DenTek was founded in Petaluma, California, in 1984 by John Jansheski. From its inception, DenTek has been focused on providing Innovative consumer oral care products. The company began with just one product, the Dental Pik, which was invented by John's father (a dentist - are you seeing a pattern here?).
Using the Dental Pik as a building block, DenTek was built one product at a time with one goal - to provide innovative solutions for today's oral care zealot. The DenTek spirit of innovation continues to drive the company. Since moving to Maryville, Tennessee, in 2001, DenTek has launched dozens of zealot-focused innovations. And we're just getting warmed up. With Oral Care of increasing importance to people everywhere, DenTek takes its mantra - Oral Health for Life - very seriously. We have many more smile-inducing products in development. We added our Professional Division in 2007. DenTek Professional is working to help oral health care professionals encourage patient cooperation through the use of our many well-received products. Stay tuned for the latest news.
