Quebec, Canada-based oral appliance maker Panthera Dental has opened a new office in the United States. Located in California, this new office will be the new delivery hub and will offer an easier workflow for all US customers, according to the company.
Effective immediately, US customers will ship their cases to this new address and the Panthera team will be in charge of transportation to Canada. After manufacturing, the cases will be shipped back to US customers.
The new address is:
Panthera Dental USA CORP
22343 La Palma Ave
Yorba Linda, CA 92887
Dental sleep medicine practitioners should update the address in their files for Panthera Dental and send packages to this new address.
Panthera says this change will have no impact on standard delivery or processing times.

During COVID-19, Panthera Dental participated in an assistance project for various Quebec hospitals and delivered more than 250,000 face shields. The project has allowed the company and its partners to sustain employment for more than 100 families during this difficult period. In addition to 250,000 face shields supplied to hospitals, Panthera will have donated more than 3,000 face shields to nonprofit organizations.
CEO Robichaud says, “The main goal of this project was to sustain as many jobs as possible in our great Panthera family. Our new headquarters’ factory, which is normally 100% automated, completely transformed itself to establish visor disinfection and assembly stations in order to respond to the urgent need for medical supplies. One thing is certain: Mission accomplished for our team and our partners!”
