  • Why would I get an error message saying 'The status of your account may have changed...'?

    There are 2 primary reasons your account is suspended.  The first is a lapsed account.  Accounts are suspended if the office has not ordered in 18 months.  To reactivate,  email crestoralbaccount.im@pg.com, confirm office name, address, phone, email address and account will be reactivated and ready for orders.

    The second reason an account is suspended is due to collections.  For invoiced offices, payment is due 30 days from the date the order is shipped.  There is a due date on every invoice.  If you send in a check, make sure you plan on ~5 days for mailing depending on your location.  If you pay online using the link on crestoralbproshop.com, payment is posted the following day. 

    Payments must be posted for the account to be reactivated.  If you are seriously past due or sent to our collection agency, you will need to pay for your orders using a credit card for 12 months once the account has been reinstated.

Promotions

  • What are the current promotions and codes

    Because our promotions change frequently, please check the banners in ProShop or contact customer service for a list of active Promotions at 1-800-543-2500 (Option 1) or email crestoralbproshop.im@pg.com.  Some Promotions require automatic shipments and minimum order and quantity requirements.

Auto-Shipments

  • What is an Auto Shipment?

    Automatic shipments can be set up to automatically order the products you use on a regular basis.  You will be able to pick the products, including Patient Bundles, and specify the quantities, frequency and preferred delivery day.  You will also be able to manage your Auto Shipments from Proshop.

  • What is the benefit of an auto-shipment?  Are there savings associated with auto-shipments?

    Automatic shipments are a great convenience for the office so you don’t run out of brushes or have to remember to log in or call in to order.  It is very important to correctly estimate the number of brushes and the frequency of shipments so you are receiving your next shipment right before you may run out of product.  You may have to slightly adjust the quantity or the number of orders each year until you get it just the way you want it.

    Some of our promotions require the office to be on automatic shipments.  They may also require only certain premium toothpastes and a minimum number of orders each year.  Additionally, shipping is always free when you are on an automatic shipment plan.  Last, once you get the correct quantity and order frequency adjusted, you won’t have to pay expedited shipping for fear of running out of product.

  • Do I get a notification that an auto-shipment is on its way?  How long do I have to make a change to my next shipment?

    If we have a current and correct email address on file, you will receive an “Advanced Shipment Notification” approximately 30 days prior to estimated delivery.  You can make changes to your Auto Shipment up to 8 days prior to expected delivery day. ProShop will actually tell you the last day you can make a change for it to be applied to the “next order”.   Or if you prefer, contact customer service at 1-800-543-2577 (Option 1) or email Crestoralbpro.im@pg.com for assistance with your Auto Shipment.
