The foundation of the initiative "proDente" in autumn 1998 represents a milestone in the communication towards patients.
The aim of the initiative is to make the German population aware of the fact that the private investment in one's dental / oral health has considerable positive effects on the overall health condition and thus contributes to the physical and mental well-being. The motto of the initiative. "proDente" is to create a "desire for beautiful and healthy teeth".
The initiative "proDente", which is supposedly unique in the dental world, is a joint project of the German associations of dentists (BZÄK / FVDZ), dental technicians (VDZI), dental dealers (BVD) and manufacturers (VDDI e.V.) who combine efforts in informing the German population about maintaining and restoring dental and oral health.
