What is Elite?
Elite Dental Alliance is a membership organization built for the independent dental practice. By leveraging more than 75 years of dental experience and over $1.5 billion in collective production, ELITE has created a marketplace of member-exclusive offers, all designed to take the guesswork and stress out of running a productive dental practice.
Why join ELITE?
Dental Service Organizations (DSOs) with deep pockets are acquiring market share at an alarming rate and putting increased pressure on independent practices. In the face of this movement, independent practices need to band together and fight back. ELITE provides you a way to do this: with group purchasing power. Why should all the discounts be reserved for the large, corporate accounts? ELITE members receive unlimted access to:
- Corporate-level pricing from ELITE vendors
- Access to special offers from ELITE vendors
- Dedicated point of contact from each vendor for expedited service
- Purchase and decision-making advice from ELITE member advocates
What's in it for me?
- Reduced Practice Overhead
- Increased New Patient Flow
- Improved Patient Retention
- Optimized Operations
- More Time Spent with Patients
- Maximized Practice Profitability
Am I allowed to purchase from vendors that are not in the ELITE member network?
As an ELITE member, you still practice independently and have no obligation to purchase from any vendor. You choose which vendors you want to purchase from, regardless if they are an ELITE vendor. However, we do encourage our members to use our vendors as often as they can in order to maximize their membership, and in turn, their profitability.
How do I access the ELITE member discounts and other benefits?
You can get a quick review of the participating vendors without logging in by VIEWING OUR VENDOR LIST HERE, but to fully understand the breadth of the benefits that ELITE offers, you need to become a member by joining here. Once you are a member, you will have unlimited access to the member portal, which is where you will see the discounts and products offered by our vendors. Inside the member portal, you will also find the ELITE-dedicated contact information for each vendor so you can access our deals at your convenience.
Will the way I order and receive supplies change when I am an ELITE member?
Unless specifically requested by the vendor, there will be no change in the way you normally order and receive supplies. ELITE is simply the facilitator of the marketplace, not a vendor, so your purchasing processes will most likely stay the same.
