Video Testimonials


I absolutely LOVE Mari's List! It was perfect for my startup office. I love the ease of being able to order what I want, when I want it... without having to go through a dental rep. The Facebook Group is so valuable and I love the variety of vendors there are to work with. Highly recommend!

I love the savings that Maris list has given us. We are not a huge office but the subscription has more than paid for itself after only a month! Doctors opening a new office or needing equipment should definitely consider joining.

– Dr. Melanie Wang, San Diego, CA
Member since: 2015

I've always been very skeptical about 'buying groups' or membership-related companies or organizations. After speaking with Mari and hearing that offices were saving so much, the decision to sign-up was a no-brainer!

In fact, I immediately saved a ton of money within the first few months! Not only do you reduce your overhead, you don't have to suffer through website after website shopping for the best deals. Everything is incredibly well organized and most of her vendors have monthly specials which save us even more! Thank you so much for making everything so simple.

– Dr. Robert Gire, La Habra, CA
Member since: 2016

Running a multi-location office as a solo practitioner is hard! I'm constantly balancing and juggling multiple things all at once and worrying about where to purchase equipment and supplies should not be one of them!

My monthly supply costs pre-Mari's List were out of control, and I am so grateful to Mari and her team for all their efforts to vet vendors and negotiate the best value for their members. During COVID, Mari and her team worked extra hard to support their members and make sure we all had adequate access to PPE. Thank you, thank you, and thank you to Mari and her all-star support team!

I became a member of Mari’s List after talking to several colleagues and hearing about their practice savings. I started my practice from scratch and have always been conscientious about keeping our overhead in check, but after joining Mari’s List we immediately saved thousands of dollars in supply costs.

However, with time my focus became diverted to other practice concerns; we become complacent and thought that we could find similar deals and discounts on our own. Because of this distraction, we let our Mari’s list membership lapse and it wasn’t long before I realized that our expenses were rising. We re-enrolled and I am happy to report that our supply costs are now trending in the right direction...

The orthodontic landscape is changing and most orthodontists recognize the essential nature of controlling their overhead and improving their practice efficiencies to remain competitive and profitable. I feel that membership with Mari’s List is one way orthodontists can do this. Mari’s List is more than a buyers club.

Mari and her team are personally invested in your practice success and they serve as a strong advocate for orthodontic best practices. Mari brings years of experience and thousands of orthodontic relationships and harnesses her expertise on your behalf! I strongly recommend Mari and add my testimonial to thousands of other orthodontic teams in encouraging Mari’s List membership.

– Dr. Chad Rowan, Merced, CA
Member since: 2018

Mari's List has been a great help! Not only does it do the obvious and save you money year over year, it also created a network of doctors that learn and grow from each other! It was an innovative idea that changed the industry. Thank you for your help and support always!

– Dr. Imad Maleeh, Victorville, CA

I had known about Mari's List for years but never considered joining, because I was convinced I was already getting the absolute best deals due to my amazing bargaining skills which go back for generations, and I could not see value in joining.

About 6 months ago, while looking to buy an expensive piece of equipment it was brought to my attention that if I was a member I would receive a big discount. The savings would cover my membership for several years, so I figured I'd join, get the discount, and go from there.

As I was joining and getting ready to make that equipment purchase, Mari was extremely helpful and available. I felt that her advice and suggestions were sincere, unbiased, and had my best interest in mind. Ultimately, I ended up not even buying the item I joined for in the first place, but here is what I learned about Mari's List:

  1. The prices offered to members were significantly better than my pricing on the same products from the same companies. This is coming from someone who always tries to get the best deal.
  2. The services offered to members such as the study group, access to people in the know, etc. has made a big impact on my practice and my bottom line.
  3. Having Mari advocate for me with a particular company personally saved me a significant amount of money (5 figures). She went out of her way, during the holidays, to help a very new member in an unexpected but much-appreciated way! I don't believe I would have gotten the outcome I wanted without her help.
  4. One of the most impressive benefits is the VIP treatment I've received from every vendor on Mari's List. Maybe she picks amazing vendors, maybe they are worried about disappointing her members, but every interaction started with outstanding service, led to significant savings, and ended with the comment "we love working with Mari's List members".

This is my personal unsolicited experience. I am sharing it because I would have joined sooner if I knew better.

– Dr. Yossi Bar-Zion, Newbury Park, CA

What I love about Mari's List (aside from the breadth of vendors, monthly specials, the everyday value we get with items that we use every single appointment) is the way Mari conducts her business. She's a champion for our specialty, and she always does her best to make things right.

When a company isn't performing, she holds them accountable and goes to bat for you. When a company is performing well, she still keeps at them to give us the best value. Even though her company has grown, I feel she's available for touching base and is always there for us.

– Dr. Jeff Kwong, El Dorado Hills, CA
Member since: 2016

Signing up with Mari's List was one of the BEST business decisions I have made. Managing the inventory of 7 orthodontic offices is no easy task, and Mari and her team have been my go-to resource for everything regarding orthodontic supplies. They are always ahead of the game in terms of quality and price from different orthodontic vendors. Beyond that, Mari is an absolute expert on every product and makes herself flexible and available for any questions that I have. Invaluable resource. I am so grateful to have found Mari's List. Thank you!

– Koosha Samani, Huntington Park, CA

Mari's List has taken so much stress off the startup process. Instead of spending hours searching for the best deal through tons of vendors, I can quickly find the best-priced items from vetted vendors. Opening my first startup was stressful enough, and it was a no-brainer to join this group to take advantage of their resources!

– Dr. Ronak Mody, Lake Forest, CA
Member since: 2023

Signing up for Mari's List was one of the best decisions I made as a startup practice eight years ago. The wealth of knowledge and experience she and her team has to share will help any practice level up. I also love how responsive Mari is, it truly shows her dedication to the success of all her doctors.

– Dr. Cherissa Chong, San Jose, CA
Member since: 2016


Since joining Mari's List a year ago we have saved over $10,000. Definitely saved the membership fee and then some within the first few months of signing up. Mari has taught our team how to order smartly to save the most on products and shipping.

If you enjoy saving money on great products that you already use every day then sign up! If you want to work with a team that works hard to ensure your experience with these companies is excellent then sign up today. Thank you, Mari!

– Dr. Bradley Goings, Fort Collins, CO
Member since: 2016

Mari's List has been a game changer for our start up practice. As we were developing our vendor list, it was beneficial to take advantage of the deals but also to know we are using trusted companies that have been well-vetted by Mari and her team. The signup process is seamless with each company and we've seen significant savings over the years. I would highly recommend Mari’s List to any owner Orthodontist!

– Dr. Carly Schiro, Loveland, CO
Member since: 2021

Mari and the whole team at Mari's List helped me save multiples of the membership fee when building my new office. Having an advocate for your practice like Mari's List means you will always get the best deals from every vendor.

There is no way I could have found the vendors or negotiated the discounts that were so easily accessible to me after joining the group. I have also found the Facebook group beneficial for hearing about new products or deals and have found continued value from the on-going savings the vendors provide.

I think everyone should take advantage of this professional service to help streamline their ordering and save money while continuing to use quality products.

– Dr. Colby Gage, Parker, CO
Member since: 2019


Mari's List is a no brainer for any startup. Besides the MANY things I have been able to save money on, the forum alone is worth the membership. The forum has allowed me to save time price shopping and figuring out which products will work best in my office.

– Dr. Anuj Camanocha, Southington, CT
Member since: 2017

I have been a Mari’s List member since I purchased my practice years ago. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Mari and her team. Aside from saving us on obvious items like gloves and masks, Mari is extremely knowledgeable and helpful with the purchase of larger items like sterilizers.

She will only work with companies that stand by their products so you can make decisions on where to buy knowing she has your back should anything go wrong. She has always promptly answered any questions I have had over the years and is beyond helpful when needed. She and her team’s level of customer support is truly phenomenal.

She has helped me so much over the years, I couldn’t imagine growing my practice without her. I highly recommend Mari’s list.

– Dr. Deborah Griffin, Vernon, CT
Member since: 2017

I joined Mari's List soon after I purchased my two-location practice in 2017. My accountant was soon asking what I had done to decrease my supply costs so drastically! Not only do I save on my orthodontic supplies but also my general office supplies and even on appliances and TVs for my house. Every year I save enough to cover my membership fees many times over.

It's a no-brainer and I recommend Mari's List to all of my colleagues without hesitation!

– Dr. Mark Clauss, Watertown, CT
Member since: 2017

We all know the often-overused phrase “nobody does it better” to describe just about everything anyone does. But when it comes to saving orthodontists money on just about anything they need to run their practices, it applies to only one person, Mari Sawtelle.

Starting as a lab tech/dental assistant and working her way through various careers in orthodontics, she has done what no other person has in saving doctors’ money in running their offices. Many have tried with various promotional programs that basically just robbed Peter to pay Paul. You paid for all those coupons that bought you that overpriced TV!

Mari has done it differently. Her honest reputation in dealing with companies has afforded savings of dollars from over 160 companies all under Mari’s List.

Her program and team of five have served over thousands of offices for over 12 years. Time tested, truly nobody does it better than Mari!

– Dr. Bob Gange, Windsor, CT
Member since: 2017


Upon joining Mari's List, our savings were IMMEDIATE. We saved nearly $5,000 right out of the gate! Mari and her team are very personable and knowledgeable about the business of running an orthodontic practice.

She has fostered strong relationships with critical vendors in our field, such as Allure, Darby, and many more. Mari and her team have translated these alliances into impactful shared savings across orthodontic practices. Mari and her team are available, approachable, and delightful.

They genuinely share our goals of practice success and patient satisfaction. I enthusiastically recommend Mari's list to my colleagues!

– Dr. Baker Rawlins, Wilmington, DE
Member since: 2017


As new practice owners, We were constantly bombarded with people trying to get us to buy stuff. We always questioned, “Is this a good deal?”, “Is this the best place to order from?”, and even, “Are there any alternatives?” The amazing part of being a Mari’s List member is we no longer need to worry about the answers to these questions. I know I will be getting the best discount no matter what!

What we have found to be even greater than just getting a good deal is the Facebook Forum that we have access to by being a member. The ability to search for what product, equipment, or service you might be looking for and find the previous conversations that have already taken place saves so much time, that is worth the membership alone. Mari has always been very responsive and attentive to our needs. Honestly, it's a no brainer. Thank you, Mari, for everything!

– Drs. Taylor & Michael Vracar, Tallahassee, FL

If you are not part of Mari's list you need to be! I have been consistently impressed with the dedication Mari has not only to Orthodontics and the Mari's List group, but to the individual members as well. She and her team work tirelessly on your individual needs and the collective benefit of her members.

I can't tell you how many times she has been an advocate on my behalf and how hard she fights for the members. Recent examples include working with companies to help improve the quality of necessary products. I'm most impressed with how she goes to bat for all of the members to help make things right whenever it's needed.

A Mari's List membership is essential to help keep your costs down while providing the highest quality products for your patients, and team — taking your voice into a collective entity to provide you with excellent care and service through all your purchases.

– Dr. Michael Pickard, Moscow, ID
Member since: 2015

We have loved our Mari's List membership. It seems like a no-brainer. It was very easy to set up. Our savings on gloves alone more than makes up for the cost of membership, and it has been a big time saver for us as well. We spend much less time "shopping around" and we always feel confident that we are getting the best prices.

– Dr. Mary Hoffman, Boise, ID
Member since: 2023


I have been a Mari’s List member since I purchased my private practice in 2018. I continue to be a member not only for the significant cost savings on various products, but also because of the wisdom shared amongst the many ML members. Thank you, Mari and team, for working hard on behalf of all orthodontists!

– Dr. Josh Gilbert, Highland Park, IL
Member since: 2017


I'd like to commend every single one of you at Mari's List for the way you treat people. To an outside observer, one would think you were family or good friends with every single person you speak to. It's sincere. You can't fake that. You all truly have a passion for what you do, and I have great respect for that. You deserve every bit of success that comes your way because you treat people well. I sincerely hope every orthodontist in the country becomes Mari's List members, and I'll certainly do my best to encourage them. Thank you all so much for what you do and for helping our profession — and for doing it the way that you do it. It's amazing!

Stumbling into the Mari's List booth at the Winter AAO was the best thing I have done for my practice in a long, long time!

We are 1 month into using Mari's List vendors and are already saving money. Thank you so much for all that you do. You are a Godsend for my practice.

– Dr. Dave Cordes, Westfield, MA
Member since: 2019

I want to thank the team at Mari's List for the extraordinary help during this difficult time during the COVID-19 Pandemic. I joined the group in April 2020, and you have no idea the sense of relief I felt knowing where and how to order all the PPE and recommended supplies.

The Facebook group where we can read the most updated guidelines and recommendations has been a blessing. Thank you for the many hours of hard work putting everything together and getting us great deals. It's nice to have someone have your back! Being a business owner is already stressful enough. Many thanks!

– Dr. Daniela Toro, Burlington, MA

What an incredible surprise to find Mari's List! When I found out about the group, I couldn't wait to inform my team. The 'bracing team' at Kalamazoo Orthodontics was so pleased to begin to utilize Mari's List.

Mari's exceptional service and dedication to continual improvements, updates, and quality are second to none. We are very pleased to be involved with Mari and her incredible support team!

– Dr. Jay Bowman, Portage, MI
Member since: 2017

I joined Mari's List a few months ago and have already realized cost savings on so many products! The guidance and recommendations that I have received from Mari, her staff, and other members of Mari’s List have been a surprise bonus!

– Dr. Lisa Wendling, Flint Township, MI
Member since: 2024


When it comes to customer service and guest experience, I have very high standards. Mari and her team not only meet expectations but routinely find ways to EXCEED expectations time and time again.

Mari is kind, genuine, helpful and will always go out of her way to answer questions. We've been able to save so much in inventory costs all because Mari and her team have worked so hard on our behalf. So grateful for Mari and her team, and would highly recommend others to join.

– Dr. Grant Collins, Rochester, MN
Member since: 2015


I can’t tell you how pleased I am to be a member of Mari’s List again. Before I sold my practice in 2019, I used your service for many years and was saving tens of thousands of dollars every year. I knew that once I became a practice owner again I wanted to become a Mari’s List member for the great pricing as well as the knowledge shared amongst the members.

I was so excited to see how many more vendors you have added to the list, and in the first couple months I have already saved way more than my membership fee! A special thank you for being so involved in the business and making sure the vendors uphold their end of the bargain. Thanks again and I look forward to working with you for many years.

– Dr. Cooper Callaway, Crawford, MS
Member since: 2017


Working with Mari has been one of the most amazing experiences! Ordering and purchasing my supplies at rock bottom prices feels so good. It’s simply shocking how much a solo practitioner overpays for supplies.

With Mari, I always know that I am getting the best deal and get the benefit of her negotiations for her clients. Over several years it could easily add up to $100,000 in savings! Becoming her client is one of the best decisions that I have made for my practice in years.

– Dr. David Chenin, Henderson, NV
Member since: 2015

I love Mari's List because it saves me a ton of money on dental supplies and equipment. There's also a lot of other non-dental vendors on there as well. Mari continually adds new vendors all the time, so our membership just keeps getting better and better!

– Dr. Saoly Benson, Las Vegas, NV

As a new practice owner, reliable resources are invaluable. Mari and her team are the resources that I needed to update my office, maintain our supplies, get input on new purchases AND I ALWAYS get the feeling that they are looking out for my best interests. To docs lookin for a teammate that can connect the dots for purchasing - the only option is Mari's List. I am truly grateful!

– Dr. JB Peterman, Chatham, NJ

Mari has been extremely helpful at finding vendors when we need things and getting a great price

– Dr. Danielle Zeifman, Florham Park, NJ
Member since: 2021

After briefly discontinuing my membership this past year, I had the opportunity to compare my supply costs using the regular "discounted" pricing from vendors vs. Mari's List pricing.

In the first two weeks, on only two orders (gloves and BandLok), Mari's List pricing would have saved me nearly half my annual dues! That's a HUGE savings and needless to say, I rejoined right away.

Thank goodness Mari had the vision and perseverance to create Mari's List and negotiate wonderfully with vendors. Thank you Mari, Emily, and Team! I appreciate you!

– Dr. Carlyn Phucas, Marlton, NJ

Mari's List is a great value for any orthodontic practice! Mari's list offers great customer service and they only contract with reliable vendors. I have been a member since I opened my practice in 2022 and I am planning to be with them until I retire!

– Dr. Luis Gutierrez, Las Cruces, NM

New York

Signing up for Mari's List was the BEST step I took for my practice. It is like knowing you will have the best service offered with the best deals from the vendors listed, GUARANTEED!

If you have any difficulties with any of the orders or products, Mari is always available to extend her help. She takes it a step further by even reaching out to the vendor to ensure you are taken care of in the BEST WAY POSSIBLE. I had a problem with a piece of equipment and she went above and beyond when the problem recurred for me.

I know Mari and the team are only a text/email/phone call away and they will look after my practice as their very own. Mari's List is not just a buying group, it is a part of Sachdev Family Orthodontics family!

– Dr. Ameeta Sachdev, Garnerville, NY
Member since: 2017

Mari's List is tremendously helpful both in saving and helping to guide our office to the best resources in the orthodontic industry. This is helpful for seasoned owners to have consistent savings and new owners taking advantage of exclusive savings on new equipment.

– Dr. Leon Su, Rye, NY
Member since: 2022

I am absolutely obsessed with Mari's List... Best thing I ever did! Everyone in my office knows if they're not ordering from a company that is on Mari's List, then there better be a darn good reason for ordering it!

– Dr. Michael Sheinis, Huntington, NY
Member since: 2018

Not only do I save a ton of money with pre-negotiated rates at a ton of retailers, I have the peace of mind knowing I'll never overpay. Mari has saved me a ton of time (both mine and my staff's) from having to research a bunch of different options. Two big bonuses to me are access to the Facebook group where you can additionally save time looking for an item at the best price, and the newsletter which tells you about current specials.

– Dr. Dorie Frank, Port Washington, NY
Member since: 2021

I’ve been using Mari's List for years. Can't imagine life without it! We have saved a ton of money over the years, well over the annual fee for membership. Not only does it provide discounts, it also provides access to a group of like-minded orthodontists that help each other find the best, most cost-effective products that make our life easier. Grateful for the service, the members, and the amazing customer service they provide!

I've worked with Mari's List over the past 7 years in my solo practice and it has been an absolute pleasure! Their dedication to providing exceptional service and quality products has consistently exceeded our expectations. Not only have they streamlined our ordering process, but they have also saved me thousands of dollars through their competitive pricing and efficient solutions, from large equipment purchases to smaller disposables. Their team is always responsive, knowledgeable, and goes above and beyond to ensure our needs are met. We are grateful for their partnership and look forward to many more years of collaboration!

– Dr. Neal Patel, Shelby, NC
Member since: 2016

So. Much. Love. Without Mari's list, I don't think I would have been able to successfully open my new start up this year. With construction costs becoming astronomical and so many unforeseen expenses, I was running seriously low on funding for supplies, equipment, and working capital. The discounts through Mari's list literally saved me over $20,000 and allowed me to purchase what I needed and have money left over to actually run my practice. The savings have continued to add up and I am forever grateful for this amazing group. It has been an invaluable resource of information and guidance from the wonderful individuals that are a part of it. This is not a buyers group. This is a community. I cannot thank them enough.

– Dr. Elisabeth Brooks, Asheville, NC
Member since: 2023


Can’t say enough about how great Mari and her team have been for my office! Goes above and beyond with not only ordering and inventory advice but has connected me with the right people several times when needing guidance as a young owner doc! Joining her group is a must for all orthodontists!

– Luke Schweiss, Marysville, OH
Member since: 2018

I cannot express enough how grateful I am to have found Mari’s List! As a brand new business owner, every penny counts - their services have been an absolute game-changer for me.

One of the most remarkable aspects of working with Mari’s List is their ability to keep costs down without sacrificing quality. Their extensive network of suppliers and their expertise in negotiating deals ensured that I got the best possible prices for all the supplies I needed to kickstart my business.

Thanks to Mari’s List, I've been able to significantly reduce my overhead costs, allowing me to allocate more resources towards growing my business. I can confidently say that partnering with them was one of the best decisions I've made as a new business owner. Stop thinking about it and just do it!

Working with Mari was a game changer for our multi-location practice. My director of operations had what we felt was a good system, but Mari and her team were able to help us refine our approach into something even better than it was before!

Every practice strives for efficiency, and we have finally brought maximum efficiency to maintenance of ordering, inventory, and storage. The process was easy and the communication between Mari and my team was seamless!

– Dr. Andrew Appel, Philadelphia, PA
Member since: 2016

Mari and her team are the best! They are always there to answer any questions and concerns, and their responses are extremely fast. They bend over backward to provide the best service for us. Their great advice helps us select the best products while also saving a ton of money.

I would highly recommend Mari's List for anyone who is starting up or looking to reduce their overhead.

– Dr. Brian Zebrick, Lansdale, PA
Member since: 2016

Joining Mari’s List was a smart move for our practice. It is essential to spend wisely when bulk ordering supplies. Mari has not only made this an effortless task but has opened my staff and I up to many companies that have the same goal in mind.

Having only placed my first order, I already made up for the membership fee and then some. The benefits are limitless and the customer service given by Mari herself is exceptional.

She is hands-on throughout your partnership and is passionate about making your investment a success. I can guarantee any practice will feel the same way.

– Rachel Lopez, Clinical Coordinator at McGill Orthodontics

Mari's List helps TREMENDOUSLY! Without Mari, we would be spending thousands upon thousands over what we should be. Mari goes above and beyond to help us! Thank you, Mari`s List!

One of the best consultants I have used. I recouped her fee in a matter of weeks with savings on clinic supplies! No one works harder for the orthodontist than Mari.

– Dr. Richard Boyd, Columbia, SC
Member since: 2015


One of the most difficult tasks as a young orthodontist with a start-up practice is finding the best prices for orthodontic supplies.

Mari has the experience and the relationships to broker great deals on great products, and she is committed to regularly improving her list. The best part is that the price for membership is extremely reasonable.

– Dr. Kyle Fagala, Germantown, TN
Member since: 2015

Mari's List has been so helpful the first few months of practice ownership! I had no idea where to start on saving money on inventory - it's been a breeze with Mari's List helping us organize ordering and save money on materials.

– Dr. John Wilson, Jackson, TN
Member since: 2023

We couldn’t be happier with the savings we’ve experienced through Mari’s List. So far, we’ve saved almost $50,000 on clinical supplies compared to the first 6 months of last year and have been happier with the performance of the new products than we were with the old!

We’re currently ordering 99% of our clinical supplies from Mari’s list vendors. Clinical supplies now run us 4.5 to 5.0% of gross income. Before using Mari’s List in 2014 they were 8% and in 2013 they were 9%. All of the reps have provided terrific service as well as great quality products. They all seem happy to be affiliated with Mari’s List.

– Dr. Dan Merwin, Jackson, TN
Member since: 2015


Mari has been instrumental in the careers of successful orthodontists for her entire professional life. As a sales trainer, she helped ‘A’ Company become the premier orthodontic supplier before they were acquired and then did the same for Align.

Nowadays it is important to be efficient with our time and control our inventory expenses. Having Mari on your team gives you an ace in the hole for when trouble comes and time is of the essence. I highly recommend Mari and her services, my only hesitation is I hope she doesn’t get too busy for me!

– Dr. Andy Barron, Fort Worth, TX
Member since: 2015

I am reviewing year end 2020 financials and wanted to once again thank you for creating Mari's List. I am extremely grateful for your company, knowing that I am getting fair prices for good quality products without any hassle.

My clinical supply cost for 2020 was 3.8% of net collections, and that included a 2-year supply of metal brackets that I love (GC Legend Series).

We are saving over $20,000 a year compared to the previous owner's ordering patterns without a drop in product quality or patient care.

Taking the time to make full use of a Mari's List membership is by far the best ROI in orthodontics. I will literally be sending my kids to college with the savings your efforts provide me!

– Dr. Brian Bolerjack, Lakeway, TX
Member since: 2016

I am a new member of Mari's List and the savings are far greater than I could have expected. I kept hearing about Mari's List but never took the time to look into it... BIG MISTAKE!

I wish I had joined years ago! Mari is extremely knowledgeable and responsive if you are looking for a vendor or advice. We have been extremely pleased with the customer service and ease of the vendors that she has selected to be part of the group.

I thought it would take me awhile to get my girls to consistently research and order from these new vendors but everyone is so excited by the savings that they always check the Mari's List vendors first. I would highly recommend joining!

– Dr. Patty Fleming, Garland, TX
Member since: 2017

Mari worked one on one in our office with our inventory manager creating a fully customized analysis. Her finely tuned recommendations fit our needs, and she uncovered even more savings by spending time with us.

– Dr. Roxanne Robertson, Corpus Christi, TX
Member since: 2014

Mari shares our passion for helping people with their smiles. You probably know that she has one of the most impressive resumes in orthodontics, but did you know that she is also a fierce tambourine player? We have been friends for over 25 years so I can tell you a lot of good things about Mari, but the bottom line is this: Mari knows ortho, and she can save you money.

– Dr. Bud Luecke, San Antonio, TX

We joined Mari's List in May and WOW! Mari's List savings on supplies and equipment has already had a huge impact on reducing our overhead. Mari is just awesome and her in-depth knowledge of products and the "business of orthodontics" is unmatched. We have found the Facebook forum especially valuable for real peer reviews about new and established products and equipment.

She is always available for questions and recommendations about various products. I especially appreciate how receptive she is about contacting non-Mari's List vendors recommended by member doctors for discounts for our group. We are very pleased with Mari's List and absolutely recommend her services.

– Dr. David Taylor, McAllen, TX
Member since: 2017

I was introduced to Mari's list a year into practice ownership, at the time when we were looking at every little expense and trying to grow the practice. It came at the perfect time when I had just lost my office manager who did all the ordering for me and all this load was now upon me. The best things - apart from the savings of course - are the wealth of knowledge and all the resources that are provided in the group. Also, the personal relationship with and accessibility to Mari and her team who are willing to help at every step of the way. I do not dread ordering any more and do not miss my OM at all.

– Dr. Kirat Sodhi, Irving, TX

I have known and worked with Mari for many years, so when she came out with a preferred buying group and “her list”, I was quick to jump on board!

Being a part of Mari’s List has saved my office thousands of dollars over the last 5 years that we have been members. It is a great investment, and especially in today’s tight market, it is a wise choice for any orthodontist.

I started to work closely with Mari Sawtelle a few years ago, but from the beginning of our negotiations, I was impressed by her professionalism and willingness to help! She has been extremely helpful for me and my practice.

Her advice along with the discounts offered has made our practice run more efficiently. I highly recommend working with her, and I know you will find her very supportive in many ways.

The discounts that Mari’s List has been able to negotiate are incredible! Not only has Mari been able to secure relationships with well-known dental and orthodontic companies, but she has also brought on other businesses to help with office supplies, marketing, and technology. Mari has negotiated great deals for everything from orthodontic instruments to ink toner to telephone services! It’s nice to have one source that you can trust will give you the best deals, regardless of the volume of your order.

Mari has a wealth of experience, having been in the orthodontic supply business for nearly 30 years. She brings bulletproof systems, keen negotiating skills, and fastidious attention to detail when analyzing orthodontic supply purchasing decisions for an office.

I think every doctor would benefit from working with Mari and joining Mari's List.

I'm so glad I joined "Mari's List" this year. Mari is an expert in the orthodontic field, and she gave me great tips. I was able to save thousands of dollars by joining her list.

I've been practicing Orthodontics as an associate for over 10 years, and now I'm starting my own practice. The process has been equally as exciting as demanding. Having Mari's list as a resource and her advice has helped me tremendously. Thank you, Mari! .

I have known Mari since 2008 and it is always a pleasure to work with her. I have great respect for her knowledge of the orthodontic industry, her professionalism and her passion for securing high-quality orthodontic products at the most affordable prices. I recently purchased a practice, so when it came time to evaluate orthodontic supplies, I decided to utilize Mari’s List.

With Mari’s help, we immediately identified and realized cost-savings with our inventory. Mari is very prompt and attentive when we have questions or need advice. I would highly recommend Mari’s List for anyone who would like to reduce inventory costs without sacrificing high-quality orthodontic products!

Mari's List has been a total game-changer for my startup journey! Mari has seriously got our backs by making sure that each vendor provides quality services and products! I have appreciated her guidance and her fast responses when we had questions! Big shout out to Mari and her team!

Mari, you are an absolute angel for the orthodontic world. Thank you so much for your dedication to our profession, for sharing your knowledge, for building a wonderful community that is a fantastic resource for our practice every single day.

The membership saves us thousands and thousands of dollars every year but most importantly has given us peace of mind knowing that we are getting great quality, affordable products. We appreciate you and your team, your hard work and the very long hours you have been putting in during the COVID-19 crisis. May God bless you, your team, and your family with a long, healthy, happy life!

Mari's List® revolutionized the way we manage inventory. As the head of a buying group, Mari negotiates discounts with top vendors to save us thousands of dollars each year. You will be hard-pressed to find anyone who knows the orthodontic supply industry better than Mari.

After the initial setup, Mari continues to be an invaluable resource. As staff in my office changed, she's always been available to coach additional people to ensure we are as organized as we can be.

As a new business owner and a father, I don't have time to fully research every single product from every single vendor. If a product is on Mari's List, I can be confident it is a high-quality product at a fair price. That confidence allows me to advance my practice faster, as I know she's already done the screening to weed out products not worth my time.

If you are an orthodontist looking to save money, get higher quality products for the same price, get better organized, or get the unbiased scoop on great new products, joining Mari's List is a no-brainer.

I heard about Mari's List for the first time in 2015 when I was working an associate job and I was impressed by the idea of having someone finding the best deals for you. During my visits to the AAO, I would always visit her booth and hoped that one day when I had my own office I would join.

That day finally came and I called the office expecting a secretary pick up or I would have to leave a voicemail. To my surprise, Mari answered the phone! We had great conversation and Mari was so down to earth and made me feel comfortable. I found that being a member gave me so much more than just a special on almost everything to get my office going.

Mari's List also provided many resources to learn from colleagues in the member forum. The savings I've received from signing up has already paid for itself. I highly recommend Mari's List to anyone, especially start-ups. Thank you so much for all the hard work you and Emily have done!

Mari's List has been great for my practice! When I built an office from the ground-up, the membership dues paid for itself for many years in that time alone. But aside from that, every year more vendors are added, making the value even greater as time goes on. When there are problems that arise with a vendor (no one's perfect, right?), Mari and her team go to bat for you and will make sure you are taken care of. Thank you Mari's List!

I heard about Mari’s list about a year before I ended up joining it. I waited so long because I thought that I had already negotiated some good deals with the vendors and would be surprised if the membership fee would cover any additional savings. I finally got around to talking with Mari and I was completely wrong. Not only were the savings huge I was very impressed with her knowledge on the products.

However, the thing that I appreciate the most is that she is just not adding every vending company under the sun to be part of her list and that she spends time vetting each supplier and making sure every offering on her list is a quality product. That is awesome and gives me peace of mind when trying new products.

Mari's List introduced a paradigm shift in purchasing orthodontic products. I am always impressed with how responsive Mari is in helping to find the right products for my practice as well as following up with the vendors to make sure that we receive the products on time. Kudos to Mari and her team for creating such an AMAZING company.

As an orthodontic clinical consultant, I work with clients to increase clinical efficiency, inventory and cost control. Mari's List is a fantastic tool I recommend to help my clients to help them in all these areas.

I know every time I refer a client to Mari she will take great care of them. Saving time ordering and getting quality items with great discounts are huge benefits for my clients and Mari comes through every time!

Her years in the industry have given her an in-depth knowledge of the best products and resources that few others have. I am honored to call Mari my friend and colleague!
