Without your dental equipment, it would be impossible for you to carry out your day to day dental tasks. It is crucial that you maintain and repair your dental equipment to keep it functioning to the best of its ability, and to ensure your dental supplies and equipment replacement expenditure doesn’t increase year on year.

The thought of spending a lot of money on repairing and maintaining dental equipment can feel like a bit of a drag, especially when you have made a large investment in buying the equipment in the first place. We all know at certain times of the year, it can be hard to find the money to finance these repairs, so we would recommend that you keep money aside to do this.

Abide by the Regulations

It is vitally important that you regularly review the age of your pieces of equipment, as well as ensuring that when a service is due that it is carried out. Make sure that when you buy a piece of equipment for the first time that it has the “CE” mark. This ensures that the product conforms to the latest safety guidelines. When it was introduced in 1998, these quality standards reduced the amount of unsafe equipment that was distributed to practices across the USA and beyond.

Abide by the Manufacturer Recommendations

Each piece of equipment you buy will likely come with recommendations which govern how the equipment should be cared for. This ensures each piece of equipment is safe to use and functions as expected. It is your responsibility as a practicing dentist to ensure that you don’t put any of your patients at risk and have their safety compromised. Also, failure to properly follow the manufacturer recommendations could lead to the invalidation of your warranty for that piece of equipment, which means that if it no longer works as expected, it will not be repaired, or a replacement will not be issued.
