July 3rd, 2018: Let’s start this week with some positive news – we are happy to announce that Ecodent, a dental laboratory, based in the United States, is now part of the Dentacoin partner network.
About Ecodent Dental Laboratory
Ecodent was established in 2014 and is a full-service dental laboratory, located in Brooklyn, NY at a convenient location for all dental practices, throughout all five boroughs and is ready to service dental practitioners nationwide.
“Every denture, bridge, crown and implant that you place represents your practice. Ecodent understands that when your reputation is on the line, you want the best.”
Ecodent manufactures or customizes a variety of products to assist in the provision of oral health care by a licensed dentist. These products include crowns, bridges, dentures and other dental products. Ecodent’s technicians follow a prescription from a licensed dentist when manufacturing these items, which include prosthetic devices (such as denture teeth and implants) and therapeutic devices (such as orthodontic devices).
Fully aware of the higher efficiency and quality which new technology brings, Ecodent’s management decided to start utilizing Dentacoin as a means of payment for their services! Now all US-based dentists in the Dentacoin network will be able to pay for clinically proven and time-tested restorative options with DCN!
Closing the Currency Cycle
Partnering with Ecodent is another step forward towards our goal to bring the needed efficiencies in all areas of the dental industry. Along with Arklign, CA, Ecodent becomes the second US-based laboratory – one available at each coast to all dental practices operating nationwide. Read more about our partnership with Arklign here:
Efficiently connecting dentists, patients, suppliers, dental labs, service agencies within the dental industry through a common industry-specific currency (Dentacoin) and various mutually beneficial applications, is the essence of the Dentacoin concept. Patients can earn DCN through the Dentacoin tools (DentaVox, Trusted Reviews, Dentacare) or buy it on exchange platforms and then pay with it for dental services at clinics in 14 countries (check all Dentacoin partners here).
Dentists, on the other hand, can use the DCN received from payments or earned through the Dentacoin tools to pay for dental restorations, dental supplies, services. The currency cycle is closed while simultaneously network participants take advantage of simplified, highly automated, much cheaper and secure payments. This newly-created network triggers powerful network effects meaning that each new participant increases the value of the network for all existing participants. And here lies the greatest power of Dentacoin.
