uniqueness of Almore’s product line began in 1946 with the
introduction of the Binocular Headband Loupe by Dr. Arne
Lauritzen and company founder Alvin Moore. Two examples of
Almore’s extensive list of trademark products are the Richwil
Crown & Bridge Remover and the Endo Ring. The Richwil
Crown & Bridge Remover was conceived by William Oliva and Dr.
Richard Oliva of the University of California Los Angeles.
The Richwil Crown & Bridge Remover was introduced to the dental
industry in 1979 and continues to this day to be one of our
outstanding products. The following year Dr. Hal Oien and
Dr. James Johnsen presented Almore with an idea for a
revolutionary endodontic aid. In 1981 the Endo Ring was
introduced to the dental community. Currently, the Endo
Ring remains as one of the company’s most popular and reputable
products. Almore offers an assortment of products ranging
from a preferred line of laboratory waxers, waxes, composite
instruments, articulating film, operatory products, endodontic
products, and registration material. The company is also a
proud distributor of Dentatus, Danville, Jordco, Roydent,
Hager, Terrapin, Java Crowns, Citrus-Mate,
G.E. Rudischauser, and Blazer.
Almore is located in Beaverton, Oregon just outside of Portland.
The facility is less than 10 miles from Alvin Moore’s original
tool shop and the company’s place of origin. Today, Almore
continues to define itself by responsive service, quality
products, and innovative ideas.
