Why is it the right time to introduce Mawzi?


Dental Clinics

The birth of a new dental clinic starts with an installation of the dental chair, starting the long-term relationship between the dentist and technician. Compared to a few decades ago, due to market consolidation, clinics have now become a one-stop shop handling a wider range of treatment procedures, from hygiene, aesthetics, orthodontics to surgery and implantology. As opposed to managing a single chair clinic, owners of dental practices have to deal with greater operational complexity at many levels. To ensure successful dental practice, it is crucial to manage patient scheduling, consumables, team coordination, partnerships, and equipment procurement and maintenance effectively. For example, poorly maintained equipment can disrupt dental practices by causing appointment delays or cancellations, revenue loss, customer dissatisfaction, increased workloads, and financial instability.

Adding to that is the generational shift: millennials now represent a growing share of dental clinic owners and decision makers and they want to break free from inefficiencies of the past and integrate new tools to elevate not only their clinic but also the well-being of their team.

Distributors

The landscape is similar from a distributor perspective. In Belgium, there are about 6500 dental clinics and 40 distributors of dental equipment. These distributors typically have a team of 2-3 technicians, providing after-sales support to approximately 200 to 600 clinic locations on average. This is no small feat, as dental clinics opt to forgo recommended technical servicing on some of their core equipment with the misconception of keeping costs as low as possible. On the other hand, after-sales servicing teams do their best to keep their dental clinic customers happy. But they are stretched thin and stressed by overwhelming workloads and unpredictable last-minute work requests. 

Mawzi is here to address these bottlenecks and give tools for efficient bidirectional communication between clinics and distributors, along with building audience-specific features to aid and elevate both clinic and distributors' daily operations. It is there to change the perspective from "If it is not broken, don't fix it" to "Let's prevent the breakdown and perform consistent maintenance" mindset.

Connecting dentists with their distributors with ease

This already covers 40-45% of the Belgium dental equipment market share and more than 2750 clinics, comprising over 40% of the market.


User Research


After running workshops with 10 different distributors, Mawzi took a personalized approach to its research by directly conversing with several technicians, focusing on understanding the unique challenges and requirements these technicians face in their day-to-day work. This helped to develop the first prototype of app workflow to include the features necessary to technicians' daily service work.

To identify top challenges and frustrations dentists experience in their practice, Mawzi conducted market research in scope of Societe Medecin Dentaire Congress 2023, the largest biannual event for French speaking dentists in Belgium. The event took place on October 12-14, involving 850 dentists. The answers gathered from 85 dentists and 10 assistants revealed the equipment maintenance to be one of top 3 most pressing pain points, shaping the MVP and drawing a 2-year roadmap for Mawzi's prime features aimed at helping clinics and their teams.
