  • Curaprox is the oral care brand of Curaden AG in the premium segment
  • Curaden AG was formed in 1972 and has set the pace in oral care as recommended by dental professionals. The goal is to achieve the highest possible acceptance with maximum efficacy and lowest possible adverse effect
  • In the end, it is users who decide on the efficacy and/or harmfulness of an oral care product. Based on this insight and in cooperation with Jiri Sedelmayer († 2019), Curaden has developed methods and training sessions for individually-trained oral prophylaxis (iTOP). Staff working in surgeries, pharmacies and care facilities are trained in teeth cleaning in line with this iTOP concept.
  • Curaden is a Swiss-owned company domiciled in Kriens near Lucerne, Switzerland. Products are sold globally around the world. All CURAPROX products are designed and developed in Switzerland, which is where the majority are also manufactured
