Why Outsourcing Dental Lab Work Overseas is a Bad Idea – Perth Dental Lab
Despite the several advantages that outsourcing can provide dentists, such as quick work and cost-effective pricing, outsourcing foreign dental lab work is, in fact, a deal that, in the end, does more harm than good. Here at PMC – Perth Dental Lab, we are committed to delivering high-quality work to our customers, which include
dentists. Part of this commitment involves gathering the right information in order to make sure that you are safe and informed. In this article, we will dispel the myths that outsourcing is legitimate, and give you
a few reasons why you should seriously consider finding a local dental lab.
Unknown Materials Used
Outsourcing has grown widely due to its inherently cheap cost. Many dentists have bought into
the outsourcing scheme, as it reduces costs and increases profits. Outsourced dental products also arrive timeously, which only adds to the list of potential positives that dentists see. While these seem like very appealing advantages,
they do not outweigh the cost of outsourced dental work from foreign countries. With outsourced dental products, not only is the source completely unknown, but the materials used in the product are not listed as well. At the current moment, there are no laws that can encourage dental labs to clarify where their products or materials come from. This is a great cost to the civilian who make use of the product because, very soon after implanting a crown, for example, the patient will complain about discomfort.
Durability of Products
Another disadvantage of outsourcing is the durability of outsourced products. Considering the inexpensive material used to create the dental work, your customer is more than likely bound to come in and require a new tooth, or a
replacement crown. This becomes a problem because the customer trusts their dentist to do their job correctly the first time around, not the second. Outsourcing work delegitimises businesses, compromises customer service, and
negates the business’s ability to provide a high-quality service.
Such consequences cannot be taken lightly. Not only is the safety and health of the customer in danger, the quality of your services will come into question as well. Outsourcing may seem like the swift, inexpensive option required to keep the business going, however, its advantages come at the cost of the valued customer. At PMC – Perth Dental Lab, all our products are designed and crafted in-house, ensuring that your dental work is safe to use, durable, and made with high-quality materials.
