Instrument Budget

I am currently searching for a new job. For those lucky enough to receive an instrument budget, how much are you able to spend? Also, is it yearly, half yearly etc? Thank you! I want to be prepared during interviews.

While many offices do, I have personally never been given an “instrument budget.” If I need new instruments I just let the office manager know. I’m very lucky! A budget depends on so many factors; how many set-ups there are, how many patients are seen, so there isn’t a cookie cut answer. What one hygienist’s budget is, may not be right for your office’s budget. If it helps, a good quality instrument needs to be replace about every 9-12 months (again, depends on many factors). Good luck in your job search!
