Triodent was founded in 2003 by dentist and inventor Simon McDonald with the aim of manufacturing products that made the dentist’s job easier, with better outcomes for the patient. Dr McDonald’s first product was the Tri-Clip. He followed this in 2005 with the V-Ring – the first retainer ring with V-shaped tines and the first made from nickel-titanium. The V-Ring was named Top Matrix System by The Dental Advisor in 2008.
In May 2008, Triodent launched the next generation of V-Ring, the V3. In 2009 the V3 was named Top Sectional Matrix System by The Dental Advisor, a title it won again in 2010 and 2011. Reality awarded V3 five stars for 2009 and 2010, and in the same two years it won the Dentaltown Townie Choice Award for top matrix system. The V3 is also acknowledged as an outstanding product by Clinicians Report.

Hu-Friedy listens to you—the dental practitioner—and creates products that are easier to use, more efficient, and put less stress on you and your patients so that you can provide the best clinical care. Through this product philosophy, we have made quality our trademark and we seek to earn that distinction again and again, every day we go to work.
The high level of craftsmanship that goes into each step of the creation of our dental instruments is evident every time you use them. Our staff completes 80% of the manufacturing process by hand—they meticulously mold, treat, and sharpen instruments to perfection, which is why we call them artisans. Our proprietary processes and best-in-class materials match their precision and the three work together flawlessly.
