Reliability – Downtime is the enemy and lost revenue is hard to recover and can have long term detrimental effects on Practice profitability. When researching dentist chairs find out what products have a large and well established market share. The reason companies have built up a large market share is normally consistent with long term customer satisfaction and loyalty to a brand based on a trouble free ownership experience.
UK based warehouse – It is also important to make sure the manufacturer you choose has an established long term presence in the UK market and that their warehouse carries suitable quantities of spare parts. These parts should be able to be shipped instantly to prevent downtime and lost revenue to your practice if a fault occurs.
Ask your Peers – Don’t be afraid to ask your dentist friends their experience with different brands. If you have selected a brand then ask your friends who may have that brand what the ownership experience has been like. Always make sure if you are asking your friends about their experience that they have followed a regular maintenance protocol. There isn’t a lot of point asking someone who neglects their equipment about its performance.
