Things to Consider When Buying a Dental Tool Set November 20th, 2018 A dentist is only as good as his tools, and taking the time to purchase a quality dental tool set is a key consideration for any dentist looking to set up their new practice. When making the decision, there are a few things you should consider to ensure you’re making the right purchase. Trusted Brands Be sure to purchase from established and trusted manufacturers. This probably doesn’t need to be said, but it’s an important thing to keep in mind when you’re selecting your hand tools. While it may be tempting to buy online and save money on cheaper products, they are generally poorly made and won’t meet industry regulations. Ergonomics Consider the size and weight of your tools when buying and materials the tools are made of. Different materials have different weights, and easy manipulation of the equipment is vital to performing difficult procedures over extended periods. Reputable Supplier Buy your equipment from a supplier who offers continued service after the purchase. Where possible, buy your equipment from the same trusted manufacturer to ensure quality and prompt servicing when needed. By having your equipment regularly serviced, you will extend their life and value. Warranty & Servicing Be sure to pay attention to the warranties offered on any equipment and what isn’t covered in the policy. Dental tool sets have many moving and motorised parts, and wear and tear is par for their use. Be aware and prepared to replace some parts not covered. Invest in a Quality Steriliser Not all sterilisers are equal, and many can extend the life of your equipment better than others. Speak to your supplier about the benefits of different models.
