About us

Since 1908, Cavex has been active in the development and manufacture of solutions for the dental industry. Right from the start in Haarlem, all the company's operations have been in-house. Every new Cavex product is the result of intensive collaboration between the departments R&D, Regulatory, Production, Marketing, Sales and Logistics. This enables Cavex to develop high-quality new products.

Cavex: manufacturer for dental professionals since 1908

With Haarlem as its permanent home base, Cavex has been inventing and manufacturing innovative solutions within the dental industry since 1908. We have been known as a manufacturer of top products with guaranteed quality from the offset. Find out how Cavex’ story began when two ambitious Haarlem pharmacists laid the foundations for one of the largest dental product manufacturers in the world.

Haarlem based pharmacists Keur & Sneltjes

Back in 1908, there was one single solution to dental problems: extraction. The Haarlem pharmacists Keur and Sneltjes were convinced that extraction could be made a lot more pleasant for patients under local anesthesia. Hence the first product for dentistry was born: Selectocaine anesthetic fluid.

'Cavex Silver Amalgam'

Over time and due to the increasing availability of dental materials, the goal of treatment shifted from ‘extraction’ to ‘conservation and restoration’. The established dental product company Keur & Sneltjes developed a revolutionary filler based on amalgam. As tooth decay (cavity) now belonged to the past (ex), the name Cavex was born. Later, the company split into two brands: ‘Keur & Sneltjes’ and ‘Cavex Holland’.
