3 Unique Ways to Furnish and Enhance Your Dental Office That You May Not Have Considered

portable dental chairEvery dentist knows how expensive it can be to furnish an entire office, and it costs even more to maintain a professional appearance. Equipment is constantly wearing down or breaking, which is why you need to be proactive when furnishing your office.

To make your job just a bit easier, there are a few "alternative" furnishing options that you should consider. Instead of solely investing in normal used dental chairs, you can give yourself a bit of flexibility with portable dental chairs, although these are normally used in dental outreach operations and other similar situations. That being said, you can also invest in dental chair upholstery, avoiding the need to buy a whole new set of chairs.

Additionally, used dentist chairs and tons of other equipment can all be obtained in one fell swoop with the help of complete office packages. It can take weeks to buy each piece of equipment individually, and these all-in-one packages will give you much more time to focus on your business. Here's a quick overview of these unique ideas and how they can benefit your office:

  • Dental chairs Retail costs for "top-of-the-line" dental patient chairs range from $7,000 to $9,000, but this is a truly absurd price for chairs. Instead, you should be looking for used dental chairs that combine affordability with portability. This option allows you to outfit your office with the quality equipment your practice needs to succeed without breaking the bank.

  • Dental chair upholstery Since you spend most of your week helping patients in your office, you may be slow to realize when your dental chairs are wearing down. Instead of buying a new fleet of chairs, you can simply upholster your current chairs for a fraction of the price. The best online equipment retailers offer upholstery kits for most dental chairs on their website.

  • Complete office packages The average new dental practice requires $500,000 cash for structural upfit, equipment, and supplies. However, this price assumes that you're buying all of your equipment individually. Instead, you should consider investing in a complete office package. These packages have everything you need to be a successful dentist, including chairs, dental x ray equipment, dental autoclaves, and much more.
Nearly three-quarters (74%) of adults feel an unattractive smile can hurt their career success, and you need the right type of equipment to give your patients the smile they deserve. Invest in these three unique office furnishing ideas to spend more time with your patients and less money on equipment.
