Members' supply savings adding up through tdsc.com

The Dentists Supply Company is now available in 47 states, offering consistent and competitive supply pricing to more than 100,000 members of organized dentistry. More shoppers means more savings for practices of every size. And association members are enthusiastically sharing how consistent supply pricing, 24/7 online shopping convenience and authorized product sourcing have made tdsc.com one of their favorite ways to shop.

Shoppers continue to see 20% average savings compared to suggested retail prices.* What’s even more telling is the difference between tdsc.com prices and what many have been paying other suppliers.

David M. Delaney, DMD, compared tdsc.com prices to what he was paying for his usual supplies and found significant savings for his Albany, New York, practice. “I estimated that I’ll save roughly $10,000 a year by switching to TDSC. I wish we had this program years ago!” he said.

The Alabama-based endodontic practice of Deborah Bishop, DDS, recently saved $135 on a $485 supply order. “We scored again,” she told TDSC. “If we use the number of $130 per week, we have the potential of saving $7,155 a year. That is huge!”

Other dentists nationwide have also quickly discovered the benefits of tdsc.com and are exercising more control over their overhead expenses. In addition, streamlined shopping gives them more time and money to spend on other areas of practice.

Richard Barnes, DDS, of Visalia, Calif., says his RDA orders their practice supplies from tdsc.com and in doing so saves the practice over $1,000 monthly. And Cody Calderwood, DDS, of Park City, Utah, says shopping with TDSC has allowed him to shave his overhead expenses substantially. “With those savings, I’ve been able to do some remodeling and upgrades to my office,” he said.

Along with saving substantially, dentists can be confident that every product on the site is from a trusted, authorized source. “My supplies went from 5% of my overhead to 3.3%,” said Lindsay Compton, DDS, of Arvada, Colorado. “I'm thrilled that I can use name-brand materials, still save money and not sacrifice quality.”

Jennifer Thompson, DDS, of Farmington, New Mexico, is one of the many shoppers who have taken advantage of TDSC’s no-cost price comparison service. “We have saved on supply costs consistently since our first tdsc.com order,” Dr. Thompson said. “It’s easy for a practice to send TDSC a list of products they currently order. A representative will then happily return a list of potential cost savings.”
