Drive Your Success with Marketing

Marketing Collateral

As a partner lab, your marketing heft grows with each lab network that you join through Glidewell. The advertising platforms are diverse, and the goal is clear-cut: Help dentists find you.

From direct mailers to magazine ads to email campaigns, Glidewell spends millions on brand-centric advertising and strategies to promote member labs. Your lab’s name and contact information also are added online, allowing doctors to quickly locate you.

You’re empowered to take marketing strategies into your own hands, too. We’ve put together a dynamic roster of materials for your use, including images, logos and scientific documentation. As a member lab, all of these resources are freely available via your account at glidewelldirect.com.

Ready to Get Started?

Authorized BruxZir® Laboratories

Make your mark in the monolithic revolution as an Authorized BruxZir Lab. With over 10 million restorations placed, BruxZir Solid Zirconia is a go-to material for doctors and labs. Join the global lab network, and let your doctors know they can count on you for all of their full-contour zirconia needs.

To become eligible, just choose one of the options below:

  1. Purchase BruxZir Milling Blanks for in-house milling. Your lab’s debut as an Authorized BruxZir Lab follows right on the heels of buying five blanks per month for 90 days. Just keep up this purchase average, for a total of 60 or more blanks per year, to maintain your status as a trusted BruxZir lab. Authentic BruxZir Lab Blanks are sold in the U.S. via Glidewell Direct (Irvine, Calif.) and Zahn Dental, Inc. (Melville, N.Y.).
  2. Outsource BruxZir cases to an Authorized BruxZir Milling Center. If you’re not ready to invest in CAD/CAM systems, outsourcing is an easy way to catapult your lab onto the Authorized BruxZir Lab list. Just choose a milling center, and send in conventional model work or digital design files. You can order either unfinished restorations (milled and sintered; you stain and glaze) or finished restorations.

Certified Inclusive® Custom Implant Abutment Laboratories

Put our industry-leading technologies to work for your lab. Just outsource your Inclusive Custom Abutments and Bars to Glidewell, and we’ll take care of marketing your lab under the dentist-recognized Inclusive brand. Thanks to our CAD/CAM tools and ace technicians, you’ll be providing precise Inclusive solutions for your doctors — with all of the ease of outsourcing.

To join the Certified Inclusive Lab list, outsource your cases to us via one of these routes:

  1. Send your model work.
  2. Send a 3Shape design file.

Authorized Comfort H/S™ Bite Splint Labs

Tap into the ease of thermoforming, and help your doctors serve their patients with Comfort H/S Hard Soft Bite Splints. Members labs are those who buy genuine ERKODENT® materials and equipment, all available via Glidewell Direct. Outfit your lab with all of the essentials, and put the marketing momentum of Comfort H/S Bite Splints behind your lab.

Outsourcing Services

CAD/CAM technology is an essential tool, but your lab’s relevance doesn’t hinge on investing in the latest and greatest. Outsource your cases to the Glidewell Milling Center, and you can immediately expand your lab’s offerings — without the financial drain of pricey new equipment and labor costs. Whether your doctors need BruxZir crowns, implant overdentures or practically any other restoration, our outsource team is ready to ply CAD/CAM tools for your benefit.

Plus, our segmented services and stepped pricing keep you in charge of the production workflow. From designing to milling to finishing, you get to choose the steps that the Glidewell Milling Center completes for you.
