Emdin International is privately owned and family operated. We were founded in 1986 by Dinesh Tandon who had a dream of opening his own manufacturing facility to create a product that was cutting edge to the industry.

Emdin began out of Dinesh's garage where he focused on research and development. He developed a universal phosphate-bonded casting investment for crown and bridge, pressable and implant applications. Starvest was born and has since been our flagship product.

Dinesh Tandon has over 40 years experience working in the dental laboratory field and is still deeply involved in sales, technical support, and research and development. Emdin International also manufactures products to serve the orthodontic, jewelry, and tooling industries.


We at Emdin pride ourselves in knowing that our products will meet the needs of our customers. Manufacturing high quality products for the dental laboratory industry allows us to offer materials that can be trusted. We are proud that 100% of our raw materials come from the United States of America and our entire line of products is manufactured in California.


It's our motto. We live by this saying on a daily basis in all aspects of our business.
  • Communication: It is very important to our company to offer exceptional customer service and technical support. A sales representative is always here to help you during business hours. If you have any questions or concerns after business hours please do not hesitate to send us a message here.

  • Quality Assurance: We test every batch to ensure batch-to-batch consistency. Technicians will not have to worry about spending more time and money to rework a project. Batches are only sent to our customers once they have been tested to meet industry standards.
