SOUTH JORDAN, UT — Erwin Fischer has been appointed executive vice president of Ultradent Products Inc. As executive vice president, Erwin will continue working closely with Dr. Dan Fischer, president and CEO of Ultradent, to build upon the company’s vision to improve oral health globally.

“Erwin has proven himself loyal, caring, and hard working. He lives all our core values in quality ways,” Dr. Fischer said.     

“Ultradent started as a family business that has developed into an extended family of over 1,100 employees,” Dr. Fischer said. “Contrary to the common evolution of many businesses, particularly in the United States, it is my intent that Ultradent continue as a private family company for generations to come. I believe this translates into significant benefits to our customers and our employees. Erwin’s role, combined with our goal to not sell the company or go public, enables us to chart our own course for the future and contribute to the current and future economic health of America as well as that of other countries.”

Erwin has been with Ultradent from its inception—even prior to its incorporation in 1978. For the last six years, he has served as the vice president of information technology. Erwin’s notable achievements include management of two major ERP implementations, certification as an Oracle DBA Master, experience as an Oracle developer and business analyst, five years with Vistage Key Executive Group, and various other IT certifications. These accomplishments have coincided with Erwin’s managerial role in the development of a talented team of IT experts, the implementation of ITIL best practices in Ultradent’s IT department, and certification via the Kellogg School of Management to help strengthen Ultradent’s best practices. Erwin has also been a core team member of Ultradent’s strategic leadership group.  

“It’s been a great privilege for me to work with so many incredible people in seeing that our corporate vision is realized,” Erwin said. “Our commitment to dentistry and its ability to help humans everywhere is very much ‘in our blood.’ I want to see Ultradent continue to grow and succeed for many generations to come.”
