Pulpdent is a family owned and operated dental research and manufacturing company established in 1947 and committed to its founding principles of education, prevention and proactive dental care so that people can live healthier and more productive lives.
Pulpdent’s research and product development is directed toward unlocking nature’s healing powers with bioactive materials that mimic the physical and chemical properties of tooth structure, behave favourably in the moist oral environment, and maximise the potential for remineralisation.
Pulpdent’s founder, Dr. Harold Berk, practiced dentistry for almost 65 years and taught on the faculty of Tufts University School of Dental Medicine from 1946 to 2005. Dr. Berk’s core principles continue to guide the company:
“It has always been my mission to save teeth and help my patients live in comfort and smile with confidence.”
“I start with the least invasive treatment plan, and if it should fail, there is always the option to take the next step.”
“I have learned that nature has tremendous healing powers, and one of my responsibilities is to create an environment that is favourable for the natural healing process.”
