To run successfully and profitably any kind or type of health-care set-up, it is mandatory that the basic principle of practice management are referred, analyzed, applied, evaluated and adapted. In any health-care organization/set-up, medical or dental, a major portion of the financial budget is spent on the acquisition, storage, and distribution of supplies and equipment’s i.e. materials management. Materials management aims at providing an effective and efficient management of supplies and equipment’s, so that there is availability of the right materials, at the right time, to the right place, at the least cost. The inventory control techniques (ICT’s) are among the commonly applied principles/techniques for materials management. These techniques ensure that there is adequate stock of the required essential items; to maintain their uninterrupted supply. These techniques have been applied and are being followed successfully for the management of pharmacy/medical stores in hospitals. This article reviews these ICT’s and emphasizes their equivocal importance, practical application and proposed implications in dental practice management; for an efficient management of dental stores/inventory in any type of dental-associated health-care set-up.
