TAMPA, Fla., March 5, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DDS Lab and United Concordia have formed a strategic alliance to offer the national dental carrier's participating dentists with discounted pricing on dental lab products and services, as well as exclusive continuing education opportunities.
"We are pleased to announce this new benefit to our participating dentists," said United Concordia's Vice President of Network Development and Professional Relations Jim Shade. "A dental office's laboratory cost is typically one of its major operating expenses. A United Concordia dentist working with DDS Lab could see an annual savings of 25 percent or more off that cost. This type of savings is critical in an industry that is looking for ways to cut costs, while still offering the highest quality patient care."
DDS Lab is a full-service, NBC-certified dental laboratory based in Tampa, Fla. and El Segundo, Calif., serving dentists nationwide. The laboratory specializes in crown and bridge, dentures, partials, implants, orthodontics, Fierce® mouth guards and CAD/CAM restorations.
"At DDS Lab, we pride ourselves on product quality and seek to partner with dentists to provide their patients the highest quality restorations and appliances," said DDS Lab's President Amy Ceresa. "Our laboratory's robust technical team consists of 27 case consultants including 10 CDTs in all specialties to provide expert advice for case planning as well as consultations on complex cases. DDS Lab's restorations and appliances are fabricated only with FDA approved materials to ensure quality and patient safety."
DDS Lab offers its customers a unique online service portal, myDDSLab, which allows practitioners to enter prescriptions, submit photos, track cases and view their account online 24/7.
This alliance could help United Concordia's more 80,000 providers save thousands of dollars every year. DDS Lab and United Concordia will work collaboratively to offer additional benefits, including free continuing education courses at regional events across the country.
