“We are very much looking forward to starting this exciting new chapter for our customers”, said CEO Alon Schwartz. “While a commitment to saving dentists money with daily deals remains our company’s mission, we are thrilled to now be able to offer a variety of products on an ongoing basis – at everyday low prices – through the online catalog. Now our customers can experience us as a one-stop dental supply shop instead of just another step in their purchasing process.”
