VITA Calendar 2018

All the little helpers of VITA Zahnfabrik

It all started with one man: When the co-founder of the VITA Zahnfabrik and partner of Heinrich Rauter, Dr. C. Hiltebrandt, developed the Helios teeth in 1926, nobody expected the number of dental innovations that was to come over the following 90 years. Such achievements can hardly be credited to single persons. Instead, there are hundreds of people involved in thinking and acting to support forming the future of dentistry and dental technology.

If you take a close look, you will see all the little helpers who contribute to success each and every day. Because working together is the only way to create something new.

Discover our “perfect match” between all the people and materials: It has been the basis of the precise work of dental technicians and dentists for over 90 years, and improved the lives of generations of patients.

We hope you enjoy your findings/experience/journey!
