Curve Dental recently announced a partnership with The Dentists Supply Company, Curve said in a press release.
The Dentists Supply Company (TDSC) is an online company dedicated to providing members of organized dentistry with savings on dental supplies and small equipment. This partnership will offer discounted pricing for TDSC shoppers and Curve customers could save up to 24 percent compared to manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP).
"Both Curve Dental and TDSC are focused on utilizing a more modern technological approach to change older, less efficient industry business models," said Gary Long, chief revenue officer of Curve Dental. "Technology is changing the playing field, enabling dental practices to remain independent if they so choose, no longer having to buy practice management software from their local supplies vendor. The savings in time, responsibilities, and investment are significant and aim to make independent practices stronger and more profitable."
Curve’s practice management software combined with TDSC’s dental supply savings are said to allow independent practices to compete with DSOs by lowering overhead costs. At the same time, this allows practices to utilize better technology to reportedly enhance the patient experience, maximize data security, and improve profitability through cloud technology.
"Curve's dedication to helping dental practices retain their independence is in lockstep with our
mission to share collective buying power that allows our shoppers to reduce overhead and gain
control," said Jim Wiggett, CEO at TDSC. "The combination of Curve and TDSC gives independent dentists buying power and cloud technology at a very affordable cost. This helps them remain competitive with larger practices while delivering an outstanding patient experience."
