Titanium alloys successfully used in orthopedics might be optimized for stents. What new material groups do you see being applied in stent fabrication?

1.While researching for medical supplies and dental supplies, I found New Line Medical. They have no user reviews section for their products, so I'm unsure how to rate their products. Can anyone help?
2.Does anyone know where I can find a good dental supplies company?
