Teledyne Water Pik Our roots in the dental profession trace back to 1866 when Lee Smith purchased a small dental supply house in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania upon his return from the Civil War. Smith went on to form the American Dental Trade Association in 1881 and helped direct its growth for the next 25 years.

Today the company combines the experience and tradition of its well recognized brand names with a commitment to growth through product development and acquisition. Current business strategy is to augment current market entries with products which offer the dentist an improvement in function, technique, convenience, or some combination of all three through innovation and improved technology.
