Why have we set up this buying group?

Here at Samera, we wanted to allow smaller independent dental practices to operate on a level playing field with some of the dental body corporates out there when it comes to buying their consumables or equipment.

What is in it for you?
  • Gaining better buying power
  • Larger discounts
  • Reducing your monthly material bills 

By combining the purchasing power of our growing network of private dentists, we can source assets and supplies at significantly discounted prices. Larger buying groups can obtain far greater discounts than individual practices. Coming together to negotiate collectively greatly elevates the leverage you have to get the best deal possible. 

Join our growing network of practices to benefit from lower prices, save money and grow your practice’s value. 

  • Partner up and work with our community to see significant reductions in cost through combined purchasing power. 
  • Connect with industry-leading manufacturers and suppliers to ensure you purchase the cutting-edge equipment, technology and supplies. 
  • Better deals, negotiated through the Samera Dental Buying Group.
  • Access to advice and guidance on asset finance and dental technology. 

Be a part of a growing buying group, get the best deals on the market, and grow your practice’s profits.

Do you make the purchases for me?

No, you will still purchase equipment, assets and consumables yourself via the DD website. However, your profile will be registered to the Samera Dental Buying Group, which will allow you to benefit from our discounted prices.

How much can I save?

Discount prices will vary between products and over time.

How will this grow the value of my practice?

For every £1 you save, your practice’s value increases by over £6! Your practice’s value is calculated by multiplying your current annual profit by 6. Therefore, if you save £10,000 somewhere, your practice’s value goes up by £60,000! 

For example:

If you save on consumables:£1£1,000£10,000
Your practice value increases by*:£6£6,000£60,000
*Based on an EBITDA multiple of 6x EBITDA

Nothing to be sniffed at, and it’s a no-brainer, no-risk service to you.

To find out how much simply saving money on your consumables can grow the value of your practice, enter your current annual profit and consumables bill. Then just let us know how much you want to cut your consumables bill by and you’ll see how much your practice could be worth when you save. You’ll be surprised how much your value can grow!

How do I get better deals through the Buying Group?

Buying Groups use their numbers as leverage to get better prices since it means they purchase items in large bulks far more often than an independent practice, or even a small dental group.

A Buying Group represents a far greater source of regular business and, so, they often get better prices then others.

The more members of the Buying Group, the better the prices we will be able to negotiate for this exact reason.
