We've been amazed at the response
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 11, 2007
Since Carson Dental's online store opened June 1, 2007, hundreds of dentists have switched to online ordering for all their dental supply needs. "We've been amazed at the response," says Charlie Holley, CEO, Carson Dental. "Dentists are thanking us for increasing their practice's profitability at absolutely no compromise to excellent patient care."
By using Carson Dental online dental supplies, many dental offices can save up to 20% off their average monthly dental supply order. That's about $9,600 a year for most practices, based on figures from the American Dental Association.
Kristina Wiley, DDS, is one of several hundred dentists who switched to Carson Dental for her Sacramento, California, area practice. "Using Carson Dental saves me time and money--I know with their 105% price guarantee, I'm getting absolutely the best price. Plus online ordering is a snap--a lot better than flipping through catalogs and negotiating with reps."
Like Dr. Wiley's practice has discovered, ordering dental supplies online eliminates a lot of the hidden costs from the traditional dental supply chain, such as:
· Negotiating better prices
· Documenting and clarifying orders
· Transmitting orders to your dental supplier or suppliers
· Meeting with a dental sales rep
· Double checking invoices for proper pricing
· Shipping charges
This seemingly innocuous back-office business costs the average dental office about 6.2% of their annual gross revenue, according to figures from the American Dental Association. "That's just the supplies themselves--the hard costs. The actual cost of your dental supply chain is increased on average by 20 to 30% because of the hidden costs such as those above," says Holley.
"The Internet has democratized the dental supply business like almost every other business it has touched. Now, using online ordering, several steps in the dental supply chain can be mitigated or eliminated," says Holley. "And that means dentists can now take advantage of a single accurate, industry-wide record of relevant medical and dental products, including the best prices and most popular products nationwide, all visible online at http://www.CarsonDental.com."
