Looking Beyond the Price Tag

The true cost of ownership is about value—not only the value of the equipment, but the value of your time and productivity as well.

That's why it's important to consider the total cost of dental equipment beyond the acquisition phase. Reliability, maintenance, and longevity are all important factors that separate superior quality from low quality.

How long should dental equipment last?

With proper maintenance and service, A-dec dental equipment is designed and tested for a "service life" of 20 years under normal use. The actual service life can be influenced by factors such as environment, extent of use, cleaning and maintenance frequency, and preventative maintenance of normal service "wear & tear" components. Please review A-dec's customer warranty for complete details, including applicable disclaimers and limitations of liability.
