I n business, true listening is to hear the needs of your clients, understand them and to take action to make sure these are met. At Dental Innovations, we seek to embody this notion and it is the reason we have over 50 business services our members can harness to enhance their practice success.

Since our inception in 1997, we have continued to evolve our range of services – in response to the changing dental industry – to assist our practice owner members. Recently we have brought on several new exciting supply partners to our suite of services.

Dental Innovations is pleased to announce our latest partner supplier: Adam Dental.

Adam Dental’s 4,300 products are now available on the Dental Innovations ordering portal with exclusive pricing for our members. Adam’s vision is to provide dental professionals with everyday products at the lowest prices. Our members now have access to the full range of Adam Dental’s products along with our other supplier partners including Dentsply Sirona, Dentavision, Gunz Dental, Ark Health, Ivoclar Vivadent, SDI, Erskine and Trolldental. Dental practices can order from all these supply companies in a single order, resulting in great savings of time and expenditure.

Dental Innovations has also responded to the growing concerns of plastic waste in dental practices. This concern on plastic waste has been expressed not only by practice owners, but also patients who are conscious of this issue and are reaching out to dentists – asking how they are dealing with the volume of plastic waste created in their dental practices.

That is why Dental Innovations brought on another supply partner – The Humble Co, creators of the world’s most sold bamboo toothbrush.

We met with The Humble Co at IDS Cologne to get our members access to their range of environmentally friendly dental hygiene products inclusive of bamboo toothbrushes, bamboo interdental brushes, toothpaste, floss picks, dental floss, mouthwash, tongue cleaners, chewing gum, cotton swabs and other accessories. These are all eco-friendly products and their packaging is made of recycled materials. The toothpastes contain fluoride are vegan friendly, cruelty free and FDA approved. Dental Innovations members can access the Humble products via our online ordering portal at exclusive DI pricing.

To assist our practice owner members in other areas of their practice business, we have also recently introduced two new partners: Channel D and JB Hi-Fi.

Dental Innovations members can now access the Channel: D system at exclusive DI-only pricing. This is a revolutionary waiting room video system designed to motivate your patients and grow your practice. Channel D creates bite-sized videos designed to create interest by prompting patients to ask questions about the treatments you provide. Subscribers can select from ready-to-play videos and request customized videos that incorporate your team’s photos, names and logo. Each video comes with communication tips that will give your team the ability to communicate consistently and effectively with patients about that video topic. When integrated with your team, you will see an increase in better treatment decisions and more treatment acceptance.

Dental Innovations has also successfully established an agreement with our new partner: JB Hi-Fi Solutions. They offer our members access to commercial level pricing across their range of electrical and consumer goods. As a result, our member dental practices can now access commercial prices on over 6,000 consumer electronic and whitegoods products via JB Commercial.

Over the last 20 years the dental industry has changed substantially. Dental Innovations has always researched and found solutions for independent dentists to keep their competitive advantage and thrive in a changing environment. This is achieved by dentists working together under the Dental Innovations Network. In order to ensure we maintain this competitive edge; we will continue to focus our purchasing power of over 650 member practices and onboard new services that will greatly benefit our members.

It is our members who drive our innovation this helps us create a supportive environment that they can depend on.

As Dental Innovations continues to grow so will our member benefits. If you would like to be part of a proactive network of practice owners working together to make their practice more profitable – simply call me on 0401 336 412 or 03 9698 0200 or email me at kawan@dentalinnovations.
