Dentist's Refining Guide
A comprehensive guide to getting the most out of your refining transactions
For over 120 years, Garfield has been recognized as one of the most trusted dental metal recovery companies nationwide. By maintaining meticulous standards and staying on the cutting edge of the technology and techniques, we have provided the dental community with the highest level of service in all aspects of the refining process.
What to Sell
Garfield’s team of dental gold buyers are refining experts with a deep knowledge of all precious metals, including gold, silver, platinum, and palladium. Dental professionals may sell crown and bridge work, dentures, inlays, clasps, fillings, gold teeth, grindings, polishings, bars, amalgam and other metal extractions by shipping them to our gold refinery. As part of the process, skilled workers will separate the dental gold scrap from any contained waste material at no added cost. From there, materials are processed through our assay laboratory which ensures accuracy and maximum yield for all dental gold and silver scrap.
When to Sell
At current precious metals prices, even a fraction of an ounce can yield a sizeable return. So the truth is, there is no wrong time to sell dental gold! Garfield's average dental gold customers ship about three times a year, but we don't have any minimum or maximum lot size requirements. We recommend against trying to time the precious metals market perfectly, and instead adhere to a more balanced financial strategy similar to “averaging,” by shipping more regularly. This approach better safeguards against gold, silver, and palladium price fluctuations, and in the long run will put more money in your pocket.
Garfield has cultivated a reputation as one of the foremost refiners of dental scrap gold spanning over 120 years in the gold refining industry. We have forged long-standing relationships based on mutual trust with both individual dental practices, as well as dozens of dental societies and professional organizations such as the National Association of Dental Laboratories (NADL). We offer the latest in refining technology, equipment, and techniques to assess the value of recovered dental gold. In addition, we pay for all precious metals contained, including palladium and platinum. Many refiners simple ignore the other non-gold precious metals, which is taking money out of your pocket. By providing a direct link to gold refining professionals and eliminating brokers from the process, Garfield is able to deliver the highest possible return on scrap dental gold and silver. Furthermore, we guarantee your satisfaction 100%.
