Dental Suppliers

Dental supplies frequently can be purchased locally in larger metropolitan areas from dental supply houses. Advantages of purchasing from local vendors include quick delivery and personalized service. As with many products, however, catalog shopping for dental supplies often can save money. Large mail-order houses frequently offer a greater selection of supplies and instruments as well as lower prices on many of the items offered. For information about dental supply houses, view the member directory on the Dental Trade Alliance website.
