Garfield Refining Company, a leading refiner of precious metals, has won the 2013 Townie Choice Award for the third consecutive year in the “Scrap Metal Refining” category. Garfield Refining is pleased to accept the honor, which is awarded based on votes from the professional dental community.

“We are unbelievably honored and extremely grateful to have won the Townie Choice Award for the third year in a row,” said Mike Sherbekow, Director of Sales for Garfield Refining. “We are constantly striving to improve our customer experience and winning awards like this reassures us that we’re doing the right thing.”

Since 2003, the Townie Choice Awards have been given annually to recognize excellence in the field of dentistry, as well as specialized and technological services that help advance the dental industry. The awards are presented by Farran Media’s Dentaltown magazine, an industry publication that keeps members of the dental community informed about products and innovations designed to help further their practice. Dentaltown readers voted in over 100 categories to give their nod to services and products recognized among the top professionals.

Although the “Scrap Metal Refining” category is a relatively new one, Garfield Refining has won the award each year since its inception in 2011. The Philadelphia-based Garfield Refining has been in business for over 120 years and, throughout its history, has served the dental community by recovering precious metals from dental scrap, such as discarded fillings, clasps, inlays, bridge work, and other metal extractions. Garfield Refining’s in-house team of experts use the latest in refining equipment and technologies to separate gold and other precious metals from dental scrap. These high-tech techniques allow Garfield Refining to offer professionals the highest possible return on recovered materials.

In Dentaltown’s annual survey, Garfield Refining received twice as many votes as its nearest competitor. Townie Choice Awards ballots were accepted from registered members of the Dentaltown website and surveys submitted by magazine readers.
