Ultradent Prodcuts Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of high-tech dental materials, devices, and instruments worldwide, is celebrating the induction of its Founder and CEO Emeritus, Dr. Dan Fischer, into the Crown Council’s Dental Hall of Fame.
The ceremony was held January 28th, 2023 during the Crown Council’s 28th Annual Meeting. Dr. Fischer’s remarkable contributions to dentistry and his overwhelming lifelong commitment to humanitarian causes around the world were noted. Dr. Jaleena Jessop, Ultradent’s Vice President of Clinical Affairs and Dr. Fischer’s daughter, joined Crown Council CEO Greg Anderson onstage to present the award.
Dr. Fischer is not only the Founder and CEO Emeritus of Ultradent, he’s also an award-winning innovator, culture builder, passionate dentist, entrepreneur, and humanitarian. He started Ultradent at his kitchen table 44 years ago. Today, Ultradent operates 16 offices around the globe, in addition to its South Jordan headquarters. The company makes over 500 products and sells them in over 130 countries worldwide. This includes the award-winning Opalescence™ teeth whitening system—the #1 professional teeth whitening brand in the world, which he pioneered.
As passionate as Dr. Fischer is about improving oral health globally, he also continues to work tirelessly to better the lives of others through his undying commitment to humanitarian work. Under his direction, Ultradent donates products to dental humanitarian missions around the world. Additionally, he’s led efforts to raise significant funds for the Utah Food Bank for several years and has made many generous donations to catastrophic natural disaster relief efforts globally.
Dr. Fischer also founded and works continually to support and fund Ultradent’s long-standing charity, The Diversity Foundation, which focuses on providing education to young people who leave the FLDS community and need a helping hand. Since its inception, The Diversity Foundation has helped over 250 young people gain a college education and assimilate successfully to the outside world.
Ultradent joins Crown Council in congratulating Dr. Fischer for his outstanding commitment to improving oral health globally.
