Codent’s history began in 1985 when Mark Fang opened a dental and surgical instrument development and production center in Taipei (Taiwan). Several years later, he made the decision to transfer the business to Kaohsiung, the nerve center of the medical industry in South East Asia. Since then, Codent has continued to specialise in the design, manufacture and distribution of dynamic dental and surgical instruments aiming for excellence in each of its three areas: R&D, Production and Sales.
Considered as the region’s pioneer in the dental industry, today Codent is one of the leading companies in the sector in Asia and worldwide. Operating in nearly 100 countries, Codent has cutting-edge infrastructures combining technicality, quality and innovation enabling it to position itself as the perfect partner for the most demanding dentists. In order to be closer to its customers in the Europe/Middle East/Africa (EMEA) zone, Codent set up a European subsidiary in Leipzig (Germany), Codent Europe GmbH to develop its regional platform responsible for distribution, technical support, customer service and training.
Codent’s design office in Kaohsiung has established itself as one of the most important in Asia in the search for innovative technologies for air turbines, contra-angles, micromotors and surgical devices. Its regular collaborations with design offices in Europe and the United States, its quality standards which are some of the highest on the market and the stringent nature of its specifications in terms of precision and hygiene, guarantee the development of high-level products that match the expectations of the most demanding users. Constantly listening to dentists, Codent continues to innovate and design products suited to their constraints and the specific features of their job.
State-of-the-art equipment, the use of high-quality materials and extensive testing means that the Codent range complies with the strictest standards. Codent is ISO 13485 certified.
