Life Science 2021

The task of developing the healthcare systems, technology and treatments of the future requires a much sharper focus on facilitating collaboration across borders. Not only geographical – but across disciplines as well. Gothenburg has a strong and growing Life Science cluster which deserves to be highlighted from a national point of view.

Neoss may be the world’s most inventive dental implant developer today

With few solutions, Neoss solves almost all types of dental problems. This “sleeping beauty” has always been ahead of its time in many areas and are now set to strengthen Gothenburg as the home of implantology and to nurture the heritage of Per-Ingvar Brånemark the father of osseointegration.

Dr. Robert Gottlander Chief Executive Officer of Neoss.

Despite market insecurities due to the pandemic, the world leading dental venture capital company CareCapital, went ahead with the acquisition of Neoss in December 2020. Around the same time, Dr. Robert Gottlander was appointed President and Chief Executive Officer of Neoss.

Building on innovation and quality

With over forty years of dental industry experience, Dr. Gottlander has a proven track record developing and commercialising dental solutions. He led the team that established clinical and educational concepts for modern dental implantology, co-developed and launched Procera, the world’s first successful CADCAM system for dental implants, and developed new concepts combining implants and digital dentistry.

Throughout his career, Dr. Gottlander has created numerous industry-university partnerships, architecting research projects and educational programs to improve dental implant and digital technology innovation. And all of this expertise is now contributing to the further growth of Neoss as one of the world’s most inventive dental implant developer.

The Neoss brand is synonymous with innovation and quality, which has underpinned Neoss’ market leading performance in 2020 despite the coronavirus pandemic.

The increased globalization is also noticeable in dentistry with companies that reduce their market presence and communication in the local language. Neoss intends to go in the opposite direction, especially in Sweden.

“I can not stress enough how important Gotheburg and our Swedish heritage are for our owners Care Capital. They are completely focused on the dental market and are well-read on Per-Ingvar Brånemark and the cradle of implantology. The investments we are now making to complement the already well-educated organization and our offers are made to a very large extent in Gothenburg. Next year, Neoss turns 20 years old. Of course we celebrate it on site here in the city. It will be a high-quality scientific and marketing program with a focus on modern clinical flows. Professional and social networking of course. It's going to be a real party”, says Dr. Gottlander.

Dental solutions of the future

The demographic development will lead to more people needing dental implants.

“We can really compete with our cost efficiency, our system simplicity and our advanced technical solutions. The dental solutions of the future will also be developed with the help of knowledge from neighbouring industries and academia We have already begun to build up that expertise within Neoss and will continue looking for talent”, says Dr. Gottlander.
