post 69 picAs it turns out, our friends in Congress may be a dentist’s greatest ally.  

Technology options for dental professionals have continued to evolve at an exciting pace.

Such technologies can help providers to build patient trust and empowerment through information and education.

Developments in digital diagnostic tools can facilitate enhanced quality of care. Many tech solutions yield improved data privacy and security, lessening potential liability. Others advance operational efficiencies, directly contributing to the bottom line.

Digital adoption may even serve as a catalyst to boost practice valuation for a possible future sale or transition.  

Regardless of the motivation or outcome, the return on investment for technology adoption can be rapid and significant, and is most definitely an impetus for change.  

Another such incentive was thought to be near extinction, but rest assured that the Section 179 tax deduction is alive and well.  

The federal tax program, rumored to be cut for 2013, was resurrected as part of the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, also known as the ‘Fiscal Crisis Bill’. 

The program encourages small businesses to invest in their own growth, potentially allows a deduction of as much as $500,000 on most new and used capital equipment purchases, as well as certain types of software.  Additionally, there is a 50% bonus depreciation that can be taken on new equipment.

Time is running out to take advantage of these significant tax savings as all purchases must be put into service by Dec. 31, 2013 in order to qualify.  It should also be noted that additional tax rules may apply.  To be sure that Section 179 is applicable to your business it is always recommended that you consult with your tax expert.

Dentists Management Corporation (DMC) offers a wide range of high-quality digital X-ray equipment, software and computer hardware for dental professionals. For more information about products and services provided by DMC, please contact Jody Blakely today.

Choosing to invest in your dental technologies is a right click for your present financial gain, your practice profitability as well as your potential future practice value.
