Triodent Ltd. is a New Zealand dental manufacturing company based in Katikati, New Zealand. Founded by Dr. Simon McDonald in 2003, it is a New Zealand-based manufacturer of dental products. Its products are the V3 and V-Ring Sectional Matrix Systems for Class II composite restorations.


The company was formed in 2003 when dentist and inventor Dr Simon McDonald took to market his first product, the Tri-Clip.

The V-Ring Sectional Matrix System, launched in 2005, was the first such system with V-shaped ring tines, which for the first time accommodated the interproximal wedge rather than competing with it for space.[1][2] The system also pioneered the use in dentistry of nickel-titanium alloy for the retainer ring. The next version of the V-Ring was the V3, introduced in 2008. Among other adjustments, this ring used glass fiber reinforced plastic to replace the V-Ring’s stainless steel tines.


The company’s headquarters are in Katikati, New Zealand. The Triodent Group also comprises Triodent Corporation in the United States and Triodent (UK) Ltd based in Europe.


Major products include the original V-Ring Sectional Matrix System and its successor, the V3 Sectional Matrix System; the Griptab indirect restoration handling aid; and the Triotray posterior impression tray. Key components in the V3 system include Triodent Pin-Tweezers, Forceps, Wave-Wedges and V3 Matrices.

Awards and commendations[edit]

Triodent was New Zealand’s fastest-growing manufacturer in 2008.[3] The company was named New Zealand’s best for use of research and development at the New Zealand International Business Awards in 2009[4] and was named top exporter to the United States in its category at the American Chamber of Commerce in New Zealand Export Awards 2009.[5]

The V-Ring system has won numerous product awards, most notably from independent evaluator The Dental Advisor, which named the V-Ring its top sectional matrix system in 2008.[6] It gave the same award to the V3 in 2009,[7] a title it won again in 2010 and 2011.[8]

Triodent has received accolades from a number of different areas including Dental News [9] [10] Dental Compare [11] and Unlimited - Inspiring Business.[12]
