Each year, we put out a publication that features our most popular equipment and technology solutions – from cone beam and digital imaging to operatory packages and small equipment. Equally important: We publish it before the new year to help practices save.
The savings are significant and tangible. There are a few ways this works. First, we offer special year-end financing rates on equipment and technology purchases that must be approved by December 31. (Other conditions also apply. Contact a Patterson representative for more information.)
Second, our Patterson customers can redeem their Patterson Advantage® Dollars to create additional savings. 2011 Advantage Dollars also expire on December 31, 2012 – but it’s simple to reinvest them in practices.
Last, but certainly not least, are the Section 179 and 50 percent bonus depreciation tax incentives that can mean major savings through tax write-offs. Assuming a few criteria are met, a 2012 equipment purchase of $200,000 can generate tax savings of more than $60,000*. That’s more than 30 percent of an equipment purchase recouped immediately.
Of course, another great thing about the Equipment & Technology Year-End Savings Guide is it’s a wonderful place to see industry-leading technology from Patterson. We’re excited to be able to usher our customers into the future of dentistry – and it’s never more evident than when looking at this annual technology guide.
*Benefits assume various criteria are met. All qualifying Section 179 property is assumed less than $560,000; straight line depreciation, 5-year recovery period is assumed; 35 percent tax bracket is assumed.
