You’ve done everything right, and your handpiece has served you well, but there comes a time when a repair is no longer cost-effective. When it’s time to make a purchase, what should you consider?

You’ve done everything right, and your handpiece has served you well, but there comes a time when a repair is no longer cost-effective. When it’s time to make a purchase, what should you consider?

One of the main factors to consider is buying from someone you have a relationship with who understands your practice, and can make a recommendation based on your current needs and your future plans. “We started selling handpieces simply as a replacement when the repair was not cost-effective,” says Joe Hayes, CEO of Hayes Handpiece Company, a nationwide provider of handpiece service, sales and training., “But the reality is that people want to buy from us because we have focused solely on handpieces for so long, that we really know what makes a quality product, and what is prone to problems,” says Hayes.

Like so many areas of the dental industry, handpieces continue to evolve at a rapid pace. “The technology is constantly changing,” explains Hayes. “And it’s not a one-size-fits all sort of purchase.” There are many handpieces that can grow with your practice. You want to make sure you consider the type of procedures you are doing today, and what you plan on doing tomorrow when making a purchase. “This is where Hayes can provide the most value when consulting a client on purchasing handpieces. We are very familiar with all of the options, variables, and limitations when it comes to using handpieces for restorative, cosmetic, endo, implants, surgical and other procedures.”

In addition to new handpieces, there are many reconditioned handpieces on the market. This is a great option when your practice is on a tight budget, or when you need some back-up handpieces, or more handpieces in circulation. Hayes sells reconditioned handpieces for half the price of new that include a six-month warranty.
