Swiss quality under one roof 

It is important to Geistlich that all research and development is done in-house and that it meets its high standards of Swiss quality. A wide spectrum of in-house research takes place – from biochemistry to cell biology, and material research to research analytics. When research is carried out at Geistlich, it is done with the precept of supporting the body’s own regenerative processes with biological products. The result of this commitment is the regeneration of natural tissue with the interaction between product and body. Before launching a product, Geistlich always endeavors to prove its clinical efficacy in a watertight manner. 

«You’re either a pioneer or you remain static.»
