The Story Behind Walterberry

Decades ago, our founder and CEO emeritus Dr. Dan Fischer was dissatisfied with the limited flavor options available in the dental market. Most products, if flavored at all, were an awful version of grape that children especially detested. He experimented with many different flavors, taste-testing them with his family—mint, bubble gum, cinnamon, licorice, even piña colada! Bubble gum was the clear winner among his children, but no single flavor was adored by both adults and children alike. So, he asked an Ultradent chemist named Walter to help.

Walter had to create a flavoring that not only tasted good but also didn’t react with any active ingredients or break down over time. For months, Walter mixed flavors in his lab and the aroma would waft around the building. When he thought he had found a winning formula, Walter would go to the lunchroom and ask anyone willing to give him their opinion. It soon became clear that Walter was attempting to create a berry flavor and Ultradent employees affectionately dubbed it “Walterberry.” After learning about this, says Dr. Fischer, “seeing the labels that simply said ‘Berry’ just didn’t feel right.” So he scrapped the “Berry” labels and had new “Walterberry” ones printed instead. Walterberry has been Ultradent’s trademark flavor—a favorite of both patients and doctors—ever since.
