Transparent Measurement of Your Dental Waste An interview with Michel Saphir, Managing Director of the metalvalor Group and Antje Isbaner, ZWP, Issue 5/2015
Mr Saphir, you are the Managing Director of the metalvalor Group in Germany, France and Luxembourg. What benefits do your clients receive from using the service provided by metalvalor?
Our prices are based on the precise amount of precious metals contained in the dental waste, given at our clients site.
What does that mean exactly?
Until now, the gold content was based on an estimate (e.g. 50%, does the material contain maybe 20%, 50% or 70% of gold ?). Our method is that we visit our client and measure in their presence the precise amount of gold content in their dental alloys. If the material contained, as an example 70% of gold then we pay the exact percentage of gold contained in the alloy and not based on an estimated percentage. Most of our competitors who buy locally do not have the desired equipment needed to measure precious metals. Their price is calculated based on an estimate. Due to our technology gold is of better value and is therefore purchased at a price corresponding to its precise content.
How does metalvalor proceed to determine the composition of the alloys at the client’s site?
Our specialist technicians travel to our clients (dentists and dental technicians) equipped with a portable spectrometer. This device allows us to calculate the precise amount of gold and other precious metals contained in alloys within minutes. The analysis procedure is free of charge and upon completion the client then has the option to finalise the sale without obligation.
The prices offered for dental waste vary daily depending on the London fixed prices for precious metals. This allows us to offer our clients the guarantee of a transparent working method that allows them the opportunity to sell their dental waste at the best price possible.
