Searching for excellence
This story began in Bologna, where everything breathes with science and art and where famous University of Bologna that saw Kopernik, Petrarca and Michelangelo is situated. Almost a century ago, in 1935, Italian engineer Aldo Castellini founded a small company for dental equipment production under his own name here.
Today Саstellini is yet another dignity of Italian design and symbol of premium dentistry. Brand’s units have been delivered to the best clinics worldwide for more than 80 years. 15 years ago UNIDENT started to supply machines with prestigious (СА) Саstellini mark to Russia.
ITALIAN STYLE SECRET
When we mention Italian design famous names come back to mind: Armani and Versace — fashion, Pininfarina — motor industry, Sottsass and Pesce — interior. Perfect harmony and impeccable taste is a symbol of the Italian style. Many people attribute this to special optics developed by citizens of Apennines historically as there are architectural masterpieces everywhere. Italians themselves believe that their passion for beautiful things and ability to turn any thing to works of art arise out of a special attitude to life. As iconic Italian designer Gaetano Pesce once said, “things should improve life, add warmth, colour and feelings to it. Design purpose is to improve psychological health of a man, make life comfortable and happy”. It is not a function of a thing — dress, coffee machine, motorbike, or dental chair — that is important. Made in Italy means beautifully crafted.
FROM THE PAST TO THE FUTURE
Саstellini machines are hi end equipment. Every attempt was
made to manufacture the CA marked unit in such a way as to allow a dentist to
work easily and enthusiastically and patient to feel himself/herself
comfortable in a chair. It is equipped
80, 50 and even 30 years ago all equipment was mechanical or manual. Саstellini is among those companies which helped to make the dentistry while promoting new technologies painless, safe, and accurate as we know it today. Each Castellini unit is fitted with a dozens of certified systems.
Much attention has been given to ergonomics for dentists to enjoy the comfort of their work; to hygiene of the equipment as such and surrounding objects; to imaging necessary for a dentist to have a complete picture of the patient’s oral cavity as well as reliability of all units and systems as a whole.
A modern dental unit is a combined machine encompassing more than one “specialties” related to implantology, endodontology, and diagnostics. Multifunctionality is a trend of out times. But Саstellini looks to the future: it plans to achieve in the immediate future a potential objective that is to provide online support for connected equipment for dentists to rely on such online support and automatic updates once done.

Among the customers of Саstellini and UNIDENT are best state clinics of Russia including the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, Central Bank of Russia, Moscow City Government, Moscow State University of Medicine and Dentistry, Central Scientific and Research Institute for Stomatology. Over 700 units were supplied to state institutions.
Some meetings were determined by the history itself. That was the case with UNIDENT familiarisation with Castellini. By 2004, after 10 years of meritorious work the Russian distributor had been prepared for bringing hi end dental equipment to Russia and CIS. That was an ambitious project. It was planned to supply premium equipment To help to meet the demand of premium dentistry.
In 2004, UNIDENT was granted an exclusive right to supply Castellini units to Russia and CIS, and in 2006, its employees visited Italian production plants and saw how VIP dental equipment is produced. “It was clear at the first visit to the plant: Castellini is uncompromising when it comes to the quality”, said associates.
