Today, through integrated partnerships with customers, RTI develops and delivers restorative solutions to physicians and their patients. 

As a Private Label Original Equipment Manufacturer (PLOEM) partner, RTI provides comprehensive turn-key services for development and product life cycle management to support patients and leading medical technology companies.
