3 Reasons Why You Need a Dental Equipment Expert 
 - December 27th, 2022

When you consider all the ways a trustworthy dental equipment expert can help you organize and run your dental practice, it becomes evident pretty quickly that they are worth their weight in gold. From helping you choose the right equipment for your very first office to being a source of reliable advice as your practice (and your skills) advance, they can help to buoy your success in several ways.

Here’s our top 3 reasons why you need a dental equipment expert.

They Help You Choose the Best Equipment for Your Practice

At Dental Whale, our Equipment Experts have all previously worked as equipment technicians. This hands-on experience has far-reaching benefits for dentists like you.

Because they have worked with so many practices at various stages of growth, they are able to provide tried-and-tested advice on which equipment you should invest in during each stage of your career, given your specific needs at the time. That ensures you don’t overspend on equipment you don’t need or won’t likely get much use of. 

They can also help you avoid purchasing equipment with no manufacturer rep in the event you experience any issues. Our experts do their best to recommend equipment from companies where they have a contact in case you ever need to use that warranty, recover from a glitch, or make a repair. 

And with expertise across a wide variety of equipment makes, models and brands, an equipment expert can and will provide honest feedback about the latest technologies and ensure what you buy is compatible with your software. 

They Help You Stay On Budget & Find the Best Value for Your Money

Dental equipment can be expensive, so it’s crucial to find ways to save money when possible. A relaible dental equipment expert can help you find discounts on equipment by leveraging the buying power of their platform (in the case of Dental Whale, that’s our online Supplies Store) and negotiating prices with vendors and manufacturers.  

Not only does this save you the hassle of speaking with vendors yourself, but it frees up more of your time to do what you love most – focusing on patient care! So you save on your dental equipment and gain back precious time with patients (and the revenue that goes with it). 

When working with an equipment expert, you’re also more likely to stay on budget. Knowing what your annual budget is up-front can ensure you get all of the equipment you need at the price you want with proper planning and thoughtful foresight. 

They Help You Choose Equipment That Can Be Serviced

No matter how talented the dental repair and service technician is, there is no one who has serviced every piece of equipment on the market. 

So when it comes to buying a new piece of equipment, you want to ensure that you purchase something your repair technicians are familiar with and can service, repair, and provide regular maintenance on. An equipment expert can help you do this. 

With new technologies constantly entering the market, it’s often a good idea to let it season a bit instead of being the first to buy. You want to ensure that a replacement part won’t cost an arm and a leg (and that they’re readily available). In other words, you don’t want to purchase equipment if there’s no support to go with it.

At Dental Whale®, our Equipment Experts are an integral part of the overall customer experience and here to assist you with every aspect of your equipment needs – from pricing out the best options to helping organize a full practice build.
