I’m always chatting with familiar faces but, this week, I was happy to introduce a new friend to the Nifty Thrifty community. Dave Picone was able to come on and tell us about some awesome deals he’s offering through his amazing company.
So, what’s Dave’s company, and what are they all about?
Well, Dave is the Vice President Of Sales at Dental Recycling of North America (DRNA). He and his teams over at DRNA are committed to helping folks like us save 50% off on our Amalgam recycling needs. But they’re not just doing it to help us save money—Dave believes that being environmentally conscious shouldn’t be expensive.
Ain’t that the truth… If you’re anything like me, Amalgam recycling has (unfortunately) been anything but affordable—in fact, it can cost an arm, a leg, and then some. Just think about it: How many times have you had to buy another kit to do Amalgam recycling in your practice?
The truth is that legislation has made things a hassle for many of us. When insurance companies want to take a slice of our pie, it’s a real bummer. Oftentimes, we end up being taken advantage of. On one hand, it means we’re inhibited from serving our patients, improving their lives, and setting them up for success. On the other hand, we’re hurting our good friend Mother Nature when we don’t recycle.
When Dave and I suddenly collided (tune in to hear about how we met!), I was happy to learn about DRNA’s mission. While they’ve been around for over 20 years and are new to our community, they’ve helped many members save money since we crossed paths. And not only is Dave super easy to work with, but he also had a ton of good news to share with our community during this week’s episode alongside an in-depth presentation about DRNA’s products, services, and more.
In Dave’s eyes, making sure you’re stocked up on Amalgam Separator cartridges shouldn’t cost a fortune. It also shouldn’t be difficult, which is why his team over at DRNA has created simplified tutorials on their website and assembled a specialized operations team who can walk you through the process of replacing your cartridges. In fact, I wholeheartedly believe that’s one of the most important services provided by DRNA. Installation is rarely free for any product or service, but Dave and his team over at DRNA make things so simple that any dentist can save some mula by taking installation into their own hands.
It’s important to note that DRNA has its own Amalgam Separators—the BU-10 and BU10-30 Amalgam Separators—which are a little bit “different” than the name-brand Amalgam Separators out there. The BU10 Amalgam Separator is designed for practices with 1-8 chairs. The BU10-30 Amalgam Separator is designed for practices with 9-16 chairs. Each complies with all local, state, and federal regulations.
Even better? If you don’t yet have a unit, just started your dental practice, or you’re just tired of switching out cartridges all the time then you can switch to the BU-10 for free—so long as you oblige to a “service agreement.” That means there’s an annual service that’ll be around $500 but, for the Nifty Thrifty community, it’s a price that is totally flexible. Alternatively, you can choose to stick with your current model in lieu of the BU-10 and just purchase Amalgam Separator Cartridges from DRNA.
So, what’re you waiting for? Tune in to watch Dave walk us through a presentation where he shares some data about the Amalgam Separator market, how DRNA is beating their competitors to save dentists money, what sort of products and/or services they’re offering, and more.
