Summary

Summary: 
This UK manufacturer of appliances for orthodontic therapies has recently launched a product new to the market which is a clear brace teeth alignment system. The product is made from lightweight plastic and is virtually invisible, making the alignment system more comfortable to wear than traditional braces, both in terms of looks and fit. The company is currently looking to expand sales of the product overseas and now seeks experienced dental or orthodontic distributors worldwide.

Description

Description: 

This market leading UK manufacturer of a range of orthodontic solutions is a registered orthodontic laboratory offering comprehensive services from their state of the art purpose built facility.

With over forty years of experience, the company produces a full range of appliances for all types of orthodontic therapies for the specialist orthodontist and the general dental practitioner. Alongside these services, it also operates a range of high quality, sophisticated 3D digital scanning and model technology.

The technical team of this Dental Appliance Manufacturers Audit Scheme (DAMAS)-accredited laboratory have a wealth of experience and are all fully trained, qualified, and General Dental Council (GDC) registered.

Serving a significant number of the dental surgeries throughout the UK, the company has been successful launching its clear brace teeth alignment system into the market.

Almost invisible, the alignment system is made from lightweight plastic and is extremely easy to wear. With treatment normally lasting between six and twelve months and the brace needing only to be removed temporarily for eating, brushing and flossing, it offers patients a comfortable solution for teeth alignment both in terms of fitting and the confidence to wear as compared to more traditional braces.

The company has built a solid customer base in the UK and with a small amount of trade abroad, it is now in a position to develop this product into overseas markets in order to expand the company.

It therefore seeks distributors in the dental, orthodontic, dental laboratory or dental health sectors worldwide, to promote the product and increase its presence internationally.
