SS White Carbide Bur Conversion Program

SS White Carbide Bur Conversion Program

This year has seen a lot of turmoil in the carbide bur market. A couple of German bur companies have tried to enter the US market with burs that most American doctors find cut too slowly. Another manufacturer has cut off a large number of their dealers and now requires their remaining dealers to provide detailed end-user data on all of their customers. The changes will continue over the next few months with the breakup of Brasseler USA and Brasseler Germany and the entry of another direct competitor into the market.

There is one reliable, trusted company who makes burs that American doctors like. SS White invented the dental carbide bur and continues to manufacture all of its own carbides in the USA. We want to assist you in providing these premium quality burs to your doctors at great prices. From November 1 through December 31, we offer the following conversion program to make this transition a win-win for you and your customers.

Special Offers for Doctors Converting to SS White Carbide Burs

· Doctors providing proof of converting from any competitive friction grip bur to SS White will receive:
1 Bulk 100 Pack FREE with the purchase of 3 Bulk 100 Packs or
2 Ten-packs FREE with the purchase of 1 Bulk 100 Pack

· Doctors who don’t provide proof of converting to SS White will receive free goods based upon our 4th Quarter Specials (100+10, 300+40, or 500+70).

· To receive the extra free goods, mail the following documentation to SS White Burs, 1145 Towbin Avenue, Lakewood, NJ 08701 or fax it to 732-905-0987:

A Thank You for Retail Representatives Who Convert their Doctors

    Looks to me like SS White is just using a different method to gather end user transactional data.

    Not only that, they will also gain some competitive advantage seeing “street pricing” of their competitors products.

    This one don’t smell too good to me!

    Reminds me of a Larry Ellison quote.

    Only the paranoid survive.
