Want to Expand the Services Your Dental Lab Offers? Consider a Reliable Outsourcing Partner!

Is your small and private dental lab struggling to retain clients because you think you have enough “superheroes” on your team to fulfill large orders quickly? Or, do you only supply crowns, and lack the capabilities to produce removables for your demanding clientele base? If your intent as a small business owner is to dig yourself an early grave and forgo any help, keep going! But, if you would rather have a larger team of superhero dental technicians help you keep your business thriving, you should consider a reliable dental lab outsourcing partner.

Why should you outsource dental lab work?

First and foremost, if you choose to outsource, that doesn’t mean you are “giving up” on your business. In other words, it doesn’t mean you’ve failed to do everything you could to meet the demands of your clients; it means you are doing what you can to keep your dental lab from going under.

And, this is especially true if you love the industry. If you look at being a dental lab technician as your true calling in life, and thus owning a business that allows you to do what you love as your pride and joy, then outsourcing can be ideal. After all, we know that many business owners (no matter what industry they are in) look at what they have established as their “baby,” and it would be awful to see it taken away from them.

Some of the benefits of choosing a partner can include:

Just because we outsource our dental lab work to China, that doesn’t mean the quality is any less superior.

As we mentioned above, you should choose a reliable outsourcing partner. And, as a company that has established itself to have both an awesome in-house team here in the U.S., and a great team in China, you can rest assured that our products are of a consistent quality no matter where they are manufactured.

How is Outsourcing Dental Lab Work a Winning Strategy?

In fact, outsourcing some of your dental lab work can be the winning business strategy you need to keep your turnaround times fast, and your services and products as affordable as ever.

Today, many dental labs (as well as companies in general), are already outsourcing things such as payroll and human resources, and there is no doubt that doing so frees up their time. Therefore, there is no reason to think that making the decision to outsource some of your dental lab work will bring you nothing but benefits (especially if you find a company that has years of experience providing these types of services.)

So, how is outsourcing your dental lab work a winning strategy?

If you choose us as your outsourcing partner, you will be gaining the services of a company that consistently produces quality products, offers some of the fastest turnaround times out there, and can help you to continue to offer your products for an affordable price.

In all, having a stable, winning strategy for your dental laboratory should be a high priority as it will help you reap the most success. To learn more about our outsourcing services, please browse through our site, or call us at your earliest convenience.

Maintain Your Competitive Edge by Choosing to Outsource Your Dental Lab Work

These days, all businesses have countless opportunities to increase their profits through outsourcing. There has even been some evidence that outsourcing has aided companies in offering better services and/or products than what they had initially provided internally. Whatever your views are on the topic, there is no denying that it offers several benefits and that many organizations have seen great success from this business venture.

Most companies choose to outsource so that they manufacture products faster, and make it more affordable for their customers and clients to purchase them. However, those who do it correctly and choose the right outsourcing partner will certainly give themselves a competitive edge. For example, dental laboratories (that are often smaller labs or startups) and dentist offices choose to partner and delegate some of their work to us because they want to focus on other aspects of their business. And, not all of them come to us just to help guarantee that they meet the demands of their customers. Some are making the decision to outsource because they want to increase their clientele base and profits. In other words: make themselves appear as the most affordable, reliable, and biggest go-to dental laboratory around.

No matter what industry you are in, it is a competitive one.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there were over 27 million small businesses in operation in 2010. Even though the economy has certainly had its ups and downs over the past several years, new small businesses open up every year, and the total number keeps getting higher. So, with all of these new businesses getting into the game, this means that it will be difficult for current ones to keep the top spot, or even worse, stay afloat.

Choosing us as your dental lab outsourcing partner will keep you on pace.

Our business was once just like that of many of our clients—small. In fact, we had, and still have, an in-house team that prepares products here at out our home office. But, being that we always kept the growth of our business in mind, we made the decision to outsource some of our work, and, eventually, help smaller dental labs and dentists who were looking to outsource some of their work.

Nowadays, we help clients all over the United States by offering a service that always produces products that are affordable, of a consistent quality, and made fast to keep up with demands.

In the end, the benefits our services provide to you can—most likely will—keep you ahead of your competition.

While the thought of outsourcing sounds a bit risky, it actually is not.

How Having the Ability to Outsource Some Dental Lab Work Will Keep Your Clients Happy

Listening to, acknowledging, and meeting the ever-changing desires and needs of clients is something that all successful business owners need to do if they wish to keep their clients on board with them in the long run. However, there are smaller companies and organizations out there that do not always have the tools, time, or manpower to meet all of the demands of their clients.

In our case, we have seen many small to mid-size dental labs close because they do not have the ability to meet all of the requests/demands dentists make.

Therefore, this is truly where choosing to partner with a company that provides comprehensive dental lab outsourcing services (like us here at Cornerstone Direct Wholesale) comes in handy.

Having a company that you can outsource some of your work to not only means that you can fulfill all of a client’s requests, but that you can also satisfy orders faster. What’s more, choosing to outsource work is an affordable option because operational costs at overseas facilities are a great deal less than they are here in the U.S. Lastly, because most overseas facilities have a bigger operation in general, this  means that they will always have professionals on hand and ready to work.

In the end, sometimes it’s a matter of smaller businesses realizing that they do need help to make sure their clients keep paying them every month. While it might appear to be a blow to your ego at first, the ability to keep giving your clients what they need through an affordable outsourcing service will likely be the thing that keeps you in business. And, this is especially true for the busy times of the year (the holidays) where everyone is getting last minute repairs done at their dentist’s office.

How Outsourcing Some of Your Dental Lab Work Can Help Keep You in Business

These days, not only are a lot of people shying away from the opportunity to start their own business, but a lot of businesses—especially smaller ones—are struggling to stay afloat.

As a company that has been offering dental lab outsourcing services for years, we have seen the rise and fall of many smaller dental labs. In fact, we have seen many go out of business because they didn’t have the manpower to meet the demands of their clients, or because they did not make enough money to stay in business. Despite this, there is still hope for smaller dental labs, as a company like us can be exactly what they need to keep things manageable.

An outsourcing partner will give smaller dental labs the opportunity to compete with larger labs.

As we mentioned above, smaller labs often suffer because they do not have enough technicians. So, not only does this mean that they will be unable to fulfill all of the orders that their clients place, but that there is a strong chance the client will migrate to a larger lab. But, if a smaller lab were to outsource some of their orders, they would be able to keep their clients satisfied. Most, if not all, dental labs who outsource deal with reputable overseas labs that have a large staff of technicians.

Multiple technicians mean faster turnaround times.

Due to the number of technicians available at an overseas facility, and the fact that a lot of them operate around-the-clock, orders can be completed faster. Therefore, smaller dental labs will have their products delivered to their clients faster, as well.

Choosing to outsource is inexpensive, but that does not mean the quality ever suffers.

Yes, it is true that outsourcing is inexpensive. Also, one of the reasons that our outsourcing services are affordable is because it does not cost as much to operate overseas as it does here in the U.S. However, that does not mean that the products manufactured are ever made poorly, as one of the things that we take pride in is how well our overseas partner can produce the same quality of products as we do in our U.S. headquarters.

When it all comes down to it, smaller dental labs will find that choosing to outsource will come with many benefits. And, of course, the best benefit for those struggling will be that they will find themselves in business for much longer than they thought.

How Can it be Effective to Outsource Your Dental Lab Work during the Holiday Season?

Once the fall season officially comes to an end, most toy, clothing, and other retail businesses—both online and offline—see an increase in customers due to the holiday season. And, believe it or not, just like retail organizations, a lot of dentists might discover that more patients are scheduling appointments to ensure that they have the perfect holiday profile. This means that patients will finally be getting around to obtaining or replacing porcelain crowns, or getting repairs done on their dentures, etc. In fact, if you suggested any cosmetic dental work in the past, chances are you will find that those patients are finally making their follow-up appointments.

When dentists are scrambling to find an affordable and fast way to meet the demands of these types of patients, working with a dental lab that provides outsourcing services will prove more than ideal.

You might feel pressured to meet the demands of your patients quickly, or they’ll cancel that next six-month appointment.

When you employ a company that offers outsourcing services, most will have a quick turnaround time. This is because most overseas facilities have a bigger operation and are open around the clock. What’s more, a company, such as ours, has a technician available to converse with clients when needed. So, if you want to outsource, but still want to be involved, choose a company that gives the option to speak to their overseas CDT.

Running low on time and funds? Choosing to outsource is typically more affordable.

Fast and affordable – two words that people often like to hear together, regarding any service they are buying. And, there is no denying that outsourcing dental lab work are exactly these two things. But, how, you ask? Well, when you outsource, it is likely because you have a high volume of products that you need to order. With us, the more you order, and the more precise your order is, the more affordable it will be to use our services.

If you would like to hear more about outsourcing dental lab work, how it is more affordable and fast compared to other options, or how our dental lab in China operates, please do not hesitate to reach out to us during the holidays, at any time.
