Synergy Dental Partners harnesses the power of group purchasing to give independent dental practices access to the best prices for supplies and services
Obtaining a reasonable price for supplies and services is tough as a single, private practitioner,” said Levy Do, DDS, who knows that “corporate dental companies are paying much less because of their buying power.” Like Dr. Do, you and your staff might lack the time, energy, and patience to juggle between vendors and make sure you’re getting the best possible prices for your supplies and services. How great would it be if someone could do that for you, without ever sacrificing quality for price?
Founded by dentists in 2010, Synergy Dental Partners is a group purchasing organization that helps independent dental practitioners save money on the products and services they use every day. Members who join Synergy have access to the same name-brand supplies and services they already use—but at discounts that are applied automatically each time members purchase from a Synergy vendor partner.
Synergy understands that independent practices lack access to the pricing and savings available to large group practices, corporate dentistry, and DSOs. To level the playing field, Synergy leverages group purchasing power to save costs for dental practices without sacrificing their independence. In doing so, Synergy says they have helped thousands of members nationwide save millions of dollars, and they continually negotiate discounts with new vendors to expand savings opportunities.
“Synergy allowed me to leverage the power of group buying, saving money and lowering overhead,” Dr. Do told DPS in this March 2021 product review. “The vendors are great, and I’ve been able to get preferred pricing without being in a corporation.” Noticing a “dramatic reduction in the cost of my supplies” after partnering with Synergy, Dr. Thomas Farley emphasized, “These are the same brand-name dental supplies at a negotiated discount price—not off-brand. Why would anyone want to pay full price for the same exact product they’re currently using?”
“I routinely save 17% to 20% on my dental supplies,” shared Dr. Farley, and Gregory Camp, DMD, said, “It has allowed me very realized savings on supplies compared with ordering from other vendors.” For Kenneth Schweizer, DDS, Synergy helps his practice “get better pricing and lower overhead,” and Dr. Mark Larsen appreciates the “group buying power for discounts on supplies.” Discounts from using Synergy’s services helped Dr. Larry Bateman reduce his supply budget by about 5% to 7%, he said, while Stan Michalski, DDS, shared, “They simply save you money on the same products you normally purchase.” Hoping to improve upon “high prices and inconsistent customer service for supplies,” Dr. Murtuza ShahKhan said, “Synergy has saved me thousands on supplies, and the service I receive from them and their partners is top-notch. I order the same supplies at a much lower cost.” Antoine Sayegh, DDS, agreed that Synergy “provides the best discounts on quality products.”

Convenience & Customer Service
Stating that it’s “so easy to sign up” to use Synergy Dental Partners, Dr. Do said, “I use only Synergy vendors because of the savings and overall quality.” Office Manager Tammy Coleman said, “The discount is applied automatically; I don’t have to remember any codes,” and Dr. Larsen noted, “It’s easy to use and [they are] very helpful.” Appreciating that he does not need to negotiate prices, Dr. Bateman explained, “Synergy has already set this up so all I have to do is order. They helped me a lot with PPE [during the pandemic] and were by my side to get me back up and running.”
Variety of Brands
“Synergy provides products like no other buying group—everything from impression supplies to labs to everyday supplies like masks,” said Dr. Bateman. Frustrated by “having to search multiple vendors for the best price on the same product,” inconsistent pricing, and sales reps with “too much leeway on the products’ actual charge,” Dr. Camp explained that with Synergy he is “able to order from one vendor with confidence that the products are at a good price point.” Dr. Farley remarked, “They continue to expand their affiliate network, which is a big advantage.” Suggested improvements focused on even more savings and vendor affiliations, and Dr. Larsen recommended working with a large lab to get group discount power on lab work.
“A colleague introduced me to Synergy and I can’t thank her enough! We’re able to save money on our orders to help us compete with corporate dentistry,” said Dr. Erik Snell. “Synergy saves; I recommend them without any reservations,” agreed Dr. Shah-Khan, and Dr. Camp said, “We have been a part of Synergy for a few years and are still happy with what they offer.” Stating that Synergy has made his practice more profitable, Dr. Michalski shared, “They deliver as advertised, and I have recommended them many, many times.”
