Claude D. Berthoin

Claude Berthoin is Executive Chairman of The Denterprise Group, a diverse array of medical device importers and distributors that serve the dental industry globally.

A native of France who has made America his home for the past forty years, Claude first ventured into the FDA 510(k) Premarket Notification program in 1990, registering his own products. That exposure led to device manufacturers across Europe, Asia, and the Americas seeking help with the introduction of new medical and dental products into the U.S., Canada, and Europe.

Claude is married with two children. His hobbies center on family, work and travel, with a particular passion for exploring his native Europe each summer.
