It's one man and two words.


It's a passion, a sense of

sharing, values and feelings.


It's a seed that became a tree.


Fruits ripening at the rhythm of

the seasons of the entire planet.


The blazing red hyphen

of a logo proudly

displayed as a human and

professional recognition.


Whoever obtains it feels

gratified in their entire person.


Our humble contribution to the

art of Dentistry exalts itself in

leafing through the pages that

Willi wrote, the paths he paved

and the values he passed on.


Whoever obtains it knows

whom they owe it to; to their

righteousness, to their hard work,


and to the eye of a Master.


This human adventure is

second to none. It is unique

and singular, as is the one who


imagined it and gave it life.


The one who forgets their roots


never goes very far or gets lost.


May this identity logo always

remind us of the kindness

with which Willi Geller, our

Maestro, attributed to each.


and every one of us.  

 Let us be proud of the symbol;

young and less young let's

wear it far and brilliantly.


 Our humble contribution to the

art of Dentistry exalts itself in

leafing through the pages that

Willi wrote, the paths he paved

and the values he passed on. 


Each and every one of us has in

her, in him, a sense of fulfilment

thanks to the special relationship

kept with him. It is the translation

of gratitude. It lives with us

and accompanies us.


May this « who's who »,

this family album make

our union live.


member since 1989
