Corporate Affiliates


The more savvy dental trade companies know that, whilst s/he may not sign the cheques, a dental nurse can significantly influence the decision to buy or not to buy; or even which of two rival brands to buy. A BADN® survey in 2004, sponsored by 3M Espe, revealed that over a third of dental nurses surveyed had responsibility for inventory and ordering of stock/equipment, and another third for practice health & safety. A further survey in 2010, sponsored by the British Dental Trade Association,  showed that 49% had authority to purchase equipment and 56% authority to purchase consumables for the practice. It’s not so much the name on the cheque which matters, as the name of the person who makes/influences the decision to purchase!
