February 13th, 2018: Dentacoin is now accepted means of payment for dental implants made by one of the world’s leading dental implant manufacturers – Bredent. The supplier of Bredent implants – Dentamed – has an online shop for international deliveries with blockchain integrated functionalities and payments available only in Dentacoin! By implementing Dentacoin as the only available currency, the company has utilized numerous benefits, such as a simplified, highly automated and secure payment system and significant cost savings in transactions and logistics.
Bredent is an internationally operating company founded in Germany in 1995, which manufactures highly sophisticated dental implant systems and restorations. One of Bredent´s product – SKY fast & fixed – is established as an etalon for same-day implant restorations. The use of SKY fast & fixed enables dentists to offer their patients extraction, implantation and temporary restoration in a single day and at affordable costs. “We develop and produce optimally matched individual products, system solutions, for example in the implant prosthetic sector, and therapeutic concepts “Made in Germany”. These enable dentists and dental technicians to realize and maintain high quality, cost-effective aesthetic restorations that ensure periodontal hygiene. Our competence and innovative power make us a leading example on the dental market,” explains the Management.
Optimizing the dental supply chain through Blockchain
Bredent has developed a concept for completely digitised implantation workflow, integrating laboratory and dentist, which leads to high efficiency, cost savings and higher dental care quality.
Therefore, the German-based manufacturer considers it consistent to use blockchain technology, starting from logistics and payment transactions. “We are really excited to be part of the Dentacoin project”, shared Wolfgang Lechner, Export Manager at Bredent medical GmbH & Co. KG.
“The high degree of fragmentation inherent in the dental industry makes the use of an industry-specific currency like Dentacoin highly beneficial for all links in the supply chain. It allows for international transactions to be much cheaper, easier, faster and secure,” comments Pavel Georgiev, Sales Manager at Dentamed Shop and adds: “We learnt about Dentacoin and the benefits it offers just when we were discussing the possibilities for international expansion (for the last 7 years Dentamed was focused on the European market, ed.). Dentacoin just made the decision so obvious. Every international merchant within the industry will easily realise that.”
The purchase of Bredent implants is already available for dental professionals at www.dentamedshop.com.
Attracting as partners a leading dental implant manufacturer like Bredent and internationally operating supplier like Dentamed is a huge step forward for Dentacoin towards its goal to bring the needed efficiencies in all areas of the dental industry.
Dentacoin is already implemented as means of payment at seventeen dental clinics around the world (in USA, Australia, UK, Italy, Hungary, Bulgaria, Malaysia, Taiwan, Fiji, India) and more than 10 000 people are actively using the developed tools (Dentacoin Trusted Reviews, DentaVox Research Platform, Dentacare mobile app). Recently Dentacoin also announced strategic partnerships with Arklign, an end-to-end digital dental lab partner located in San Jose, California, and PCP Dental Recruitment, one of the fastest growing dental recruitment agencies in the UK. The currency cycle is closed.
