TePe To Bring Healthy Smiles for Life
In 1965 TePe introduced the triangular dental stick, a significant contribution to dental care at the time. With the aid and scientific support from two professors at the School of Dentistry in Malmö, wood carver Henning Eklund came up with the innovative design which marked the beginning of TePe. Our efforts within life science and health awareness are one key to our success. That’s why dentists have a professional partnership with TePe since decades. And that’s why they recommend today’s many new products and services to many of their patients.
Today TePe is a global company with subsidiaries and distribution around the globe. TePe remains a family owned company, with all manufacturing in Malmö Sweden. The mission to develop quality dental products and solutions together with dental experts to inspire people to live a healthier life remains the same.
TePe cares about people’s health and raising awareness of oral health and the connection to general health. Therefore, we will keep striving to develop solutions for long term well-being and a better quality of life for people. All TePe’s products and solutions are developed based on clinical knowledge and in collaboration with dental professionals. Our responsibility for people, health and the environment are considered throughout the innovation process.
Raising awareness about preventive oral care and the connection between oral health and general health is more important than ever. TePe are proud to offer products and solutions which promote long-term oral health and thus the quality of life for people worldwide.
Our oral care range is appreciated and endorsed by dental professionals for its high quality, clinical application, and because it fulfils the strict criteria for safe and hygienic oral use. Our business depends on reliable and high-quality suppliers and raw materials that meet the demands of our own production as well as demands and expectations from our customers, end-consumers and other stakeholders. But they also expect us to do the right thing; they trust us to make good choices.
Innovation, knowledge and health run through TePe’s development as a company. We see it as our responsibility to contribute to a sustainable future in all possible aspects of our business and to keep it an integral part of our work. Sustainability at TePe means ensuring environmental, economic, and social well-being for today and tomorrow. It means meeting the needs of people and society, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. It is about living within the limits of the planet and protecting the environment.
It is our belief that becoming a more sustainable company and having a lower environmental impact is not just the right thing it is also a good way to help customers and consumers make conscious choices and achieve their environmental goals.
For more than 50 years we’ve worked closely with dental experts to deliver the best dental products available. And we’ve been successful. Now we’re taking the next step towards a healthier life. We’re launching TePe GOOD, a new sustainable toothbrush and an overall sustainability initiative to make a difference for the good of the planet and for your good. The TePe GOOD Toothbrush, a unique toothbrush with the same TePe quality, design and feeling as always, is made from 96% bio-based plastic. Thanks to the use of the renewable raw materials, sugar cane and castor oil, we now manage to recirculate up to 95% of the carbon dioxide emissions during its life cycle.
