MDC's history

MDC Dental is a 100% Mexican-owned company founded in 1974 by Dr. Rogelio H. Ramírez Martínez, our current president. It all started when he discovered a formula for making acrylic which gained a reputation for quality within the acrylic market. He worked together with his son Francisco Javier Ramírez Delgado and Bertha Buenrostro in the manufacture of acrylics, alcohol-based investments and separators in the garage of a house in Zapopan, Jalisco.

Following the company’s initial period, and after it had become a supplier servicing small orders from clients in Guadalajara, Francisco Javier Ramírez Delgado went to Mexico City with no knowledge of the city or contacts there. He nevertheless managed to obtain small orders that enabled him to progressively expand and break into markets in major Mexican cities. Excellent business and advertising strategies helped MDC to build public awareness of the company and promote its image.

MDC has been invited as an exhibitor to prestigious Mexican and international dental conferences such as: AMIC and Alta Técnica in Mexico City; ARIC in Guadalajara; Midwinter Show in Chicago; CDA in Anaheim, California; Dental Conference in NY; Dental Conference in Cologne, Germany (IDS); SINO DENTAL in China, in addition to others.

The company also enjoys the support and backing of the industry’s most prominent opinion leaders, who give courses and talks to demonstrate the use of MDC products.

Since 1987 the headquarters of MDC has been located at: Calle Industria del Plástico 2113, Fracc. Industrial Zapopan Norte in Zapopan, Jalisco, Mexico. We also have offices in Mexico City and Gardena, California, USA.

Our plant has a modern quality control laboratory and a special area for research and development.

We have also obtained ISO 9001:2008, CE, FDA and GMP certifications, which attest to the quality of our products and processes.
