They offer a wide range of products to the general public, private healthcare sector; including dentistry and the NHS, as well as large industrial companies and vital public sector organisations.
Drawing on over 7 years of experience their highly trained sales team takes pride in sharing their niche knowledge to assist customers with any queries they may have.
Face Mask Store managing director, Sam, says “Nowadays you speak to a robot more often than a human, we want to change that here. If you want to check our stock levels, bulk pricing options or ask a technical question, we always answer the phone”
Listening to the Customer
Working out which face mask is best can feel like quite a tricky task. Within minutes of searching the internet you can find yourself feeling more clueless than when you started.
Every web page you click on offers a new selection and product descriptions littered with niche references and certification numbers.
There is simply no ‘one size fits all’ mask and finding the perfect fit will depend on several variables and personal preferences. For example – face shape, mask size, strap design, material, intended use, the list goes on.
Renowned for its excellent customer service and competitive pricing, The Face Mask Store provides the customer with an easy to use platform and a customer service team, always on hand to navigate the mask maze.
Filling the Void
Understandably, the increase in demand of FFP3 and FFP2 face masks in the public sector has caused dramatic shortages to occur not only within the NHS, but also within dental clinics.
Many trade customers have found their usual online retailers being out for stock since the pandemic began.
The Face Mask Store fills this void by supplying the same premium FFP3 and FFP2 grade face masks used by healthcare workers to both small and large dental establishments across the UK. They offer quantities that are suitable for each dental clinic, while remaining at a fair price and offering bulk discounts where they can.
Face Mask Store director, Victoria, explains ‘We have found that many of our UK dental clients have face-fitted their staff for the same specific face masks, such as the 3M 9320+ FFP2 face mask or 3M 9330+ FFP3 face mask. This is where a pinch point in supply can inevitably occur. We have modelled our purchasing based on the supply dentists require, this has proven vital for our ongoing success with repeat business’.
As well as the more popular FFP3 and FFP2 grade face masks, The Face Mask Store has also branched out to offer a range of specifically designed products. As Victoria explains: ‘We have taken on board our clients requests and branched out to offer new and exciting niche technologies. Many clients come to us with specific requirements, such as needing reusable medical grade face masks, antiviral graphene protection, masks to aid the hard of hearing and medical grade pediatric face masks. These are now all requests that are able to fulfil’.

Sam, the Managing Director at the Face Mask Store explains ‘until now our main advertisements have been through word of mouth, of which we are extremely grateful for, however we want to spread to word further a field and get our name out there as a trusted and valued supplier of PPE, particularly in the dental care industry’.
