創業者 Dr. Dan Fischer
現在、歯科業界の国際的リーダーに成長したウルトラデントは、Dr. Dan Fischerの自宅地下室でスタートしました。創業者であるDr. Fischer,そしてウルトラデントの成り立ちについて詳しくご紹介します。
若き歯科医師であったDr. Fischerは、質の高い歯科治療を行うために、迅速な滲出液抑制が不可欠であることに気が付きました。そして、当時は滲出液を確実にコントロールする製品が無く、自ら開発を試みました。ウルトラデント社の主力製品であるアストリンジェント（そしてその後、ジェル状のビスコスタットが誕生）は、歯科医療において必要とされていた製品であり、Dr. Fischerの洞察力、決断力、そして自ら多くの試験を繰り返し、数えきれない時間をかけて作り上げてきたその意欲の賜物なのです。
それから30年以上経った今も、Dr. Fischerは歯科業界に革命を起こし続けています。数々の特許を取得し、最先端の歯科医療について講演や執筆活動を行っています。また、娘（Dr. Jaleena Jessop）の歯科医院で日々患者と接し、ウルトラデントが製品や手順を開発する際の哲学である低侵襲歯科医療を実践しています。
Dr. Fischerは、世界的な口腔健康の向上のために絶えず努力し、いつの日かカリエスを無くすため完全治療法を発見したいと願っています。Dr. Fischerは慈善家として、定期的に世界中の十分な歯科治療を受診できない子供たちのために、シーラント治療を提供するSealants For Smilesなどの団体に積極的に協力、寄付を行っています。また、社会的に弱い立場にいる人や、恵まれない子供たちに教育の機会を提供する活動にも積極的に取り組んでいます。
Dr. Fischerは、仕事以外の時間、庭の手入れをしたり、妻や子どもたち、30人の孫と過ごすことを日々楽しんでいます。強い道徳観に基づき、そしてウルトラデントのCore Valueに基づいた生活を送っています。
