Benco Dental, headquartered in Northeastern Pennsylvania, is the largest family-owned dental distributor in the United States, offering a full array of supplies, equipment and services to dentists across the nation. Within the past 88 years, the company has developed distribution innovations that have become industry standards and in 2018, launched an Innovation Index. This key metric tracks the percentage of products sold that were introduced in the previous three years.

Based out of Cuxhaven, Germany, VOCO performs extensive research and development in the fields of direct and indirect restoratives, oral care and digital dentistry, setting new standards in the creation of innovative dental products and application aids to provide better solutions to dentists throughout the world. VOCO researchers partner and maintain close contact with over 150 universities and research institutes worldwide, and have been leading several research projects co-sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Research. This has enabled VOCO to act as a technological forerunner in several material development areas. As a leader in Nano-technology, VOCO products have received high praise and recognition in the U.S. with top ratings from The Dental Advisor, Reality and other independent institutes.

“We see many similarities between Benco and VOCO,” said Leif Ebert, CEO of VOCO America, Inc. “Both companies have been family owned for generations, which gives us the advantage of operating on a mid to long-term strategy rather than having to think quarter-to-quarter. Both companies have achieved enormous growth over the past few decades, and we are looking forward to continuing this success story together.”
