1) Reputation – Scientific Metals has several affiliations and partnerships with prestigious associations and has an approved refining program for members of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS) ,an Affinity Precious Metals Program with the American College of Prosthodontists (ACP) as well as working closely with the world renown Seattle Study Club at the national and local levels.
2) No reps to share profits with – For most companies, including refining companies, the largest cost input is labor. Scientific Metals has eliminated its sales reps – drastically reducing its costs, allowing them to pass on savings to their customers in the form of higher scrap payments.
3) Cost structure – You won’t see Scientific Metals at every dental trade show nor will you see their scrap collection jar in your mailbox every month. The reason is simple. Lower costs mean higher scrap returns for the customer.
4) Every dentist deserves a fair and accurate return on their scrap – Unlike the middlemen who stop by the office and pay based simply on the weight of the material and separate it into the “yellow-looking” and “white-looking” metal, Scientific Metals will melt and chemically assay your scrap all under the same roof.
