"Sent in my scrap to the refining company who had formed a partnership with a dental supply distributor and was told I was getting approximately $3700.00 for the scrap. This seemed very low for the amount of scrap I turned in. The processed bar was sent back to me and I turned it in to Scientific Metals who I had read about in one of the journals and the payout for the same bar was just over $5700.00."

"I submitted my scrap for refining to a dental supplies rep whose company had partnered with a refiner. After receiving my scrap metal results and fully understanding ALL of the fees and deductions, I decided to have my melted bar returned to me from the company. I submitted this same bar to Scientific Metals and received about 40% more."

“We used Scientific Metals each December from 2013-2015 and received a substantial amount of money each of those years. In 2016, by accident we mistakenly sent our scrap to a different company and received about 65% less than what we received at the exact same time the previous year with Scientific Metals with a similar amount of scrap. A costly mistake.“

“If you want an honest return for your scrap metal, think Scientific Metals. Several years ago, had my scrap assessed by one of the “premier” refining companies and it was unbelievable the difference in value assayed later by Scientific Metals. It’s a no brainer.”

"Scientific Metals has no sales reps who get a percentage of the scrap value. This means dentists get a higher reimbursement."

Dr. Don Nimz, DMD

"Wow, fast , accurate and better return than any refining company I have worked with in the 35 years of dentistry! Thank you."

Dr. Mark McClure, DDS

"Simple, no layers of “salesmen” to pay, and the best return on your scrap. Simple."

"My staff was reluctant to switch and try Scientific Metals because they said our current refiner had the lowest refining fees. They said we  usually got between $400-600$. Sent in our scrap to Scientific Metals and received a check for $1247.00."

" I just sent Scientific Metals my first batch, and I wish I would have sent them my previous one too. This batch was about half the size of the previous one but the payout was about ten times as much.   Thank you Scientific Metals for being one of the seemingly last refining companies with honor and integrity. You have won my continued business, and I will be singing your praise to all my colleagues as well".

"I have never endorsed a company or product. That’s simply been my motto and choice for over a decade in my professional career lecturing and treating patients. I now make an exception to my rule recommending to you Scientific Metals. Being around dentistry most of my life, I believed I understood the value of the scrap metal I had acquired. When I phoned Scientific Metals I told them that I thought I had “X” amount of value in my metal scrap. Within a short time after sending it, I received a phone call from Scientific Metals. They said, “ Doctor, you have 10 times “X” here.” How easy it would have been to be elusive, false, or deceptive. I was amazed and grateful. It makes me wonder about all the other times I returned scrap elsewhere. That’s my story. I hope it finds you well wherever you are."

"I would like to thank AAOMS for having Scientific Metals for the approved refining program for AAOMS members. I have found them to be an honest, fair and reliable company. I highly recommend the company and their service. I feel this Approved Program with Scientific Metals provides an important service for AAOMS members. I have recommended them to all my partners at Atlanta Oral and Facial Surgery."

"Scientific Metals has the best metal refining program we have found."

Dr. Edward J. Urig, Jr., DMD

"I just wanted to send a quick note to thank you for your great service and your company. I have used another refinery for my scrap metals in the past and I decided to use your company this time because it is associated with AAOMS. I never felt that I was getting a good reimbursement from this other company. To my great surprise I received 4 times the reimbursement from you than I got from your competition. I went back and compared the amount of metal I submitted last time with the other company and it was almost identical to the amount I submitted to your company. Thank you so much for the great service."

"I have always felt I was being taken advantage by dental scrap metal buyers until I sent my metals to Scientific Metals. I would question the other middle men and sales reps on fees and gold prices and they would always give me the run around.  I received a prompt and fair payment from Scientific Metals along with a clear and transparent explanation and breakdown. I am very pleased with the service and communication I received from Dave Weinberg and Scientific Metals".

They are very timely in supplying precious metal needs that I have wanted. They have had a very positive impact on my overall position.”

"We were not satisfied with the scrap settlement offer of $1610.00 when we gave our office scrap to our dental supply distributor rep who told us they had a joint venture with a refining company.  We requested they return to us the melted bar and we sent it off to a  Scientific Metals who I had read about in Dentaltown. Results - about 35% higher dollar settlement from Scientific Metals - $2190.00."

"Just a note to let you know that you guys "knocked it out of the park" AGAIN!!! Our assay on our dental scrap came back to be more than we expected for the second time. We have used other refiners in the past, and we have been consistently disappointed in either the service or the "sketchy" results. Thank you for the fast service and "family business" feel that you guys put forth. Our Dr. (Roy Davis) is the BEST!! Whatever we get back from you guys gets divided evenly among the staff. Therefore everyone one in the office is on board with saving the tiniest bit of scrap they find. This last batch yielded $1,300.00 per employee!! Now that's a nice surprise!! Thanks again, and have a great day!!

"Wow!!! How exciting!! That's more than we were guessing. In the past with other refiners it was always way less than we expect. We are already working on our next batch."

"Dave, I just wanted you to know that I am extremely happy with the service your company has provided my practice for the recovery and reimbursement for used scrap metals. I have on occasion used other scrap metal recovery companies but none has matched your exacting standards and thoroughness in documenting the metals recovered. Thanks again - and I would like to request another prepaid shipment container to prepare my next shipment for Scientific Metals."

“About two months ago a company rep came by the office and wanted to buy my scrap metal. I was interested to see what my scrap was worth, so he weighed it out and offered me a significant sum in cash. I wasn’t in a hurry to get rid of it, so I said no and put it back in the drawer. About a month later I saw an advertisement for Scientific Metals in Dentaltown Magazine. I sent my scrap in and was astonished to find that it was worth about three times more than what the other rep had offered in cash. Thank you Scientific Metals”

Dr. Marcus Barnett, DDS

“Sent in my scrap to Scientific Metals and the settlement amount was for $2206.34. This was more than double the amount of the offer I received just a few weeks earlier from a different refining company rep.  Thank you Scientific Metals.”

“A breath of fresh air finally knowing what the true value of my scrap is. No more relying on someone weighing it and “guessing” the assay. Thanks Again.”

"After reading about Scientific Metals for dental scrap in Dentaltown Magazine, I couldn't resist sending in a little cup of old crowns to see what I could get for it. My assistant expected under a hundred bucks and my bosses thought it would be a little more. Needless to say everyone was floored when I got a check for about $ 1500.00. Scientific Metals RULES!! I strongly encourage any of you guys who have some old scrap lying around to give them a try. You won't be disappointed."

"We are receiving much more for our returns with you than we ever have before. We’ve always used the same “drop by” rep who only separated the scrap into “white” and “yellow”  before and paid us cash on the spot. Our office did this for the previous 40 YEARS before I got here! Once I joined the team, I didn’t think that that company, rep and “method” were providing us a very good (or honest!) deal, so shortly after I started working here I started researching alternatives and found out about you from Dentaltown.  When I read our staff the email results of the refining just now (Dr. W. generously splits the $ results of our scrap returns among the staff), they said, “Make SURE we save the information for that new place you are sending our scrap metal to.” It truly is significantly more. The assay is a much fairer process. Our office is thrilled with how easy you guys make it to send in our returns, how nice, friendly, and helpful you all are, and especially the much larger checks we receive! I will be leaving, but Dr. Willhide and Heritage Dental will be staying with Scientific Metals for keeps."

"I recently sent in a large amount of scrap and was so happy with the entire process. You staff handled my initial phone call with great professionalism, the Fed Ex pickup was prompt, and, most importantly, I received a check in about a week for an amount that greatly exceeded my expectations! I feel very lucky to have seen the article in Dentaltown that inspired me to call you. I will use no other in the future. Thanks"

Dr. Anthony Sciascia, DDS

"I recently submitted a substantial amount of dental scrap to Scientific Metals for refinement. Naturally, I was a bit nervous about sending 20 years worth of gold scraps off to be assayed. I was also a bit skeptical of all refining companies after being ripped off by another company many years ago. The endorsement by the Wisconsin Dental Association gave me some confidence that I was dealing with an honest, legitimate company. My first phone call to Mr. Weinberg dissolved all of my apprehension in proceeding. I was very impressed with the personal, honest service that I received throughout the entire process. A Fed-X label was sent to me and my shipment was insured. There was a follow-up e-mail when the shipment was received and also when my settlement check and bullion were being shipped to me. I couldn't be happier with the professionalism and security that I witnessed at every step."

"After years of trading in my scrap metal with a very popular refiner, your company has shown itself to be honest and fair. Even with the higher metal prices, my reimbursement with you was still a lot larger than with similar weights of material in the past." You've also been a pleasure to deal with.
