Responding to the challenge of the internationally increasing competition, we promise to remain at the top of the Greek market and add to our customer’s satisfaction. Last but not least, we would like to thank our customers for their trust and our business associates for their support.

Yours faithfully,

Chris Sariyannis

The sales and promotion networklecture hall side clinic

Sadent has arguably the best sales and promotion network in the dental Greek market and a growing network for the dermatological and plastic surgeons market. Our network has been expanding since 1925. Sadent has supplied more than 70% of the total equipment sold to State Dental Universities, clinics, hospitals, the Greek Army and the National Health and Insurance Organizations. Our customers include most of the opinion leaders, University Professors and best laboratories in Greece. Moreover Sadent is supplying on a regular more than 100 small dental depots all over Greece. Our clientele sums up to more than 8,000 customers.
Sadent has a unique continuous education facility with state of the art equipment where lectures, hands on courses and seminars take place. Having the lecture hall on the same building with our logistics center makes the perfect location for even the most demanding hands on courses where every product can be presented under the best possible conditions. Famous lecturers such as Prof.P.I.Braenemark have offered their scientific expertise on our premises. Seminars are also held by Sadent in the Athens and Thessaloniki dental schools and in collaboration with the Greek dental societies. This assists Sadent to build a unique relationship with Greek dentists and labs and promote new technologies and products in the most efficient way.

The facilities

Sadent is based on the two major cities that concentrate 60% of the population of Greece, Athens and Thessaloniki. A network of sub dealers and technicians in more than 15 other smaller cities brings us close to our customers.

This building was completed in 2011 and features one of the largest and most contemporary facilities in the dental/medical business in Europe. Our new headquarters feature an exhibition, a continuous education centre and state of the art logistics. There are two more branches in downtown Athens and Thessaloniki.
