There from the start.
1967 was a watershed year for the dental surgery community and the profession at large: The practice of oral surgery was rapidly transitioning to private practices across the United States. Yet the transition had left the profession with surgical products and instrumentation unsuitable for oral surgical procedures. Undaunted, and with many patients to treat, J. Edward Carchidi, DDS, went to work developing products that made sense for his private practice and his patients. This is how ACE Surgical Supply began. Word spread, and more oral surgeons sought Dr. Carchidi’s recast and customized dental surgical supplies. And they still do today.
“We didn’t have certain things, so we invented them.”
Dr. Carchidi cited an emerging niche unrecognized by medical and traditional dental suppliers at the time. His entrepreneurial instincts surfaced — the specialized needs of oral surgeons would best be met by a fellow oral surgeon like himself, offering smartly modified products designed in his workroom for a fair price. The response was immediate and immense. Dr. C’s workroom gave way to an ever-expanding office, a loyal staff, and an official business name: ACE Surgical Supply. Forty-nine years later, ACE operates on this single enduring principle: How can we better serve oral surgeons and dental practitioners?
The symbiotic relationship between oral surgeons and ACE was thereby established. Cultivating each business relationship has meant listening and re-examining everything from purchase quantities to core materials, thus assuring the most efficient purchasing strategies for managing a profitable practice. Affordability is central to patient retention. Our entire portfolio of products extends best-in-class competitive pricing — just one of the ways we’ve been instrumental in advancing oral healthcare.
