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 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.

3 Benefits of Outsourcing Your Dental Lab Work with Cornerstone Direct Wholesale

At Cornerstone Direct Wholesale, one of the reasons why we are not afraid to offer our clients a lifetime guarantee is because we stand behind the consistency of our dental restorations.

In fact, if you were to ask us to provide you with three benefits of choosing us as your dental lab outsourcing partner, we would tell you timing, pricing and the fact that our products stay consistent in quality.

Do you want your products faster? Well, this is a good reason to choose us.

Even though we take great pride in our United States office and how fast our turnaround time is, our overseas facilities offer a much faster turnaround time. The products are produced faster because there are more technicians. A lot of technicians also means that their ability to handle multiple orders at once is increased.

When you outsource with us, it will be much more affordable to acquire what you need.

Do not feel apprehensive about choosing our outsourcing services. Even though we market them as being more affordable, our products are never “cheaper” in quality. Overall, operational costs overseas are much cheaper than the United States. And, because of that, we can offer our products at a cheaper price.

And then, of course, there is our great habit of ensuring that all of our clients receive the same consistent products and services.

One of the reasons people shy away from outsourcing anything is because they are fearful of the quality. However, because we have one our CDTs working and constantly monitoring the productivity at our overseas facilities, we can firmly stand behind the consistency of the dental restorations our overseas partners produce. Also, just like we do here in the U.S., our overseas facilities only use the best materials available on the market. So, again, our consistency is maintained, and the work NEVER varies no matter where it is done.

In the end, if you work with us, you will find plenty of benefits. Lastly, you can rest assured that when we made the decision to outsource some dental lab work, we choose the right overseas partners to help us maintain our reputation!
