Did you know that dental chairs tend to be the focal point for patient fears about visiting the dentist?
When you’re purchasing one it’s important to make sure you’re selecting a model that provides a positive experience for your patients. Ensuring they’re comfortable should be your number one priority, because it can mean the difference between them returning for treatment and seeking a dentist elsewhere.
What to look for in a dental chair
Modern dental chairs are world’s apart from the chairs of yesteryear. Designed to be ergonomic, high-tech and aesthetically pleasing, a well-chosen dental chair can increase the efficiency and profitability of a dental practice.
For patients, a chair that is up-to-date in technology and appearance, impacts positively on their experience and can aid in building trust, and commitment to treatment plans is essential.
For dentists, functionality is the number one priority, a chair that aids productivity, posture and health of the practitioner is super important. After all, the chair is your workbench and on busy days you can spend long hours using it, so getting the right one is critical.
Make a wish list
Doing your research will help you narrow down exactly what you need in terms of a dental chair. If you’re looking to update your current chair and considering your options, here are some items we believe should be on your wish list:
- Strong and durable
- Ergonomical to use
- Upholstery for optimum patient comfort
- Excellent operability
- High quality light
- Ability to upgrade for future advances

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.
