Allan Stockwin, Chairman of Safe4 and ex-Chairman of the Dental Buying Group (DBG), announces a return to the dental market.
When I sold the DBG and The Dental Supply House in 2010, I decided to retain control of Safe4, one of the most ethical ranges of products available in the UK.
The company has always maintained its primary principle of delivering safe products that protect both the end user and the environment. It's been a big educational exercise but we have managed to spread the word in many markets and deal directly with the majority of customers who care about their patients and the environment.
Our next endeavor is to return to the dental profession, which up until now has always purchased through dental wholesale companies. Understandably, many of these companies have few loyalties to brands and little understanding of the products they sell and the substances contained within them. They simply stock and sell the solutions in most demand, or those that generate the largest profit. Some even sell Safe4 and many dentists used it when The Dental Supply House was still operating.
By offering our products directly to you, we strive to really get to know you and therefore deliver a more personalised service tailored to the type of business you run and the demands you face. In addition to providing full data sheets, we can explain them to you as well, answering any questions you may have there and then.
We believe we have managed, through our educational programme, to dramatically reduce the number of hazardous products sold in the UK and abroad. However, we still have a long way to go and it would be nice to think we can be as successful in the dental market as we have been in many other markets.
We have been very mindful to remain abreast of the very latest advancements and changes to the regulations surrounding cleaning and disinfectant products and protocols in the healthcare and veterinary sectors. As such, we have been, and continue to be, not only well placed to offer clarification and advice on these topics, but also very happy to do so as part of the service we provide. We are here to help you ensure the highest standards of safety within your practice and we are proud to offer you such highly effective, easy-to-use and safe disinfection products.
When you look at the list of internationally leading names using Safe4 products, it can't be a coincidence that they have chosen the best to protect their staff and clients. In the animal care sector, for example, we are proud to work with key global organisations, zoos and sanctuaries such as Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, Blue Cross, London Zoo, Twycross Zoo, Chester Zoo, PDSA and Universal Studios, as well as SeaLife in 10 different countries around the world.
Safe4 products have been clinically proven to be effective against a wide range of harmful pathogens including viruses, bacterium and fungi. These include candida albians, E.coli, hepatitis C, HIV, listeria, MRSA, salmonella, staphyloccus aureus, swine flu and trchophyton,[i] preventing the spread of infection throughout your dental practice.
Alcohol-free, non-toxic and non-irritant, our products contain no harsh chemicals that are harmful to the natural world or humans, delivering the ultimate protection for your patients, your staff and the environment.
In fact, our solutions are so safe that you needn’t worry about rinsing or drying them once they have been used on surfaces – they pose absolutely no risk to anyone or anything that may come into contact with the product while it’s still wet. Perfect for rapid yet effective decontamination processes between patient appointments, while also eliminating any health concerns in the case of product accident or spillage, you can have complete confidence in the safety of both your staff and your patients.
Non-corrosive and non-staining, our products are also safe for use on a wide variety of surface materials, as they won’t damage your worktops or equipment.
We are excited to launch three core products especially for dental professionals:
- Disinfectant Cleaner – available in 900 ml and 5 litre containers, as well as a trigger spray and wipes
- Instrument Cleaner – available in 1 litre and 5 litre containers
- Safe4 Nitrile Gloves – available in sizes small, medium and large
