Quintessence Publishing is a family of authors and professionals who work together to bring you the latest and greatest information in dentistry. We pride ourselves on our commitment to excellence, so you know you’re getting the best when you see our branding.
At Quintessence, we're dedicated to advancing dental education and knowledge. Our comprehensive range of books, peer-reviewed journals, and symposia caters to the needs of dental professionals and students alike. Our specialty is clinical manuals—written by clinicians for clinicians to demonstrate the latest procedures, techniques, and technology available to improve patient outcomes—but we also publish scores of scientific articles and other titles written by leading experts in the field. What truly sets us apart from other publishers is our editorial and production standards; the quality of our images is unmatched in dental publishing, and our publications are meticulously edited to package the information in a way that is easily understood and applicable to daily practice.
Founded in 1949 in Berlin, Germany, the company initially published German-language journals and books in dentistry. The first English-language journal, Quintessence International, was launched in 1969 following the opening of the company's US office in Chicago. Since then the company has expanded its operations worldwide, establishing additional offices in London, Tokyo, Paris, Barcelona, Prague, Milan, and Warsaw. In addition, publishing partners in Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Greece, Hungary, Indonesia, Korea, Malaysia, and Romania oversee the publication of translated editions of Quintessence books and journals. Additionally, Quintessence regularly sponsors continuing education seminars, ranging from small-scale workshops to large international congresses that attract more than 50,000 participants.
For over 70 years Quintessence has been meeting the needs of both the beginning dental student and the experienced practitioner, and over the course of that time we have worked with over 3,000 authors to publish over 60 professional journals, more than 1,500 book titles, and 300+ multimedia products. As part of our commitment to innovative, high-quality publishing, Quintessence has actively sought new ways to use emerging media technology for the electronic transfer of information, which is reflected in our online journal editions, digital journals, videos, webinars, and podcasts.
The Quintessence name has become synonymous with excellence, and we strive to earn that commendation in everything that we do. We invite you to become part of our family.
