We are always searching for "practical innovations" that help dental professionals maximize productivity, patient care and profitability. While we source products from manufacturers around the world, and design many products ourselves in response to customer needs and suggestions, many products come to us directly from dentists and staff members who are motivated to improve their practice and profession. We value new, different and superbly useful products as much as we value our customers.
Thank you for considering Practicon, Inc. as a marketing partner or development resource. We appreciate the opportunity to serve both dental customers and dental entrepreneurs by bringing worthy new products to market quickly and easily.
If you have an actual product:
Placing an existing product to Practicon is simple. We evaluate a product sample, pricing and related inventory information. If we can project that your product will be a suitable, practical and profitable addition to our catalog, we will add it to our line as our marketing schedule allows.
We purchase products for resale directly from the manufacturer at wholesale cost, packaged for the end-user. Inventory is held at our facility in Greenville, NC, unless drop-shipping arrangements are made. Marketing, fulfillment and related tasks become the responsibility of Practicon, Inc. We pride ourselves on excellent service to customers AND suppliers. An outstanding product presentation and first-class customer care will support your product. For exceptional products, we can consider special promotions outside of normal marketing channels, such as dedicated flyers and e-mail promotions. Wholesale sales and distribution programs are available through our wholesale division.
Product samples, pricing and inventory information available should be forwarded to Mrs. Page Curtis, VP/Merchandising, or Monty Garrish, Merchandising Coordinator, at:
1112 Sugg Parkway
Greenville, NC 27834 USA
If you have any question concerning new product submissions, you may contact Page Curtis in at email@example.com, or Mr. Monty Garrish at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that as the demand for catalog space becomes more competitive and marketing costs continue to rise, more emphasis will be placed on cooperative advertising allowances, wholesale margin, and other financial factors during product selection and maintenance.
If you have an idea:
If your product is only in the idea stage, the evaluation process is not as straightforward. We advise anyone with an unprotected idea to consider the issue of a non-disclosure agreement prior to any cooperative discussions in order to protect all interested parties. Since the possibility exists that we may already be considering a similar idea, we are not able to review unsolicited new product ideas without a suitably specific, non-disclosure agreement. Please click here to print a non-disclosure agreement with instructions.
Information related to product ideas and non-disclosure agreements should be forwarded to Mr. Brad Griffin, VP/Product Development and Creative, or Ms. Sherry Steele, Merchandising Analyst, at:
1112 Sugg Parkway
Greenville, NC 27834 USA
Once the non-disclosure issue has been addressed, as time allows we are happy to discuss how to best proceed with respect to manufacturing your product and/or having your product added to the Practicon product line. You may contact Brad Griffin at email@example.com, or Sherry Steele at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Practicon DOES NOT guarantee that a product or idea under discussion will at any time in the future be marketed or sold by Practicon, Inc. after product development is complete. It should be understood that all costs and risks associated with product development and research are the sole responsibility of the submitting party unless a product development and/or marketing agreement, such as a licensing agreement, has been completed by interested parties.
If you want to advertise a product:
If you only wish to advertise a product in Practicon Dental under your own company name, address, and/or contact method, we are willing to discuss this matter with you but we do not actively solicit third party advertising for the Practicon catalog or website. Potential third party advertisements would most likely take the form of large ads that stand alone from the rest of our products. Third party ads would be subject to our approval and marketing schedule. If you have a question about paid or cooperative advertising at Practicon, please contact Mr. Stan Moore, Marketing Analyst, at email@example.com.
Thank you again for considering Practicon as an outlet for your product or idea. We think you will find our ability and eagerness to contribute to your own success unique in the industry. We look forward to working and growing with you in the future.
