A Serious Threat to Patient Safety

  • Gray market is a serious threat to patient safety

    Gray market is a serious threat to patient safety

    Gray market has grown as the internet and online purchasing venues have provided easy opportunities for unauthorized products to enter the marketplace, with little scrutiny.

    These products can be difficult to distinguish from authentic ones and are tempting to buy because they're often priced lower than products sold through a secure supply chain. But there's a huge potential downside when using them. Every gray market product raises the risk of product failure due to improper storage, shipping or phony expiration dates – not to mention the risk of using an inferior quality, counterfeit product.


3M's Commitment to Patient Safety

  • 3M has zero tolerance for any activities that put patient safety and dental practices at risks.
