How to buy a dental chair: Start with 3 simple questions.

Want to be sure you select the right chair for your dental office?

The needs of every dental office and its patients vary. Sure, some general guidelines may stretch across the entire profession of dentistry, but when it comes down to it, what does your chair need to be capable of to suit you and your patients?

The process of buying a dental chair is simple when it’s broken down into three categories: function, fabric and color.

  1. Function. What do you need your chair to do?
    How intricate do you want the controls to be? The Midmark UltraComfort Dental Chair (shown at top) offers four programmable presets to create effortless placement of both the patient and the chair. Do you need it to recline a little or a lot? How much do you need it to raise or lower? How accessible does it need to be? The Fusion Package from Forest Dental, shown above, features a patient chair with flip-down armrests that make it easy for your patients to get in and out. Backrest — narrow or wide? Select a chair that can do all that you need it to.
DCI Edge Series 5 Chair, shown, offers four layers of memory foam to ensure patients are always comfortable.

2. Fabric. What makes your patients the most comfortable?
From Ultraleather to pearlized or nauga soft upholstery, the material of your chair matters. A chair with memory foam like the DCI Edge Series 5 Chair (shown above) offers four layers of memory foam to ensure patients are at ease. Also, select a fabric that remains clean with everyday use.

The 1800 Spirit Dental Chair from Pelton & Crane, shown, is available in 37 color options.

3. Color. How can a chair complement your color scheme? Match your dental chair to the rest of your equipment, finishes and overall style. The 1800 Spirit Dental Chair from Pelton & Crane (shown above) is available in 37 color options. The color of your chair should not only match the office but should also balance it.
