So, you’re looking into owning your own in-house dental cone beam (CBCT) machine for your practice. Dental and specialty practices across the country are adopting 3D imaging technology as a means to increase their in-house capabilities, and grow their service offering.
Whether you’re just getting started with CBCT for the first time or you’re looking to upgrade your current equipment, you may be searching for ways to purchase that will help you find the right investment for your practice. Today, we’re sharing the top ways dental professionals can find dental cone beam machines, as well as how to compare their options.
One of the more obvious places to start your purchase is through a reputable dental equipment dealer. Many dealers can review a variety of different leading brands and can help guide your purchase based on your unique imaging needs.
Particularly if you’ve used a dealer in the past that you like, this step may be a great starting point. Your dealer can help you by gathering more information about what you plan to use the CBCT equipment for, as well as the space you have available, to recommend the right equipment for your budget.
However, if you don’t have experience working with a dealer, you’ll likely want to vet your choice based on their years of experience, customer reviews, colleague feedback, or referrals.
Other doctors in your network, whether colleagues, conference attendees, graduates of the same university, and others, may be able to assist you in your dental cone beam CBCT investment. They may also be able to point you to manufacturers, models, and brands they’ve used that they like (or don’t like!) you help guide your search.
In some cases, you may even be able to purchase a second-hand unit from a referral who’s looking to upgrade.
Your investment in CBCT can be a very significant purchase for your practice. While you may not complete such a large transaction online, the internet is still a great place (with lots of resources) where you can educate yourself on available brands, desirable features, and current market prices. You can also compare equipment and see reviews to help guide your search. Many doctors start their search online where they can readreviews from other dental professionals instead of relying only on the dealer’s word.
Choosing Certified Pre-Owned Can Save up to 50% off New List Prices!
You also have the option to seek a certified pre-owned unit instead of buying a new system when you are looking for a dental cone beam machine, and considering the price of these systems, some practices may choose this avenue.
Working with a reliable seller is a must. For over 10 years, Renew Digital has been a dealer that has exclusively offered certified pre-owned imaging machines. They offer their customers the leading brands at anywhere from 30% to 50% off the price of new systems. In addition, they often accept their customers’ used imaging equipment as a trade-in towards the purchase price.
Their wide brand portfolio also allows them to offer their customers the best guidance on which equipment would be best for their practices. They also offer a wide range of panoramic and cephalometric X-ray machines and intraoral scanners in addition to dental cone beam machines.
