A History of Manufacturing in the USA
Tess Corporation was founded in 1989 by a dentist who saw the need for high-quality, value-priced toothbrushes made in the U.S.A. The company experienced success distributing toothbrushes in its early years and built our first manufacturing plant in 1995. After changes in ownership and continued growth, Tess established in 2002 a state-of-the-art imprinting center for toothbrushes. A few years later Tess acquired AIT Dental adding implant prophy kits and interdental products to our portfolio. In more recent years, we've added new imprinting machinery and additional imprinting capabilities (e.g., kit bags and floss).
Tess moved to a new, expanded facility in 2010 where we house our entire operation under one roof. We have become one of the country's leading manufacturers of custom toothbrushes and oral hygiene products for dental professionals and their patients. We continue to vigorously grow and expand our array of products. As our product line broadened, the company name was amended to Tess Oral Health to better represent our offerings. As Tess Oral Health, the company is poised for continued growth and success.
