In June, The Dentists Supply Company’s online shopping site, tdsc.com, celebrated the second anniversary of its launch to CDA’s full membership.
Now, there’s a new milestone to celebrate: In July, tdsc.com reached $5 million in combined shopper savings driven by the recent expansion to association members in 47 states. The expansion has accelerated real savings for all members, as more shoppers has meant more collective buying power through negotiated pricing. While savings vary by product, practices of every size are consistently seeing an average savings of 20% compared to manufacturers’ suggested retail prices on a broad selection of dental supplies and small equipment.
In these “five lists of five,” we recognize a few of the greatest contributions to the $5M savings milestone.
