About Us

How it all began

Our History began in 1962 when founders Louis E. Brooks, Jack Alpert and George Kauer set out to advance the dental industry with first-rate products. Together they pioneered the concept of dry air with the introduction of Dento-Dri, a high capacity compressed air dryer for the dental system. This was the first time dentistry’s need for dry, low humidity, compressed air was successfully addressed. Soon after Dento-Dri took the market by storm, Air Techniques quickly became an industry leader bringing many first time advances in utility and digital products to dental professionals.

Over 60 years later…

Air Techniques, Inc. is a global corporation continuing to pave the way with compelling, reliable dental products, ensuring today’s dental professionals are “Equipped for Life®”. With a strong product portfolio of utility systems, digital imaging and merchandise, Air Techniques products are capable of equipping the smallest practice to the largest university or hospital.

We are committed to maintaining our ISO 13485:2016 MDSAP registration certification which reinforces our pledge to quality and customer satisfaction. Air Techniques continues to represent superior quality and is a trusted brand to dealers and dental professionals worldwide.
