A Legacy of Achievement in the Dental Industry

Since 1887, Ritter has had a proud heritage within the dental industry, serving professionals as a privately held company. A tradition of precise workmanship and rigorous production processes began in Germany, with the company’s founder, Frank Ritter. His pioneering spirit led to Ritter Dental’s evolution into a major dental equipment manufacturer with a global reach.

1887: Frank Ritter pioneers one of the world’s first treatment chairs for dentists and establishes a legacy of developing products that will change the face of dentistry.

1912: Ritter Dental introduces a control panel for dental instruments – a major advancement and the precursor to technology in dentistry.

1917: The company unveils an integrated treatment system, consisting of a dental chair with a control panel, drill, cuspidor, saliva ejector, tray table and air/water syringes — a system that becomes the foundation for modern Dental Unit designs.

Today: As a global leader in the dental equipment industry, Ritter Dental continues to offer groundbreaking products and effectual patient care systems.
