of the elexxion AG

People need goals, dreams and visions. The dreamers and visionaries of today will own the world of tomorrow.

This quote is from an unknown author in the Middle Ages. With these dreams, Martin Klarenaar and Olaf Schäfer founded the company elexxion GmbH. The actual vision was to finally bring lasers to the market that allow dentists to offer their patients exceptionally pleasant treatments.
