FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: August 20, 2019
Leading dental technology business partners with the nation’s premier dental purchasing platform to provide more than 20,000 dental professionals with cutting-edge digital solutions
ATLANTA—Carestream Dental, the industry leader in digital dentistry, solidified its commitment to private practice dentistry by announcing its partnership with Elite Dental Alliance (ELITE). ELITE represents over 1,500 private practice locations across the U.S. and is widely viewed as the premier purchasing platform for the independent dental practice. This partnership will provide more than 20,000 dental professionals with exclusive pricing, corporate-level service and educational opportunities that empower private practices to improve patient care and fuel practice growth.
Built to relieve the administrative burden that bogs down the private dental practice, the ELITE network is a comprehensive suite of carefully chosen vendors that truly believe in independent dentistry. Each vendor provides products and services to ELITE members at pre-negotiated rates, which removes the guesswork behind purchasing decisions.
Carestream Dental has now joined this elite group of carefully vetted, industry-leading vendors within the ELITE digital marketplace. ELITE members will benefit from special pricing on Carestream Dental’s most popular intraoral equipment, including the CS 3600 intraoral scanner, the RVG 6200 sensors and the CS 1500 intraoral camera.
“Carestream Dental has always understood that oral healthcare professionals choose this field to treat patients and change lives, not negotiate business deals and bulk purchasing agreements,” Ed Shellard, D.M.D., chief dental officer, Carestream Dental, said. “This partnership with ELITE will make the business side of dentistry just a little easier and take the stress out of major buying decisions.”
“As an advocate for the nation’s leading dental professionals, ELITE is constantly identifying ways to help our members compete in an increasingly ‘corporate’ industry,” Brett Pierce, president/CEO, Elite Dental Alliance, said. “I am extremely proud to be aligned with Carestream Dental as it has shown an aggressive commitment to the independent practice. It is not only providing ELITE members with pre-negotiated rates on premium technology, but also corporate-level support and unprecedented educational opportunities.”
