Wade Myers: Quite Literally “Going The Extra Mile” To Offer Dentists Top-Notch, Affordable Dental Equipment

Articles, Editors Pick, Feature Cover

By Dr. Glenn Vo, Editor-in-Chief of Dental Lifestyles Magazine

As a dentist and the founder of the Nifty Thrifty Dentists Facebook group, I have had the pleasure of connecting with numerous talented suppliers who cater to bargain hunters in the dental industry. Among them, Wade Myers—Founder and Owner of GotaDental—has become a celebrity in the world of dental equipment bargain-hunting. He stands out as a true innovator and a dedicated professional who has significantly impacted the way dental practices acquire top-notch equipment without breaking the bank.

I first learned about Wade and GotaDental through his reputation for providing high-quality, refurbished dental equipment at affordable prices. Needless to say, he had no problem becoming a popular figure in the Nifty community. As I got to know him better, I discovered a man driven by a passion for excellence and an admirable commitment to customer service.

Wade’s journey went from sales to entrepreneurship.

Wade’s journey in the dental industry began nearly a decade ago when he started working in sales for his brother’s company. During this time, Wade gained valuable experience and insight into the needs and challenges faced by dental professionals. However, his ambitious nature and desire to achieve more led him to strike out on his own—in 2018, Wade founded GotaDental. 

Based in Cabot, Arkansas, GotaDental started with a focus on selling renovated film processors. All great entrepreneurs inevitably face a whole lot of doubt in the early stages of their journey and, naturally, Wade initially faced numerous challenges and skepticism from others in the industry. Many doubted the viability of his business model, believing that the market for refurbished dental equipment was limited. Undeterred by these obstacles, Wade persevered, gradually expanding his offerings to include a wide range of dental equipment—from dental chairs and x-ray machines to sterilizers and handpieces.

Before long, Wade was partnering with a plethora of dental supply companies to make sure his clients always got the exact piece of equipment they needed—whether it was top-of-the-line digital imaging systems, dental film processors, cavitrons, a complete office install, or just a single chair. Fast forward to the present, and GotaDental houses an extensive selection of supplies from the biggest brands in the industry: Air Techniques, Adec, Belmont, Dentsply, Gendex, Pelton & Crane, Midmark, and SciCan are just some of the leading equipment manufacturers that GotaDental carries and sells daily.

It didn’t take long for GotaDental to earn a strong reputation for quality and reliability.

As Wade’s business grew, he remained committed to sourcing only the highest quality equipment for refurbishment. He understood that dental practices rely heavily on their equipment to provide top-notch care to their patients and that any downtime due to malfunctioning or unreliable equipment could be costly—both financially and in terms of patient trust.

To ensure the quality and reliability of his products, Wade developed a meticulous refurbishment process that went above and beyond industry standards. When a piece of equipment arrives at GotaDental’s facilities, it undergoes a thorough inspection to assess its condition and determine the scope of work required. From there, Wade and his team of skilled technicians completely disassemble the equipment, cleaning, repairing, and replacing components as needed.

But Wade’s refurbishment process doesn’t stop at simply making the equipment functional again. He takes great pride in the attention to detail his team puts into every piece of equipment they work on. Cosmetic touches—such as repainting and reupholstering—are done with care to make the equipment look as close to new as possible. More importantly, Wade insists on using only high-quality replacement parts, often sourcing them directly from the original equipment manufacturers to ensure compatibility and longevity.

The end result of this rigorous refurbishment process is dental equipment that not only looks great but also functions reliably, often exceeding the performance of new equipment at a fraction of the cost. Wade’s commitment to quality and reliability has earned GotaDental a loyal following among dental professionals who appreciate the value and peace of mind that comes with purchasing equipment from a trusted source.

GotaDental offers more than just refurbished equipment—it also sells new equipment and repair services.

While GotaDental is well-known for its high-quality refurbished equipment, the company offers much more than that. Wade and his team also provide expert repair services for a wide range of dental equipment, ensuring that practices can keep their existing equipment in top working condition.

Drawing on his extensive experience as a technician and his in-depth knowledge of dental equipment, Wade is able to diagnose and fix even the most complex issues. Whether it’s a malfunctioning x-ray machine or a dental chair that needs a new hydraulic system, GotaDental’s repair services can help practices avoid the costly downtime that comes with equipment failures.

In addition to refurbished equipment and repair services, GotaDental also offers a selection of brand-new dental equipment from leading manufacturers. Wade understands that while refurbished equipment is a great option for many practices, some clients prefer the peace of mind that comes with purchasing new equipment. By offering both refurbished and new options, GotaDental is able to meet the diverse needs of dental practices at various stages of growth and with different budgetary constraints.

A culture of top-tier customer service is an actual “driving force” behind GotaDental’s success.

Wade is committed to literally “going the extra mile” for his customers. Often, he personally delivers equipment to ensure its safe arrival. He understands the importance of minimizing the risk of damage during transit, and his white-glove delivery service has become a hallmark of GotaDental’s exceptional customer care.

Wade’s dedication to his clients is evident in the countless miles he drives each year, crisscrossing the country to source and deliver top-quality dental equipment. His willingness to go above and beyond—whether it’s driving through the night to make a delivery or taking the time to train clients on the proper use and maintenance of their new equipment—sets him apart in an industry where impersonal service is all too common.

But Wade’s commitment to customer service extends far beyond delivery and installation. He and his team are always available to answer questions, provide support, and troubleshoot any issues that may arise. Dental practices that purchase equipment from GotaDental can rest assured that they have a partner they can count on, long after the sale is complete.

This level of personalized service is a testament to Wade’s belief in building long-term relationships with his customers. He understands that the success of his business is directly tied to the success of the dental practices he serves, and he goes to great lengths to ensure that his clients have the tools and support they need to thrive.

Wade is on a mission to make dentistry more affordable—not only for his clients but also for his clients’ clients.

For Wade, providing affordable dental equipment isn’t just about making money—it’s about making a difference in the lives of both dental professionals and their patients. He recognizes that the high cost of new dental equipment can be a significant barrier for many practices, especially those just starting out or serving communities with limited resources.

By offering high-quality, refurbished equipment at a fraction of the cost of new equipment, Wade is helping to level the playing field and make it possible for more practices to access the tools they need to provide top-notch care. This, in turn, makes dentistry more affordable and accessible for patients, many of whom might otherwise forgo necessary treatments due to cost concerns.

Wade’s commitment to making dentistry more affordable extends beyond just the sale of equipment. He is always willing to work with customers to find creative solutions to their unique challenges—whether that means customizing a piece of equipment to fit their specific needs or offering flexible financing options to help them manage the cost of their purchase.

In this way, Wade is not just a vendor but a true partner to the dental practices he serves. His passion for dentistry and dedication to supporting the success of his clients is evident in everything he does—from the care he puts into refurbishing equipment to the time he takes to understand each practice’s individual needs and goals.

GotaDental has a bright future of continued growth and impact.

As GotaDental continues to grow—with multiple warehouses across the country and a dedicated team of skilled technicians—Wade remains committed to his mission of making high-quality dental equipment accessible and affordable for practices of all sizes. He is constantly seeking out new ways to innovate and improve his products and services—whether that means investing in new technologies or developing partnerships with leading manufacturers.

Looking to the future, Wade sees endless opportunities to continue making a positive impact on the dental industry. He plans to expand GotaDental’s offerings to include an even wider range of equipment and supplies, educational resources, and support services to help dental professionals stay at the forefront of their field.

But no matter how much GotaDental grows, Wade is determined to maintain the company’s commitment to quality, reliability, and exceptional customer service. He knows that these values are what have set GotaDental apart from the beginning, and he is dedicated to upholding them as the company evolves and expands.

For Wade, success is not just measured in dollars and cents, but in the impact he and his team are able to make on the lives of dental professionals and their patients. Every piece of equipment that leaves GotaDental’s facilities represents an opportunity to help a practice provide better care more efficiently and affordably. And every satisfied customer represents a step towards a healthier, happier community.

Wade has built a company that is changing the face of dental equipment supply, one practice at a time.

In conclusion, Wade Myers and GotaDental are shining examples of what can be achieved when passion, expertise, and a commitment to excellence come together. Through hard work, innovation, and a customer-centric approach, Wade has built a company that is changing the face of dental equipment supply, one practice at a time.

 As a member of the dental community, I am grateful for the contributions Wade and his team have made to our industry. Their dedication to quality, affordability, and service is an inspiration to us all—and a reminder of the power we have as dental professionals to make a real difference in the lives of those we serve.

I have no doubt that GotaDental will continue to be a driving force in shaping the future of dentistry. I look forward to seeing all the ways in which Wade and his team will continue to innovate and grow in the years to come. With their profound commitment to excellence and passion for making dentistry more accessible and affordable for all, there is no limit to their impact.
