In this survey, 83% of dentists said that many tools do not live up to advertised promises. The remaining 17% said that every piece of equipment has a learning curve, and equipment purchases had met expectations.
“Are you kidding? Damn near every piece of equipment has been over-hyped,” complained one dentist. “The drawbacks are omitted before the sale. If suppliers were real estate brokers, physicians, or even dentists they would have all lost their licenses years ago. It’s more like buying a used car than a piece of professional equipment.”
