Azena Medical, LLC.
Our journey in oral healthcare began with a company called Zap Lasers. Zap was founded in 1998 with the mission of developing and marketing simple and affordable soft-tissue surgical laser systems for dental professionals. In the ensuing 12-years the company became an innovative market leader in dental lasers, accomplishing many industry-firsts including:, The first soft-tissue laser marketed at less than $10,000 in the US, The first soft-tissue laser with a touchscreen display and user interface, The first soft-tissue laser with preset procedure settings, The first soft-tissue laser designed specifically for Orthodontics, The first completely cordless, handheld soft-tissue laser, In 2010 Zap was acquired by a larger dental products manufacturer.
After serving in leadership positions at several other dental products organizations, in 2014 two of Zap’s key team members joined forces with two talented engineers to start Azena. The founders of Azena collectively have over 60 years of industry experience. This experience includes developing, manufacturing, and marketing Class IV surgical laser systems for professional dental applications, as well as other dental and oral care products.
