THIEVES STEAL £25K OF DENTAL GOODS IN TARGETED HEIST

Last week an organised group of thieves used power tools to cut their way into a secure unit in Lincolnshire overnight. Once inside they loaded 48 pallets of goods into a haulage container and used the lorry to ram through the exit barrier as they made a clean getaway.

What did they steal? A whopping £25,000 worth of mouthwash and other home-use dental products.


It’s not quite Ocean’s 11


Normally we’d brush this off as a mistake by the thieves but a few months back we fell victim to a similar incident ourselves as Dr Denti home-treatment kits totalling £30,000 went missing. The kits were destined for Germany but luckily, they were found for resale on the black market and the police quickly got involved for us.

This coming week members of our team are travelling to Germany with product samples to show off at the International Dental Show in Cologne. As you’d expect, we’re going to be super-vigilant in keeping an eye out for any rogue traders while we’re there!

Dental products are a strange choice of target but when you consider how hard it is to get a dental appointment right now you start to get to the root of the issue.
