Many companies these days deal in collecting, recycling, and metals such as gold, copper, aluminum, and silver. Some companies will offer consumers cash for old jewelry or other metal household items. But for the metals used frequently in a dental practice, you should choose a specialized dental scrap buyer.

Understands the Dental Practice

A company that deals solely with dental scrap will understand the unique needs of a dental practice. They aren’t distracted by other types of customers or the need to promote themselves to consumers. Instead, they are interested in developing trusting and ongoing relationships with the dental practices they serve.

They also understand that dental scrap involves metal recycling of a different kind. Compared to jewelry, dental gold may have a lower karat value or may be alloyed with other metals. Gold may also be used in porcelain crowns and other items.

Expertise in Pricing

Dental scrap buyers are also experts in pricing. Because they handle only one product, they know the market and can keep current with price variations, especially with the various types and grades of gold and metal used in dental materials. Consumer gold dealers may not even realize that recyclable metals are present in your dental scrap.

Companies dealing exclusively in dental scrap are also experts in determining the most effective way to evaluate your dental scrap for payment. The metal needs to be sorted and weighed precisely; pricing methods used for jewelry and other consumer items won’t return an accurate value.

Focused on Service

A final reason for choosing a dental scrap recycling company is the service they provide. Since a dental practice produces a steady stream of scrap metals that need to be recycled, the company wishes to provide a steady, regular service that meets your needs. A fly-by-night gold buyer will not do this.

A dental scrap buyer may offer you several service options. They may visit your office personally or provide you with mail-in envelopes for you or your patients.

Recycling the metals used in dental practice can have environmental benefits, and it can benefit your practice in other ways. To get top dollar for your dental metals and the service and attention you deserve, you should consider dealing with a specialized dental scrap buyer.
