The Dental Innovation Center (DICE) of the University Medical Center Mainz operates in close collaboration with the IZKS as your partner in developing, implementing and clinically testing innovative dental products.

By bridging theory with practice, academia, education and industrial research, we are committed to pioneering concepts and products for dental practices and laboratories.

As your partner, we provide tailored support to start-ups, small and medium-sized enterprises, and major industrial partners in developing and executing clinical trials and innovations within the dental field.

Our interdisciplinary team, merging dental and regulatory expertise, assists in developing your product and designing clinical studies. We guide you through the approval process, generating clinical data for various dental products, ranging from innovative toothbrushes to novel biomaterials and prosthetic materials.

Aligned with the Medical Device Regulation (MDR), we adhere to heightened requirements for introducing and monitoring medical devices in the EU. Particularly, products incorporating nanomaterials, substantive medical devices, and reusable surgically invasive instruments require reclassification under the MDR.

We are here as a competent point of contact, ready to collaborate and develop a tailored concept based on your individual needs.
