When making a big purchase, such as dental equipment, you want to avoid missteps and untimely investments. Your purchasing plan should be based on your current needs and future growth and development goals. Here are a few guidelines that can help you identify these needs, goals and assist you in avoiding any unnecessary purchases.
Three-month rule – Before making a purchase above $20,000 you need to allow yourself three months to research, view demonstrations, and review pricing quotes. You want to be sure you made the best choice possible!
Trendy Developments – Most impulse buys tend to be targeted towards the latest gadget in the market. These products are mostly over priced and have mixed reviews when it comes to their long-term success rate. Sometimes an older classic model may be a safer and better choice for your practice. Do not be intimidated into assuming the newer the better!
Discounts – Great deals can happen at trade shows! Be sure to always keep an eye out for these special deals! At Dens ’N Dente, we have monthly product specials we offer. To see this month’s specials click here (http://densndente.ca/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/Dens-May-Specials.pdf).
