  • Ultradent’s Team Unites to Support NCMEC and the Wireless AMBER Alert Initiative

    July 28, 2009 South Jordan, UT

    Ultradent announced a company-wide initiative to support Wireless AMBER Alerts, a voluntary partnership between the United States Department of Justice, the National Center for Missing and Exploited (NCMEC) Children and participating companies from the wireless industry in an effort to establish an emergency notification system for missing children. 

    Statistics shared by NCMEC indicate that the first three hours after a child’s abduction are crucial in implementing a successful recovery effort. With hundreds of “eyes on the road” every day, Ultradent’s management team encouraged employees to participate in the Wireless AMBER Alert network to assist law enforcement in their recovery efforts. “In supporting this initiative,” said Dr. Fischer, Ultradent’s President/CEO, “we hope that other organizations will follow suit in asking their members to participate in this very important effort.” 

    Wireless subscribers (those which are capable of receiving text messages), may opt in to receive Wireless AMBER Alerts by registering at or by visiting their wireless carrier's website. Once an AMBER alert is issued by law enforcement, the NCMEC is notified and provided with information to include in the alert. NCMEC formats the AMBER Alert message and sends it electronically to Syniverse which sends the FREE message to select wireless carriers. The carriers, in turn, send the alert to subscribers.

  • Ultradent’s International Offices Join to Celebrate 30 Years of Business

    July 13, 2009 South Jordan, UT

    Ultradent Products, Inc. hosted its 30 year anniversary in South Jordan, Utah last week. Representatives from Ultradent’s subsidiary and distributor offices joined for a county fair-style celebration complete with a canned food drive for the Utah Food Bank, carnival games, craft fair, and 5k run. Proceeds from the events, over $2000, were donated to Volunteers of America (on behalf of the late Lorin Fischer). 

    When Ultradent opened its doors 30 years ago, it managed and operated by Fischer family members – in the basement of founder Dr. Dan Fischer’s home. Today, this Utah-based dental products manufacturer employs over 800 individuals and provides products to dentists in 100 countries around the world. 

    Considered a leader in the dental industry, Ultradent continues to garner attention as an innovator. From Astringedent to its most widely recognized brand, Opalescence, Ultradent has introduced products and techniques that were not only advanced for their time but that also set industry standards. 

    The last 30 years have brought about significant changes such as the addition of subsidiaries in Japan, Brazil, Germany and Italy, a recent 65,000 square foot manufacturing building expansion and the continued growth of a trustworthy and progressive brand.
