“We continuously challenge the status quo and are committed to improving dental health. Every single day.” This is the purpose of our organization. In other words: this is the reason why we get out of bed. Every single day.
At MIKRONA, we favour an integrated and interdisciplinary approach by joining forces, knowledge, and technologies with experts and other competent players in the industry, and even cross-industry. We are committed to creating and implementing sustainable concepts in order to move dentistry & orthodontics forward. We provide high-quality education and state-of-the-art products, equipment, and digitization services. It goes without saying that we conduct our business in a legal and ethical manner in complete compliance with international, national, and regional laws and regulations.
Our Corporate Responsibility
MIKRONA is conscious of the impact the company makes on society, the environment and the economy. Below are just a few of the considerations we make on a daily basis in order to be a responsible organisation.
We believe that each product we develop, should be built sustainably. Our products are built to last and can be recycled sustainably when they reach their end of life. We also take steps to reduce our consumption as a team and as a manufacturer of single use plastics and favour where possible recycled or partially recycled materials and packaging.
MIKRONA is committed to being an equal opportunity employer that encourages diversity and inclusion in the workplace and all employment practices. We are proud to have a team that is 40% female and hope to increase that percentage in the near future.
MIKRONA is committed not only to do good in the areas specified above but also not to simply maximize profits, but make sure the business operations positively impact the environment, people, and society.
