Centrix was created in 1970 from an idea of Dr. William B. Dragan’s to bring to the dental profession an easier way to deliver composite resins and cements from the mixing pad to the tooth. The new composite materials so impressed him with their vast potential in his dental practice, that he knew a simple, efficient, and effective way of delivering composite was a must for the dentist. After much experimentation, and trial and error, Dr. Dragan developed and patented the first practical syringe delivery system for composites in 1970. This was the original Mark I syringe and the CRA (Composite Resin) tube and plug and was the foundation on which Centrix was built.

The goal of this company would be to create products aimed at helping the dentist in his everyday practice. Over the years Centrix continued to grow by expanding its product line and continuing to improve upon existing concepts through intensive R & D activity. Centrix continues to grow and lead the industry by listening to the demands of the Dental profession. Through all these years there have been many changes, improvements and challenges that have helped Centrix to grow while always keeping an eye on the quality of the product and simplicity of use. Listing to the profession and hearing what they are saying helps Centrix achieve the goal of developing better dental products, while helping the dentist in his or her everyday practice.
