Buying china dental equipment is a serious investment. With so many options available, it’s important to take a close look at reliability, longevity, performance, and other critical factors. Regardless of the brand or manufacturer, there are some key attributes that ensure a dental chair can withstand the daily rigors of dentistry, maximize access to the patient, and provide comfort for both the dental team and the patient.
CHECKLIST FOR “TEST DRIVING” A NEW DENTAL CHAIR
Try these tests the next time you’re in a dealer showroom or at a dental tradeshow:
Touch each piece of equipment to get a feel for how well it’s made.
Check that all parts fit well together.
Move the armrest. Adjust the headrest.
Sit down beside and behind the chair. Is it easy to position yourself close to the chair in each working position?
Recline in the chair to determine the comfort.
Check the motion. Is it bumpy or smooth?
Does the swivel mechanism rotate easily?
How easy is it to pre-program (and override) operating positions?
Check the total height range on the chair. Will it accommodate your entire team?
Ask about the chairs tested lifting capacity.
Test the functionality of the delivery system, chair, and all components.
Just as you would before buying a car, it’s important to thoroughly “test drive” any dental chair you’re seriously considering for your practice.
Does the chair including portable dental chair you're considering have a reputation for quality? Is it backed with a solid warranty? Choose a manufacturer with a history of creating products that are durable, reliable, easy to maintain, and that will support you with service and parts for years after your purchase.
Take your chair for a test drive
You wouldn’t buy a new car without taking it for a spin, so why invest in a dental chair without first finding out if it’s the one for you? Test driving the chairs on your shortlist at a conference or a showroom will assist in fine-tuning your ultimate decision. If you want to extend the test-drive, why not consider short term renting? This option will give you the ability to ‘try before you buy’ and use your chair under actual operating conditions.
