Patterson Dental

Founded: 1877
CEO: Paul A. Guggenheim

As one of North America’s largest distributors of dental merchandise and technology leaders for dental practices, Patterson Dental offers over 105,000 products and a wide range of leading equipment, software, technology solutions and services.
From humble beginnings in a one-room Milwaukee drugstore in 1877, Patterson has grown to meet the needs of dental professionals through more than 80 branch offices nationwide and over 1,300 sales representatives and equipment specialists in the United States and Canada (Patterson Canada).
As part of its commitment to be the one source dental professionals can depend on for everything they need, Patterson acquired software developers EagleSoft, Inc. in 1997 and CAESY Education Systems in 2004. The Company further expanded its technology offering with the acquisitions of Dolphin Imaging Systems and Dolphin Practice Management, the world’s leading providers of 3D imaging and practice management software for specialized dental practitioners (including orthodontists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons and oral and maxillofacial radiologists).
While dentistry has experienced many changes over the years, relationships with customers remain strong and growing – built on a solid foundation of trust, tradition and technological innovation.
