Equipping Your Dental Office
Setting up a well-equipped dental office can mean the difference between being able to meet your patient’s’ needs and struggling to provide basic services. Learning the right way to do it can help your business run smoothly for many years into the future. The type of equipment you have determines to a certain extent what you can do both as a dentist and as a businessperson. How you place that equipment in the office can make your practice more or less efficient as well.
You need certain equipment to run the business side of things, including computers, a phone system, a copier and a fax machine to name a few. You also need the equipment you use in your role as a dental care professional, which might include things like patient chairs, x-ray machines and a laser. You will need software for your computers to make your dental business run smoothly. Finally, you will need office supplies like paper and dental supplies like floss and syringes. In this part of the book, you can learn what you will need, how to go about getting it, and how to keep it all in stock.
