3M and Synergy Preferred Brands

By on October 15, 2018 in Dental Supply

Over the last several months, Synergy and 3M have been working closely to develop a new Preferred Brands program that benefits our members.

What does this mean to you?

  • Effective November 1, 2018, the current Preferred Brands program with 3M is changing.
  • Until October 31, 2018, Synergy members can continue to purchase 3M products through Darby at the current prices.
  • After November 1st, the current program will be replaced with an annual cash rebate program where our members can receive a cash rebate of up to 5% on their 3M purchases. Members can order through any authorized 3M distributor and receive the cash rebate.
  • Members will continue to receive Synergy discounted pricing on 3M products purchased through Darby. Price increases on 3M items after November 1,2018 will be offset by both the cash rebate and access to free goods offers.
  • Free goods are back. Our members will have access to free goods offers from 3M as well as receive special promotions designed specifically for Synergy.
  • Members may also receive a growth rebate if overall Synergy member purchases increase year over year. In other words, the more 3M our members use, the greater the rebate you may receive.
  • In order to be eligible, members may not participate in any other 3M pricing/rebate programs.

How is this different than before?

  • Members were required to purchase 3M products through Darby Dental Supply if they wished to participate in Preferred Brands.  Now, members can purchase 3M products Darby or another authorized 3M distributor. Members will receive the cash rebate regardless.
  • Members ordering 3M products through Darby will continue to receive the savings we negotiated directly with Darby.  3M is no longer offering its direct-from-the-manufacturer discounts. You will receive the cash rebate instead.
  • Members may also receive a growth rebate if overall Synergy member purchases increase year over year. In other words, the more 3M our members use, the greater the rebate you may receive.

How do you participate?

  • Order 3M products through Darby Dental Supply. You may also order from any other authorized 3M distributor. To order 3M products through Darby, please contact the Synergy team at Darby:

Synergy is committed to helping preserve the independent dental practitioner, and we are very excited about some of these changes to our Preferred Brands program with 3M. We hope you are as well.
