basement, with his children as its first employees.
As a young dentist, Dr. Fischer realized that rapid, profound hemostasis was imperative for quality operative dentistry. Because there were no products on the market that predictably controlled bleeding and sulcular fluid, he developed one. Considered one of Ultradent’s flagship products, Astringedent™, and later Viscostat™, resulted from Dr. Fischer’s insight, determination, and willingness to work after hours—using his own blood to test his efforts—to produce exactly what he felt the market needed.
Over three decades later, Dr. Fischer is still revolutionizing the dental industry. He has numerous patents to his name, and regularly lectures and writes articles about state-of-the-art dentistry. He also works part-time in his daughter’s dental practice, which enables him to connect with patients and practice minimally invasive dentistry—a philosophy around which Ultradent develops products and procedures.
Dr. Fischer strives continuously to “Improve Oral Health Globally,” and hopes to one day discover a cure for caries. In pursuing these goals, Dr. Fischer is a generous philanthropist, regularly donating time, money, and products to countless personal missions and organizations such as Sealants For Smiles, which places sealants on the teeth of children with limited preventative dental care. Dr. Fischer also champions The Diversity Foundation, which provides educational opportunities to vulnerable and underprivileged children, and has helped transform the lives of many young people who have been victims of FLDS polygamy.
When he isn’t working, he enjoys tending to his garden and spending time with his wife, children, and 30 grandchildren. Driven by a strong moral code, Dr. Fischer lives his life according to the same values that guide Ultradent.
