Quality Endodontic Distributors Limited was founded in 1989 as a wholesaler selling Maillefer products from Switzerland. The range consisted of endodontic instruments, post systems and burs. Our company was the first specialist wholesaler majoring in endodontic products.
After eight years of continued sales growth within the UK, the Maillefer company was sold to Dentsply, their largest customer. Dentsply, the new owners, wanted to distribute this fantastic product range themselves.
QED, as we had become known, had to change quickly. We decided to become a retailer. As well as selecting a range of products from the Maillefer catalogue, we researched other endodontic suppliers and began to build what is now the widest and best selection of products available from any company in this field.
At the same time, we began to build our first sales team. From the start, we worked to ensure that they had a sound knowledge of endodontics, and continued on-the-job training enhanced their expertise. Our sales team today provides valuable information and advice to our customer base. This is backed up by our in house team of dedicated personnel who in each department make sure that the whole process of customer care works as one machine (See 'Contact Us' for details)
As we enter our twenty fourth year, I am proud to have been the founder of the first dental company to specialise in endodontics supplies. We all look forward to the challenges and opportunities the years ahead will bring.
