Headquartered in Lucerne (Switzerland) Curaden AG is taking over the world with innovative oral care products and solutions. Our company, which oral health brand is CURAPROX, is present in over 75 countries on all five continents.

Working with dental professionals in teaching, research and practice since 1972, our brand CURAPROX has been a synonym for oral health tools that are as gentle, effective and save as they can get.

As a company, we envision a healthier world. A world where passionate dental professionals, savvy consumers, and effective products work hand in hand towards good oral health. 

A world where good oral health contributes to overall happiness and wellbeing. Our core message ‘better health for you’ is based on three findings:

  • Good oral hygiene can be encouraged and taught. It’s a matter of having the right knowledge, skills and dedication.

  • The most common diseases of the mouth can be prevented through correct oral hygiene practices. A clean tooth simply doesn’t get sick. 

  • Numerous studies have shown the link between oral health and general health. A healthy mouth can help prevent diabetes, stroke and lung infections.


These principles along with prophylaxis - the preservation of oral health - are the essence of everything that we do.


To sum it up: «Ore Sano Homo Sanus» - a healthy mouth equals a healthy body and mind.


This is why Curaden advocates better health for YOU.
