We’ve heard it before: Don’t buy a new car, it loses value the moment it drives off the lot. This is true for a lot of large business purchases and many starting dental offices have a limited budget to get the equipment they need to treat patients. It’s a vicious cycle of need vs cost, but it doesn’t have to be.In our lives, we have to make a lot of decisions when it comes to purchasing. Those purchase carry more weight when they are for our own business. Should I spend or should I save? What is the cost-benefit? Is there a better way to get what I need? These are all questions that go through the mind of a purchaser and it’s hard to zero in on an answer. There are some great articles online about what to buy new and what to buy used but some used purchase can save you a great deal of money without sacrificing quality.
