In November of 2012, Synergy Dental Partners (“Synergy”), a group purchasing organization founded by dental practitioners for independent dental practices, celebrated its second anniversary. In just two years, Synergy has saved over 300 independent dental practices an estimated half million dollars by negotiating discounts with suppliers in the dental field.
“We realize our members are the reason we are here,” said Co-Founder Richard Offutt, DDS, MS. “The key to any group purchasing organization is the participation its members, and we appreciate each of our customers working with us and hope they are receiving the service they expect from our team as well as our partners.”
Membership in Synergy is available to licensed dental practitioners for free and discounts on dental supplies are offered at no additional cost and with no required contract. The company leverages the buying power of its members to negotiate discounts on their behalf with dental suppliers across the country and also negotiates special promotions with its suppliers during the year to benefit its members.
Synergy chooses a single supplier for each product or service set to better manage supplier performance and establish clear accountability, and Synergy members on average save between 17 percent and 60 percent on dental supplies when they purchase from Synergy’s dental supply partners. Synergy members who order supplies from either Darby Dental Supply or Sonicare will save on average 17 percent; Komet USA offers Synergy members up to 60 percent savings on its entire line of products; BioHorizons provides a meaningful discount to Synergy members; and Dental Card Services helps Synergy members save nearly 30 percent a year on credit card processing, with annual savings ranging from a few hundred dollars to over $30,000.
Synergy is an organization committed to representing the interests of and reflecting the voice of the dental community. It looks forward to introducing new dental supplier partners to its current portfolio in 2013 and continuing to serve its members at the highest level possible.
