Discus Dental Slashes Laser Pricing in North America

Yesterday, I told you about the news of the acquisition of Zap lasers by Discus Dental.  That was some interesting news for sure, but I've saved the best for last.  Today's post is about the amount of money you can save now by purchasing a soft tissue laser from  Discus.  One of the things that can happen when one company acquires another is the economy of scale that happens.  Frequently this means that the product line acquired, can be produced and sold for less than before.  What does this mean to you?  Well in this case, it means that Discus is passing the savings along to the customer  That's right, you can now buy Discus laser products for less than ever before.
According to the lateset Technology Census that we ran at dental Products Report, the purchase of a soft tissue laser is ranked high on the list of  most offices in the "intend to purchase" category.  Personally, I find this awesome as a laser has great benefits for a dental practice and even more amazing benefits for your patients.  You really should be asking yourself "which laser is right for me" not "should I buy a laser?".
But, rather than read me rambling on about it, read the press release  and see for yourself!
