Operating for over 40 years, The Dental Directory provides a range of dental products and services to dentists across the UK including:
With nearly 300 employees across four UK sites, the services are provided through a multi-channel offering comprising field based sales teams and engineers, a dedicated UK call centre, on-line and mail order capability supported by automated picking and packing systems from a central logistical base in Witham, Essex.
Terry Scicluna, Chief Executive of IDH said “Dental Directory is a well-established business delivering clear benefits to its customers and suppliers. The existing management team, which will continue to lead the business, has done a great job of delivering strong business performance and customer service. As part of the Dental Buying Group (“dbg”), we will have a comprehensive integrated consumables and service support structure in the UK for dental practices. We look forward to building on this in the future and further improving the quality of service provided to both Dental Directory & dbg businesses’ customers and members.”
