Orthodontist supplies. Braces. Enough said? As a matter of fact, no. While the wire-and-brackets braces system remains a mainstay of orthodontic practices, technology has advanced and diversified to the point that an orthodontist may expect to deal with multiple distributors just to stay on top of the latest and best products.
As you're searching for the best deals on the highest quality orthodontist supplies, keep the following cost saving, quality enhancing measures in mind:
1. Keep a healthy supply of basic orthodontic hardware on hand at all times.
2. Bring advanced orthodontic products manufacturers into your distributor list as needed - or as you can afford them.
3. Round out your orthodontist supplies with the right adhesives, instruments, and accessories.
Get the nuts, bolts and brackets of orthodontic appliancesBecause orthodontic appliances are routinely custom-fitted to each individual's mouth, you'll need to have plenty of the building blocks - brackets, wires, spacers, and attachments - on hand. Having the right supplies ready means that you can go right to work prepping your patient's teeth while any specialty products you might require later are on order.
Track down high-end orthodontic equipmentRapid advances in orthodontics materials and technology mean that you need a savvy supplier to stay on top of the latest products. You can either search out specific technologies or supplies and ask your orthodontics products distributor to carry them - if they don't already - or search for a distributor that already carries them.
Search out miscellaneous orthodontics equipmentThere's more to orthodontist supplies than braces and brackets. Get everything else you need - from orthodontic instruments to disposable sanitary supplies to adhesives - by dealing with comprehensive suppliers that distribute products aimed at covering any general or niche orthodontist products you may need.
- You can save money on rarely used orthodontic supplies, like specialty braces, by ordering them only as needed. Your overhead will be lower, you'll have less waste and you'll be able to ensure that your patients get the most up-to-date technology possible when you do place an order.
