The American Dental Association (ADA) mission is to help its 163,000 members improve the oral health of their patients. ADA Member Advantage, the wholly-owned endorsement subsidiary of the ADA, seeks out trustworthy providers offering best-in-class products to help its members manage their practices more effectively.
To receive an ADA Member Advantage endorsement, products must solve a proven need of the dental community. Preferred suppliers must:
- Have a successful track record of working with dentists
- Be committed to helping dentists maintain a productive practice environment
- Undergo detailed due diligence, including financial reviews and site visits
- Deliver the highest quality customer service
- Offer preferred pricing to ADA members
Working with companies endorsed by ADA Member Advantage (formerly known as ADA Business Resources), practices can be confident that the endorsed products they purchase and the endorsed services they utilize have been fully researched and vetted by ADA Member Advantage staff and its Board of Directors, made up of volunteer dentists.
HealthFirst Products Receive ADA Member Advantage Endorsement
HealthFirst offers one-stop, money-saving solutions for emergency preparedness, dental waste disposal, and compliance so that you can focus on your patients. When ADA members sought out specific solutions to pressing practice needs, ADA Member Advantage began looking for products and suppliers that could pass or exceed their stringent evaluating criteria. Over the course of a competitive RFP process, HealthFirst rose to the top of the list in three solution areas.
Emergency Medical Kits. Because preparation is key, HealthFirst emergency medical kits for dentists guarantee both organization and mobility for your practice’s emergency medications, supplies, and devices. Offering three different solutions to meet your practice’s needs, HealthFirst kits are a cost-effective way to ensure emergency preparedness. And with medications auto-replenishment, your emergency medications and devices will be tracked and replenished before expiration. HealthFirst kits received ADA Member Advantage endorsement in 2017 and are available to ADA members at a discount.
Amalgam Recovery Program. HealthFirst’s Amalgam Recovery Program is the only solution of its kind in the industry and helps you meet the EPA amalgam rule. It features the durable, long-lasting, Rebec Environmental CatchHG® amalgam separator for 99.68% removal efficiency, waste recovery containers that meet ADA BMP standards and ANSI 109 requirements, and VacBlu pH Balanced Vacuum Line Cleaner which also meets ADA Best Management Practice (BMP) standards. To help make dental amalgam compliance easier, HealthFirst’s mailback solution provides a cost-effective and convenient way to dispose of your amalgam waste when containers are full. ADA Member Advantage endorsed the HealthFirst Amalgam Recovery Program in 2014. ADA members can get exclusive savings of up to 33% off MSRP, with a lifetime guarantee and fine indemnification.
Sharps Management Program. Designed with dentistry in mind, Healthfirst’s sharps mailback solution makes managing your practice’s sharps waste easy. Ranging in size from one quart to 18 gallons, Sharps containers are mailed back when full for environmentally safe processing. This program is compliant, economical and endorsed by ADA Member Advantage. Container costs, return shipment and disposal are included in the purchase price that is discounted 10% for ADA members.
