Internet sales channels and the globalisation of dental manufacturing has provided an opportunity for unscrupulous operators to sell poor quality, substandard or even counterfeit and illegal products. It is vitally important that dental professionals make the decision to purchase from reliable sources to ensure expert quality and efficacy of their products.
By purchasing only from reputable suppliers, the end user can be assured of a high quality product that meets all the necessary requirements and that will not endanger the user or the patient, nor risk punitive actions from the courts or regulatory bodies.
We work closely with the BDA, the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), the Oral Health Foundation (OHF) and the Tooth Whitening Information Group (TWIG), and across the dental profession, to encourage the reporting of those selling substandard and illegal products and promote responsible purchasing throughout the dental supply chain.
Take a look at our free guide to spotting a fake – make sure you are not being caught out by counterfeit and substandard equipment, fakes are growing in sophistication – extra vigilance is advised.
Our member companies adhere to a comprehensive Code of practice, have world-class training and a common vision to provide the profession with the best possible service.
