According to LaingBuisson, the dental industry in the U.K amounts to over £7.1 billion, and dental tenders play a pivotal role. Dental tenders can act as catalysts for exponential business growth. In essence, it’s the perfect time to start bidding on dental contracts. Fortunately, we’ve got experience with dental tenders, so we’ll walk you through methods of sourcing and winning these contracts.
Through our extensive searches for dental contracts, we’ve come to one sensible option…
By removing unreliable CPV codes, we’ve created a portal that infinitely smoothens the process of tender searches.
Our Healthcare Tenders portal uploads a wide range of tenders in the healthcare industry, across the UK. This helps to streamline the process, saving you time and resources.
Healthcare Tenders is a time-saving tool. Our Opportunity Trackers manually search hundreds of sites for the latest healthcare leads and opportunities. They upload a whole range of opportunities such as single-provider contracts, NHS frameworks and DPSs. Once they are uploaded to our portal, you can filter the results by budget, keyword, location and more.

It should go without saying that as dental tenders require medical practitioners to bid, they will require extensive standards. After all, any contract within the healthcare sector should have one central aspect – the quality of patient care. And that can only be verified through several qualifications and regulations. Ultimately, when you’re considering whether to bid, you need to ensure that your qualifications match those needed.
In the public sector, social value is important in the tendering process, weighing as much as 10% in evaluation criteria. Once you provide evidence that you’re adhering to this model of values, you’re chances of winning a dental tender will increase. To demonstrate social value, buyers are looking to see how you are:
Keeping on top of dental tender deadlines should be a top priority. If you miss the deadline, you simply won’t be considered. We recommend creating trackers to ensure you meet the deadline. Set internal dates to work towards and organise progress meetings. These will improve team cohesion and help provide a consistent tender response.
