Your Team

Synergy is unique in that it was founded by dental practitioners like you.

Our impetus for starting a GPO over a decade ago came from seeing smaller practices like ours struggle during the sluggish economy. Our efforts to grow Synergy, by bringing in more members and more vendor partners and by offering a diverse range of educational and informational resources, is a result of our mission to preserve and empower independent dental practices. We understand firsthand the challenges clinicians face in running an independent practice and we’re committed to helping.
