We are Piotr
and Goska Antonczak
and together we run two dental practices in Devon. The
difficulties we found in establishing these surgeries gave
rise to our vision for GoTrade. When we moved to the UK
several years ago, Goska with substantial experience in
dentistry and Piotr having had a very successful career in
engineering, we decided to set up our own dental practice.
We needed to become established as
quickly as possible to achieve income generation so we took
over an existing practice which needed extensive
we thought it could not be that difficult to source our equipment
and design our surgeries...but we were wrong. What we found was a
minefield of difficulties and frustrations... We found that the
prices of equipment were not only exorbitant but delivery was easily
delayed. In these times of global production we found most
manufacturers outsource the manufacturing of components to other
factories located in other countries. A logistical nightmare of
delays and missing components can ensue. We felt this also had
serious consequences for quality assurance and timing.
We found that equipment was supplied without any consideration of
the compatibility with existing systems such as electrics for multi
media systems, plumbing and drainage. We needed the design of
ergonomic surgeries that would work with the existing building
structure but most of all work well for our dentists. We found few
suppliers actually provide full installation services or consultancy
on how the surgery can be designed to the maximum benefit of
patients and dentists.
We found that the builders, suppliers and the engineers had little
or no understanding of the dentists’ needs - each worked according
to their own agenda. As dentists we needed the work to be carried
out competently, efficiently and quickly so that we could get on
with providing our patients with high level dental expertise. Our
dentists did not want to have to worry about plumbing and electrical
details. We ideally needed a one stop shop to take away all the
And so GoTrade was established...
