  • Ultradent Products, Inc. Proudly Introduces Mosaic™ Universal Composite

    February 21, 2017 South Jordan, Utah

    Ultradent Products Inc. proudly introduces Mosaic universal composite, which balances beauty and performance for lasting, lifelike restorations. Mosaic composite can be used for all restorative purposes: basic or complex. Its well-balanced nanohybrid formula produces restorations of the highest quality. Combining the strength properties required for posterior use with the esthetic characteristics desired for anterior use, Mosaic universal composite ensures superior results both visually and functionally.


    Mosaic universal composite’s smooth, pliable consistency allows for total control during manipulation. Once the material is shaped, it won’t flow or slump out of place. Available in 20 intuitive dental and enamel shades, it provides predictable shade matching using single, double, or multiple-layer techniques, as it was designed to emulate the same levels of translucency and opacity seen in natural dentition. Dentin and enamel shades also mimic the same fluorescence that occurs in natural dentin and enamel. The proprietary dispersion of nanofillers in Mosaic composite allows for a high polish and long-term gloss retention, allowing the restorations to maintain a long-term luster. Low volume shrinkage and low shrinkage stress reduce the potential for strain on the restoration during polymerization, while high compressive and flexural strength ensure that the restoration can withstand repetitive chewing and biting forces.


    Mosaic universal composite comes in unique, four-gram syringes, featuring an innovative design with a smooth, contoured handle and barrel to allow for easy cleaning while still being easy to grip and identify. It is also available in convenient .2-gram unit-dose singles.

  • Ultradent Receives Medal of Honor from French University

    ​Last week on January 9, 2017, the University of Montpellier in Dardilly, France presented the Medal of Honor, the university’s highest recognition, to Dr. Dan Fischer, founder and CEO of Ultradent Products, Inc., who received the award on behalf of the company. A reception and celebration followed where Dr. Dan Fischer, Ultradent’s management team in France and SEMEA, and Dirk Jeffs, Ultradent’s president, celebrated with many of the university’s faculty members, guest lecturers, and students. The dean of the University of Montpellier, Philippe Gibert, called the award a “mark of gratitude for the involvement of Ultradent in the training of future dentists at Montpellier, and, overall, for their important contribution to the teaching of dentistry.”

    Since 2009, Ultradent has been involved in the University of Montpellier’s dental program, helping provide practical training to students in tooth whitening, adhesions, veneers, and even management and leadership through product support, training, and lecturing. Additionally, Ultradent supported the creation of a post-graduate diploma by Dr. Bruno Pelessier in esthetic and restorative dentistry, which has become the most widely recognized and reputable professional diploma for working dentists in France. Ultradent has also helped the university develop a master class on posterior restorations that is not only available at the University of Montpellier’s main campus in France, but is also at outposts on the islands of Réunion, Guadeloupe, and Martinique.

    Upon receiving the Medal of Honor, Dr. Dan Fischer said, “Receiving this award was very humbling and a sweet gesture by our colleagues at the University of Montpellier, including Dr. Bruno Pelessier. I was very honored to accept it on behalf of the entire company and everyone’s hard work and effort in partnership with the University of Montpellier.”

  • Ultradent Introduces New Enamelast® Fluoride Varnish Flavors

    July 7, 2016 South Jordan, Utah

    Ultradent Products, Inc. is excited to introduce three new delicious flavor offerings to its Enamelast fluoride varnish line: Cool Mint, Bubble Gum, and Orange Cream. The fluoride varnish is also available in the original Walterberry flavor.


    Ultradent created Enamelast fluoride varnish in response to overwhelming demand for an effective varnish that doesn’t leave an unsightly, uncomfortable, or gritty residue. Enamelast varnish finally allows patients to leave the dental office with teeth that feel clean and smooth. In addition to its silky texture, Enamelast varnish appears nearly invisible against the teeth, eliminating the embarrassment that many patients feel after other varnish treatments.


    For a fluoride varnish to provide the best results, it must adhere to the teeth for the entire recommended time. Enamelast varnish features a patented adhesion-promoting agent that enhances retention, making it easier for patients to receive its full benefits. Enamelast varnish’s natural feel also makes it more comfortable to wear for a longer amount of time, allowing for maximum fluoride uptake.


    Enamelast fluoride varnish comes in two convenient delivery options: unit-dose blister packs or Ultradent’s signature syringe and tip application. The Enamelast varnish unit-dose blister packs provide an ideal delivery option for the clinician who prefers the convenience of a one-time use application, or for dental clinics in hospital settings that require the use of unit-dose treatments in which all materials are packaged together. Each blister pack includes a prefilled well and applicator brush, allowing the clinician to dip the brush in the well and paint the varnish on the teeth. Conversely, the syringe delivery facilitates the ability to express Enamelast varnish through Ultradent’s SoftEZ® tip directly onto the teeth for fast application. The clinician can also choose to express the varnish onto the back of their glove before painting onto the teeth. As opposed to the unit-dose blister packs, each syringe of Enamelast varnish provides enough varnish for three to four patients.
