Your dental chair is the heart of your operatory. It’s the first thing patients see when they walk in, which leaves a lasting impression, and it’s also used as the main workbench for you and your assistant. Considering that the dental chair is one of the utmost essential pieces of equipment for your practice,there are important factors to consider when shopping for a new dental chair. Here are 3 basic, but essential tips when buying a dental chair.
- Implement Every Practical Technology. The article points out that dental technology is constantly in a state of rapid flux, so it makes sense to build in all technologies currently available to ensure longevity of your equipment. Dental chairs are a large investment, so you don’t want to buy a chair today and have it become obsolete tomorrow.
- Appearance Has an Impact. As stated above, the chair is the first thing your patients see when they walk in and it could really have a lasting impression. We know people develop their initial reactions with their eyes, so if they see a high-tech new chair, their opinions and acceptance to treatment may be more positive.
- Spending eight hours bent over a chair can impact your daily productivity as well as career longevity. DPM recommends that the chair adapt to you ergonomically, so you don’t have to adapt to your chair. And TREEDENTAL couldn’t agree more, which is why we have long been committed to providing ergonomically-friendly thin back chairs.
