A directory filled with trusted suppliers of dental products

When you shop for supplies and products for your dental business, what do you look for in a supplier that you choose to do business with?

Like many, perhaps you look for the best deal and most competitively priced suppliers.

In truth, finding reasonably priced equipment is an important factor to keeping business costs down, and good deals are usually a no-brainer, right? But you should always exercise caution! When a good deal is too good to be true, like the old adage goes, then it usually is.

There are also many reasons why you should only choose a reputable supplier to do business with. As a dental business owner, when you purchase products and materials for your practice, you will want to rest assured that the products you are buying and using daily are from a reliable and a safe means of supply.

Making this kind of business decision can mean the difference between a healthy and safe working practice for your staff and patients or a potential legal case later down the road. And in some cases, even losing your GDC registration!

Unreliable sources

Every year thousands of counterfeit products that look nearly identical to the original counterparts they are trying to copy flood the dental market. Counterfeit items are usually supplied from unscrupulous and unreliable sources, and they are often made using substandard and poor materials that are neither reliable or safe to use.

The potential risks involved in using these kinds of cheap counterfeit products can far exceed the initial saving of what you might class as a ‘bargain’.

There are hundreds of dental suppliers servicing the UK market from both home and overseas, which means picking a reliable and trustworthy supplier who can provide the standards and quality that dental professionals need is difficult.

The ideal solution lies in having the ability to browse a range of products and services from trusted suppliers who adhere to a comprehensive professional code of practice*, bespoke training, and a common vision. A set of standards that ensures that the dental team can have confidence in both the quality and provenance of purchases.
