Pigs can’t fly
But dentists can
So can your profits



The genesis of Dental Innovations came from independent research conducted by Merv Saultry in the 1990s. He’d been asked by a group of dentists to research commercial practises for the industry, and what he found was shocking. Dentists paid vastly different prices for the same products, and it was clear that smaller independent dental practices paid too much for dental supplies.
Independent dental practices needed access to lower, fairer prices. But they couldn’t achieve this on their own. They needed a way to organise themselves to achieve group buying power, and have a single point of contact with suppliers to negotiate the best rates. The Dental Innovations Network was launched in 1997, and today 600 practice owners save money every day through exclusive discount pricing. They also discover ways to run a better, more profitable dental practice, benefiting from new ideas and best practises shared within the Dental Innovations Network. With the Dental Innovations Network, you and your team can focus on what matters most – your patients and your profession. To this day, we continue to operate as a family business, built on the values of openness, honesty and integrity. Today, 600 Practice owners continue to save money with exclusive discount pricing! With 50 specialised business services and member networking, the Dental Innovations Network assists you to systemise your practice and increase your bottom line profitability. With the Dental Innovations Network, you and your team can focus on what matters most – your patients and your profession. We are a family business established in 1997
