Synergy is the nation’s largest savings organization for independent dentists. As a membership-only dental group purchasing organization (GPO), we help you reduce dental equipment costs. Synergy helps leverage the collective buying power of independent dentists for better cost control. Once you join our group, you can choose from our exclusive network of dental equipment suppliers and pay lower prices for your equipment.
We carefully select our dental equipment partners based on our experience as dentists and use savvy skills to negotiate the lowest prices. We’ve evaluated and identified the most qualified dental equipment suppliers to help our members get the highest-quality dental equipment for lower prices.
Dental Equipment Partners
Your patients look to you for an efficient, comfortable and effective treatment. The equipment you work with impacts those outcomes. While discounts on dental practice equipment are good for the bottom line, quality is equally important. Investing in high-quality assets delivers benefits like:
- Longer life spans: Durable, reliable equipment resists corrosion and reduces the need for quick replacement or frequent repairs. More precise results: Well-made equipment can allow for better positioning, reduce staff fatigue and produce a more comfortable patient experience.
- Higher productivity: Robust equipment delivers better performance, reducing wait times and boosting efficiency. Practice growth support: Choosing high-quality equipment with additional features allows you to expand the treatment services you offer.
- Better reputation: High-quality equipment leads to improved results, which in turn creates a more favorable reputation with current and potential patients.
- Competitive advantage: The equipment you choose can set your practice apart by providing more accurate diagnoses and clinical outcomes.
- Top talent acquisition: Well-qualified team members base their employment decisions on many factors, including the quality level of your practice equipment.
How Synergy Selects Dental Equipment Partners
Synergy began as a group of independent dentists looking for better ways to control practice spending. Fast forward a decade, and we’ve saved our members an estimated $20 million.
With our personal clinical experience, we know what you’re looking for in a dental equipment partner. As a result, we take a systematic approach to choosing the best ones for our members to save on dental equipment. Some factors we consider include:
- Experience: We develop relationships with those who have industry longevity that provides in-depth knowledge. Our partner network has the experience to stand behind what they sell.
- Value: Synergy makes quality-driven decisions about our partners. Each of them has a reputation for producing reliable equipment to meet the highest quality standards, so our members get a better value for their investments.
- Selection: No two dental practices are alike, and what works for one dentist may not be the right solution for another. We build out our network with companies carrying a wide variety of equipment to meet any dental office need.
