Parkell, manufacturer of dental materials and devices, is celebrating its 75th anniversary. Based on Long Island, New York, Parkell has been performing the vast majority of design, engineering, manufacturing, and service work in the United States, and from its same approximate footprint for 75 years.
This long presence on Long Island is a point of pride for Parkell, due to its strong commitment to its team, some of whom have been at Parkell for several decades, as well as its strong connection with the Long Island community.
“It was 75 years ago when two entrepreneurs, Alex Mitchell and Carl Parker, came together on Long Island to form Parkell,” said David Mott, president of Parkell. “Parkell’s mission today remains the same as when it was formed: to provide customers and partners with innovative, premium-quality products that enable dental professionals to give unsurpassed patient care.”
Mott continued: “Parkell’s commitment to the dental community has never been stronger. Our mission is to work ever closer with practicing dentists, in efforts to identify ongoing challenges and needs, and to work collaboratively to come up with innovative solutions. It is this connection with the dental community and our focus on quality that has gotten us to 75 years. We know that customers place a high level of trust in Parkell when using our products, and we work extremely hard to honour that trust by delivering only the best possible products and services.”
Parkell’s products are currently sold in over 60 countries, through a vast network of distributors as well as through Parkell’s new subsidiary in Europe. Parkell’s diverse portfolio of materials and devices includes: the TurboSensor ultrasonic scalers and handcrafted 25K and 30K magnetostrictive inserts and piezo tips (which service tens of thousands of dental offices in the US alone); Blu-Mousse bite registration materials; the Predicta Bioactive family of restoratives, cements, and desensitisers; Dryz gingival retraction paste; Digitest pulp vitality tester; Brush&Bond bonding agents; C&B-Metabond adhesive luting cement system; Cinch impression materials; SNAP self-cure Resin; SmarTemp temporary crown and bridge materials; Sensimatic electrosurgical device; the generations-trusted and gold standard Accufilm articulating film; and many, many more.
With a long history of forging and cultivating relationships with dental professionals from early on as students, Parkell’s commitment to creating innovative products has helped it grow with customers and remain a mainstay at schools with progressive educational programmes. Throughout the years, Parkell has supported many organisations and agencies by providing quality and performance, which has made it the go-to for reliability.
