02. Who are we?
IVOhealth, holding company of IVOdent, delivers quality oral care and healthcare products throughout Southern Africa. The head office is in Cape Town, South Africa, with a team of dedicated staff throughout the country.
IVOhealth’s mission is to source and supply quality brands and products that improve health and well-being. Originally started as IVOdent in 1998 by entrepreneur and dental technician Gary Hockly, the company initially supplied highly specialized oral care products to dentists and dental laboratories. Recognising a lack of oral care products available to consumers led Gary to supply pharmacies and retailers with leading brands such as GUM and alcohol-free mouthwash Dentyl pH. Always on the look out for exciting and innovative products Gary has since expanded the company and we now supply a range of leading brands such as Aloclair, Letibalm, Philips Sonicare and a homeopathic range that includes Trip Ease, Drink Ease and No Jet Lag. IVOhealth’s head office is in Observatory, Cape Town and the company supplies dentists, dental laboratories, pharmacies and retailers throughout Southern Africa. Dedicated staff of 23 includes a marketing and management team, a pharmacist, an oral hygienist, dental technicians, dental assistants and qualified nursing sisters. IVOhealth brands include Philips Sonicare, GUM Dentyl pH, Panasonic DentaCare, Salli Saddle Chairs, Protefix denture range and Letibalm. Through the IVOdent division they supply dentists and dental laboratories with the following specialist ranges: Ivoclar Vivadent Technical, AmannGirrbach Dental Equipment, Yeti Dental Consumables.
