New technology and innovations are making the human life much easier than before.

There can be no medical progress without technological development, and there is no “Healthy Future” without innovations.
Fulfilling all the approaches, GC is standing tall for almost a century with the mission statement: “to improve the dental health of patients around the world with high-quality dental products”.

Visionary Leaders Ensuring the Company’s Growth
GC was found in Tokyo during the hard time of great depression in 1921 by a young chemist Kiyoshi NAKAO with his two friends ENJO and Tokuemon MIZUNO. The three founders had to deal with several disappointments and bitter setbacks while trying to bring innovation in the dental material. However, it was precisely these difficulties that led to unforeseen changes of direction and turning points that would later be crucial for the long-term success of the company. Now, what started 97 years or almost a century ago as a small laboratory in Tokyo, Japan, has become a global company that is committed to contributing the people’s oral health around the world in 100 countries.
The philosophy of highly valued corporate quality (including products and services), catalyzed by the consistent customer-oriented efforts and the legacy have been brought to India by another Visionary Leader Dr. Sriram Mudambi, Managing Director of GC India Dental. He is an amalgamation of sorts who is familiar with five Indian languages. Dr. Sriram was born in Delhi and raised in Hyderabad, graduated in Dentistry from Bangalore. After completing post-graduation in Restorative Dentistry from the National University of Singapore, Dr. Sriram was offered to start the Indian Operations for GC, convinced by his several material science researches with GC restoratives.
Over the years, he has been interested in management and graduated from the prestigious Indian School of Business with the PGPMAX program. An avid audiophile, musician and a lyricist Dr. Sriram with his strategic thinking, business outlook and thorough subject knowledge has brought a rapid growth of GC in India.
