The Ultimate List Of DENTAL INSTRUMENTS & EQUIPMENTS For Your Clinic

Hey friends! Welcome back to my blog! If you are here on this page then you might be going to open a new dental clinic. Here, I listed all the dental products, instruments, and equipment that will be needed for a new dental clinic. I have tried my best to add all the products that will be useful for your clinic.

Let me just tell you a few things in general. Before you make a purchase, please make a checklist of products that will be needed for your dental clinic. Includes everything from materials, instruments, equipment, decors, furnishes, stationery, and everything. In one paper, write the list of materials on other equipment, and separate the list. Categorize the list, so that it would be easy for you to buy, bargain and check. I have given a vast list of dental materials, and according to your needs, you can change or cut down the list.

  1. Hello Good day sir thanks for uploading the stuff in so details. It’s of great use.
    I m opening a new dental clinic. So can you plz advice me approx cost for the setup. As I have gone through the equipment list there are 231 items in total. For knowledge and to consider can you plzzz tell me approx cost of total equipments written in site and how to proceed for buying. Online or buying from any showroom.
    Thanks in advance.
    Awaiting your reply.

    • Dear Ravi,

      Thanks for your appreciation of this list of dental products I had given here.

      I would say it will cost you an approximate of Rs.10 lakhs for total clinic set-up with 2 dental chairs and all the standard materials and equipment.

      This includes interior designing with partitions using quality plywoods, mica sheets, 12mm glass for doors, electricals, plumbing, painting, etc for a clinic of around 400-500 square feet. It will also include your hoardings using ACP boards, designing of visiting cards, pamphlets, FB page, website and lot more.

      And about from where to buy the products: I would suggest you buy costly equipment like dental chairs, compressors, RVG, X-Ray, etc from the offline dealer and other products from Online. Please do re-check with the service provided by the local dealer and the manufacturing companies.

  2. Very useful list. Came handy while I planned for my clinic. There are a lot to take in, but you can always pick and choose. A good addition would be to add approx price range for the major equipments , like x-ray ,Apex locator, compressors,autoclave, uv cabinets etc . Thanks for the list, doc. It really helped.

  3. Hello sir good evening I read ur article nd it’s really very helpful for me thank u so much can u tell me around how much it costs to me for one dental chair setup
    Waiting for your reply
    Have a good day sir
    Thank you ๐Ÿ˜Š

    • Dear Dr.Amee,

      Thank you so much!

      The cost for a one chair clinic can be somewhere between 3-4 lakhs. It depends on the instruments and equipment you are planning to use. Make out a plan whether you need equipment like RVG, Endomotor, Intra-oral camera, etc.

      Also, you have to keep in mind which chair you are going to buy, there are chairs ranging from 1.5 to 3 lakhs. So in short, the cost completely depends on your requirements.
