Patterson Dental partners with dental practices of all sizes to help oral health professionals practice extraordinary dentistry.

Patterson’s history of serving dental professionals dates back to our company’s founding in 1877. Since then, Patterson has grown to meet the needs of private practices and large group dental networks through more than 70 branch offices in the United States and Canada. As one of North America’s largest providers of dental products and solutions, Patterson Dental offers more than 100,000 products and a wide range of innovative equipment, software, technology solutions and services.

The high demand for dentistry and rapidly advancing technology are the hallmarks of growth in the dental segment.

Patterson’s knowledgeable teams that are dedicated to each market are keenly focused on putting customers first in all we do and helping them grow profitably.

The 2001 acquisition of Webster Veterinary marked Patterson’s entry into the animal health industry, and the 2015 acquisition of Animal Health International, Inc., firmly positioned Patterson as the largest animal health product distributor in North America. In addition to serving retail and farm stores, our animal health businesses provide products, equipment, technology and solutions to private practice veterinary clinics, group- and corporate-owned veterinary clinics and hospitals, and livestock producers across the companion animal, production animal and equine markets.

The increase in pet ownership and health care expenditures on those pets, along with the increasing global middle class demand for animal protein, are keys to growth in the markets we serve.
