The online store provides dentists with over 16,000 different dental products from alloys to dental instruments to x-ray products.

Online, as well as traditional marketing techniques have been incorporated into a marketing campaign to promote online sales. The process and challenges of marketing this Web site with a tight budget are discussed. Results of the first two years of marketing efforts are reported.
