Our Competitive Advantage

As a niche business, dental handpiece repair businesses have few competitors. The primary competitors of TDC franchisees are the handpiece manufacturers and dental supply companies themselves. However, dental offices appreciate the benefits of:

  • establishing relationships with local service technicians…
  • who can respond immediately to their needs…
  • and save them time and money (in sharp contrast to the manufacturers and supply companies)

  • Fully two-thirds of dental offices do not yet use local handpiece specialists like us. Alternatively, when the handpiece fails, dentists send them back to the manufacturer for repair or they purchase replacement turbines from them or supply houses. If they send it to the original manufacturer, the turnaround time is usually weeks and the price tag is high; if they simply buy replacement turbines, the cost is 2-3 times our overhaul price. So, if the dentist is doing either of those two things, our franchisees can save them a lot of time and money and provide them with a more personalized and responsive service. This competitive advantage serves as a solid foundation for our franchisees to enjoy a successful and lucrative career in a growing industry.
