Dental practitioners have long been trying to find ways to save money on the dental supplies they purchase most. The reality is, pricing is very fragmented and dentists do not receive uniform pricing across the industry, but it does not have to be that way moving forward. Meet Synergy Dental Partners (“Synergy”). The model is simple and works by leveraging the buying power of its members to negotiate discounts on their behalf with dental suppliers across the country.
The advantages of joining a GPO like Synergy are not only evident in the dollars saved – Synergy has saved members in all 50 states and Washington D.C. an estimated eight million dollars since 2010 – but also in the time saved searching for quality dental supplies, as well as the piece of mind knowing that Synergy is helping their practice procure supplies as profitably as possible.
Synergy is not a third party distributor and does not inventory or ship dental supplies. The Company negotiates contracts with suppliers so that its members can pay the same or less than what larger group practices pay for the same supplies, and members order through Synergy’s dental supply partners.
Synergy members on average save between 17 percent and 60 percent on dental supplies when they purchase from Synergy’s dental supply partners. Synergy also negotiates special promotions with its suppliers during the year tobenefit its members.
