2014 Winner for Best Dental Refiner

Proud Winner of the 2014 Dentaltown Magazine Townie Choice Award for Best Refiner

Philadelphia, PA – December 10, 2014 – Garfield Refining Company is honored to announce that it has received its fourth Townie Choice Award ® in a row for its precious metals refining solutions. Voted nationwide by dentists, this incredible honor exemplifies Garfield Refining’s commitment to being the best dental scrap refiner through its first-class customer service, competitive dental scrap payouts, and staying attuned to cutting-edge industry knowledge. 

“Since going into private practice with my father in 1988, I have changed prosthetic labs, dental supply companies, banks, and business consultants,” said Dr. David Walker, DMD of Walker Raynal Dentistry. “The one constant through the years has been my professional relationship with Garfield Refining and one of their Regional Account Executives, Andrew Bryer. Garfield, and Andrew, have always provided great service that is prompt, accurate, and most importantly, ethical and honest.” 

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 top professionals.

Garfield Refining has won the award each year since its inception in 2011. In Dentaltown’s annual survey, the Philadelphia-based Garfield Refining received over twice as many votes as its nearest competitor. Having been in business for over 120 years and, throughout its history, Garfield Refining 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 industry experts use the latest in refining equipment and technologies to separate gold, palladium, and other precious metals from dental scrap. These high-tech techniques allow Garfield Refining to offer professionals the highest possible return on recovered materials.

“It is always rewarding to be recognized by your customers– and we take great pride in this award,” said Morgan Kerrissey, President of Garfield Refining Company. “We put a tremendous amount of energy and attention into improving our customer’s refining experience year after year, and seeing those efforts appreciated by so many dentists across the country is always the ultimate gratification.”
