The COVID-19 pandemic has created a wave of economic disruption and uncertainty for UK businesses, and dental practices are no exception. It has brought about a fundamental change in the way dental services can be delivered, including minimising the use of aerosol generating procedures and an increased emphasis on decontamination and infection control to keep patients and staff safe at all times.
With many practice budgets already stretched, now may not seem the right time to be looking at buying new equipment and using up much-needed capital.
