Aseptico

Woodinville

Most people have never heard of Aseptico, even though they’ve been in close proximity with the company’s products. The family-owned business, marking its 40th anniversary this year, is the only domestic manufacturer of electric motors for restorative, implant and endodontic dentistry. It sells that equipment under its own brand name and as a supplier and designer for other manufacturers. Aseptico is also a major producer of portable field dental equipment for humanitarian organizations, public health agencies, individual practitioners and the military.

Aseptico does its own R&D work to stay abreast of advances in dentistry, and handles many production functions in house, from design to machining upholstery, laser etching and welding. It is now applying that expertise to other medical sectors, such as hair restoration.
