Supply Clinic Announces Expanded 2019 Online Catalogue
Supply Clinic, the online marketplace for dental supplies, announced the addition of a dozen new product lines to their customer offering leading into 2019. 3M Oral Care, Kerr, GC America, DMG America, and Parkell's products are now available for purchase.
As customers switch to online purchasing in ever-increasing numbers, manufacturers and distributors are following suit. "The dental supply industry is a prime example where improved customer experience, transparent pricing and trusted selection online will improve business for dentists serving patients, and shift a traditional distribution model to online channels like Supply Clinic," explained Mr. John Rossman, former Director of Merchant Integration at Amazon.
Healthcare supply chain experts have already taken notice. "We take for granted that online shopping occurs in every aspect of our personal lives, so the sea change in business-to-business shopping is inevitable. The need to be waited on by salespeople is fast becoming the exception," expounded Mr. Alan Weinstein, former Founder & CEO of Premier, Inc., one of the largest hospital supply group purchasing organisations.
And Supply Clinic, which prioritises patient safety and protects against the sale of gray-market materials, is well-positioned in this growing market. "Working with Supply Clinic introduces dentists to optimized pricing to supply an efficient and effective office. And most importantly, Supply Clinic protects against gray market materials that could erode confidence in patient outcomes," said Dr. Lyndon Cooper, DDS, PhD, Associate Dean for Research at UIC College of Dentistry and former president of American College of Prosthodontists.
"Now more than ever, distributors and manufacturers must collaborate to ensure a secure supply chain," said Mr. Shawn Gregg, 3M, Director of Strategic Accounts and Channel. "We are all responsible for preserving the integrity of our industry and protecting patients."
Supply Clinic continues to deliver more value to sellers and dentists alike, as it grows and offers more tools for managing the purchase of supplies.
