Planmeca believes in Finnish know-how

Strong faith in Finnish know-how and product development is one of the key factors in the international success of Planmeca. For nearly half a century, the company has been driving dental patient care with its groundbreaking health technology solutions. The company's care units, imaging equipment and software solutions are still designed and manufactured in Finland.

Planmeca believes that high-quality education, investment in research and cooperation between different actors are the cornerstones of technological excellence and development.

“We are living an exciting time in a digitalizing world. Finland is exceptionally well-poised to develop innovations in high technology and health technology that can change the world,” says Heikki Kyöstilä, Founder and CEO of Planmeca Group.

Innovations do not create themselves

The CleverHealth Network offers Planmeca the opportunity to further strengthen cooperation with other industry actors.

“Innovations don’t come out of thin air: they require scientific research and effective cooperation. Ecosystem projects combine the expertise of the business world, the clinical excellence of HUS Helsinki University Hospital and the health data in its high-quality data pool,” says Tuomas Lokki, Deputy CEO of Planmeca.

“Such models of cooperation are a prerequisite for new innovations. We look forward to seeing what new solutions and productizable services the cooperation brings,” he says.
