Before any new equipment is ordered, it is essential to know where where the new equipment will be placed. This can be ascertained by considering the currently available space. Do the existing furniture need to be moved? Or do the equipment need to be placed in another room? This will help reduce congestion and clutter, ensure that the available space in your clinic is well utilized, and help your patients be comfortable.

Shelf Life

Before you get down to purchasing any new equipment, it is essential to know the shelf life of the equipment. This will help determine whether the new equipment needs to be hired or purchased. This allows you to make the best use of the available budget.

Working Capital

Working capital is kept aside to help you run your practice including stocking supplies and paying salaries. Thus, instead of using your working capital to purchase equipment, you should instead use a dental practice loan. Such a loan is tailor-made to help you purchase equipment.

Loans of up to Rs. 30 lakhs can be availed at affordable interest rates. There is no collateral required to avail the loan and if you want, you can even prepay the loan to become debt-free more quickly.
