Published: 07/07/2017

Dental Directory has acquired the independent, specialist supplier of orthodontic products Torque Orthodontics based in Shipley, West Yorkshire, which supplies products to orthodontists and dentists in private and NHS practices, hospitals and dental centres across the UK.

Dental Directory is one of the largest UK dental wholesalers and has been operating for almost 45 years. It provides a range of products and services to dentists across the UK including dental consumables; oral hygiene; facial aesthetics; dental equipment, including installation and maintenance; as well as handpiece repairs.

Mark Stephenson, managing director of Dental Directory, said, “We are delighted that Torque Orthodontics is to be part of the business. It has a long established and highly respected name in the UK orthodontics market and it is a natural fit for Dental Directory. The acquisition brings together two established orthodontic ranges and brings a unique offer to the market including 2,500 orthodontic products, 3Shape intra oral scanners, a UK exclusive on GC orthodontic products, ortho implants and Clear Correct aligners.

“The existing management team, which will continue to lead the business, has done excellent work in delivering strong business performance and customer service. It will continue to supply all its existing customers, including independent dentists and practices. Its capabilities and expertise are entirely complementary”

Torque Orthodontics Managing Director, John Lancaster, commented, “We are very pleased to be partnering with Dental Directory. They strongly support our strategy to develop the proposition for our customers, to enhance the Torque Orthodontics range and to make it more widely available.”
