The City of South Jordan will be presenting Ultradent founder and CEO Dr. Dan E. Fischer with its Corporate Citizen Award during a luncheon to be held at Ultradent in South Jordan (505 West 10200 South) on Wednesday, January 19, 2011 with a program beginning at 12:00 noon. The award recognizes Dr. Fischer’s and Ultradent’s numerous contributions to the City of South Jordan and to improving global oral health. The award will be presented by South Jordan Mayor W. Kent Money.
“Dr. Fischer has worked tirelessly at creating and innovating products designed to improve oral health throughout the globe. His personal philanthropy and the philanthropy of Ultradent have improved lives throughout the world. Dr. Fischer is a community partner who values and supports the same ideals that our community embraces, and whose actions and life are worthy of this recognition” Mayor Money said.
Ultradent was founded in Utah over 30 years ago by Dr. Fischer who saw a need for more effective dental products than were offered at the time. Ultradent has now grown to become one of the largest dental products companies in the world with over 800 different products, most notably its teeth whitening products.
Ultradent has entered into a successful partnership with the American Dental Association in which the company provides lectures to junior- and senior-level dental students at nearly 60 schools throughout the United States. Ultradent also donates products to humanitarian efforts nationally and globally. On a local front, Ultradent supports the Sealants for Smiles program and the Salt Lake Dental Service by making contributions toward products and the continuing education of the clinic staff.
The City of South Jordan, one of the fastest growing cities in Utah, is located 20 miles southwest of Salt Lake City, and home to 54,000 residents. In 2010, South Jordan was named the #18 “Best Place to Live In America” by Money Magazine.
