I cant be anymore clear about this point, a company like dandy will NOT help a struggling mom and pop. Giving a middleman a cut will only allow them to make less than they would if you just sent them the case directly, its simple math. If a mom and pop cant afford to get into digital, then they are destined for failure anyways. I dealt with this a few years ago when a bankrupt client, who stole a lot of money from me, sold to a large multi-practice Dr. They said they would continue to work with me if I could do emax crowns for $68. I laughed and said goodbye. When an emax ingot is $15-20, add in other overhead, I would have to pay them to not send to me. Our industry is in the hands of good dentists that care about their patients and do good work. Shortcuts be damned. Its the story of walmart/amazon vs mom and pops. You will end up with very limited choices in the end after the rest of the small labs close. That has already happened and Dandy (and drs who support them) will finish the job. But when there is no network for dandy to use, who will be left?
