The history of Seiler Scheidegger Dentaltechnik begins in 1948.

Rudolf Seiler and Werner Scheidegger meet at a dental conference. Connected by their common passion for holistic dental technology and their experiences, which complement each other perfectly, they decide to found their own dental laboratory.

The journey begins: the business opens in Sumatrastrasse in Zurich.

The first prosthetic challenges are tackled at two wooden tables, each with a table motor and a sparsely equipped dental laboratory. Demand is high. The small dental technology company is soon able to hire its first employees.

The dental team continues to grow with three new employees and the company’s first apprentice.


Commissioning of the first ceramic furnace

The commissioning of a ce­ra­mic furnace marks a decisive technological advance in dentistry. The first jacket crowns are soon produced.

Change in management



Thomas Mauerer and Bernhard Scheidegger take over the ma­nage­ment of the company after bolstering the dental clinic since their training in the 1960s.


Dental technicians begin producing zirconium crowns, which, even today, are still among the preferred materials for dental restorations thanks to their aes­t­he­tics, biocompatibility and durability.

Purchase of the first milling machine

Accuracy and productivity are increased by the company’s first CNC milling machine.

First 3D printer

Seiler Scheidegger Den­tal­tech­nik further increases its precision and efficiency with its first 3D printer.


The dental la­bo­ra­tory becomes a certified “NobelProcera® network laboratory” and “Straumann® Original Ambassador”.
