In 1965 we introduced the triangular dental stick, a significant contribution to dental care at the time. With the aid and scientific support from two professors at the School of Dentistry in Malmö, wood carver Henning Eklund came up with the innovative design which marked the beginning of TePe. Our efforts within life science and health awareness is one key to our success. That’s why dentists have a professional partnership with TePe since decades. And that’s why they recommend today’s many new products and services to many of their patients.
Today we are a global company with subsidiaries and distribution around the globe. TePe remains a family owned company, with all manufacturing in Malmö Sweden. The mission to develop quality dental products and solutions together with dental experts to inspire people to live a healthier life remains the same.

In connection with TePe's 50th anniversary in 2015, the Eklund family established the Eklund Foundation for Odontological Research and Education, resting on a donation of €5.5 million. The foundation was created in line with the family’s vision of good oral health for everyone as a way to contribute to knowledge and development within the odontological field for many years to come.
