DD, the Number One Choice!

The DD mantra is to get it right, first time, every time. DD customer service agents are responsible for handling calls from dental professionals; they understand that client time is precious and look to provide solutions efficiently and effectively, with products being delivered next day.

During the Covid-19 Pandemic, DD kept its doors open and pivoted to support both existing and new customers doing all it could to support organisations such as Ambulance, Police, and other key workers with essentials such as PPE. The fantastic customer contact centre took thousands of calls a day at its peak and was able to aid and reassure concerned key workers. As a result, DD is now the sole supplier for some of the largest dental corporates in the UK.
