From vision to excellence

Strong commitment to R&D and design

Innovative R&D and successful industrial design have been the leading values for Planmeca Group for decades. We work closely with leading universities as well as a number of end-users in order to stay at the forefront of development. Dedicated scientific knowledge and in-depth understanding of clinical workflows are vital and integrated parts of our product development and design.

Approximately 10% of the annual turnover is dedicated to R&D.

At the forefront of digital imaging

In the era of digital imaging, our imaging software and digital solutions have been leading the way. Superior image quality and ease-of-use are the most important guidelines of our R&D. 

Award-winning design and dedication to detail

One general trademark in our products is the well considered and distinguished design, which contributes both to ergonomics and safety. The key factors guiding industrial design at Planmeca Group are patient and user safety, as well as hygiene.  Several of Planmeca’s and Planmed’s well-designed, stylish devices have won rewards at design contests. 

Uncompromising hygiene 

Hygiene features are demonstrated in our products through material selection, design and technical details. The product features are also designed to meet future infection control requirements.


Over 40 years of excellence in health care technology

IDS 1971Planmeca Oy was founded in Helsinki, Finland, by Mr. Heikki Kyöstilä in 1971. Mr Kyöstilä is the President and owner of the company. Planmeca started as a small-scale business, manufacturing dental stools and instrument cabinets. Very early on, however, the company adopted a global sales approach and expanded its product range into patient chairs and dental units – and later on to 2D and 3D X-rays, CAD/CAM products and software solutions.
