With this alliance, Association Gloves & Supplies is expanding our product offerings and reach to association member dentists across the United States.
LANSING, Mich. (PRWEB) October 16, 2018
Association Gloves & Supplies, an affiliate of the Michigan Dental Association, is creating a strategic alliance with The Dentists Supply Company (TDSC). TDSC operates an online shopping experience that offers members of organized dentistry significant savings on a robust catalog of dental supplies through tdsc.com. This strategic alliance enhances the value proposition of both organizations, vastly increasing savings on dental supplies, adding value to participating in organized dentistry and reducing business risk for tens of thousands of member dentists.
“With this alliance, Association Gloves & Supplies is expanding our product offerings and reach to association member dentists across the United States,” said Craig Start, president of Association Gloves & Supplies. “TDSC.com offers a superior e-commerce shopping platform and a growing fulfillment operation that will help dentists save on supplies with the reliability of a powerful supply chain to ensure they get what they need, when they need it, to support them in delivering quality care to their patients.”
Association Gloves & Supplies brings to TDSC a dedicated team of customer service and sales professionals with long-standing, deep relationships with dental associations around the U.S. The combined companies will significantly increase the collective purchasing power of independent dentists and reduce overall costs and business risks.
“Association Gloves & Supplies has been dedicated to creating value for dental association members all around the country, helping dentists compete on a level playing field when purchasing supplies,” said TDSC Interim CEO Jim Wiggett. “TDSC operates with the same mission as Association Gloves, and with our expanded e-commerce platform and catalog of supplies, this alliance will bring double-digit savings to tens of thousands of solo and small group dental practices.”
Formed by the Michigan Dental Association in 2007, Association Gloves was the original disruptor of the traditional dental supply chain. It has delivered substantial savings on the most-used dental supplies to dentists throughout that time. In 11 years, Association Gloves & Supplies has expanded to more than 20 other states. TDSC, formed by the California Dental Association in 2015, began selling dental supplies through tdsc.com to member dentists in 2017. In its first 18 months in operation, it has saved dentists in California more than $2 million on supplies.
Association Gloves & Supplies and TDSC soon will offer over 40,000 crucial supplies to dentists, with plans to expand nationwide over the next 12 months. The savings and reliability enjoyed by dental association members will assist them in providing exceptional care to patients and will add to members’ bottom-line business success, allowing them to invest in the parts of their practice that they love.
Association Gloves & Supplies’ dedicated customer service and sales staff will continue to work from Michigan, while TDSC is headquartered in Sacramento, Calif. TDSC also has a fulfillment center in Washington and soon will be opening another facility in Reno, Nev.
