With good dental health being fundamental to maintaining one’s overall health, quality dental consumables and supplies are nothing short of indispensable.

With a global footprint spanning major strategic locations globally, Unimed is able to deliver medical supplies including dental equipment and supplies to over 44 countries.

What Are Dental Consumables?


Dental consumables are single-use products used to carry out dental work. Just like medical consumables, these are often indispensable even for basic procedures. These could include supplies such as:

  • Gauze

  • Aspirator Tips

  • Face masks

  • Gloves

  • Cotton Rolls

  • Floss

  • Adhesives

  • Tray liners

  • Implants

  • Prosthetics

  • Braces

  • Crows

  • Prophylaxis Cups

  • Rubber Dams

  • Dental Impression Materials

Why Is Dental Supplies Procurement Vital?


Dental supplies are an important part of healthcare procurement, with both dental consumables and basic supplies to support oral health and hygiene being essential to the overall wellbeing of individuals.

Abnormalities within dental health can signal the presence of other issues, meaning dental health is a window to overall health.

Poor oral health can lead to a diminished quality of life, causing significant issues such as infections, tooth decay or gum disease, and potentially other health problems such as heart complications, strokes and diabetes.

Single-use dental consumables are particularly useful in instances where sterilisation of products for reuse is not possible, as well as in emergency situations whereby certain individuals may not have access to essential supplies.

Populations living in countries that are struck by natural disasters or conflicts may find themselves in need of basic healthcare commodities including dental equipment and supplies, for instance as a result of disaster displacement.

Procurement in these circumstances plays a vital role, as receiving the right products at the right time can make all the difference in the quality of life of communities affected.

Meeting Your Procurement Needs Effectively


With sustainable dental procurement as well as the ethical procurement of a wide range of healthcare supplies being at the heart of Unimed’s operations, Unimed works with transparency and integrity, prioritising quality, affordability and safety.

Unimed regularly partners with like-minded aid agencies, development organisations and research institutions as well as governments to source and deliver essential supplies, often under difficult circumstances.
