If you don’t have your dental equipment in excellent working condition, care for your patients will suffer, and put them at risk. While patient safety should be your number one concern, you will also notice that your expenditure for replacement equipment will decrease as well. This is why you should look after your equipment and other dental supplies.
After buying expensive equipment, the thought of shelling out more money on maintaining the equipment feels difficult to do (I know the feeling!), but it is certainly worth it in the long run. If you deliberately set money aside for maintaining your equipment, you will certainly notice the difference and improve patient care in the process.
Closely Follow the Regulations
When you first purchase your piece of equipment, we would recommend that you give the instruction manual a read, as this manual will likely detail what regulations you must follow in order to keep your dental equipment working to the best of its potential. It is crucial that when you first use the equipment that you check that it comes fitted with the all-important “CE” mark. This ensures that the product passes all the relevant safety checks and is safe to be used on all patients that you treat. If you treat patients with equipment that doesn’t have this mark, you could be held liable if things were to go wrong with a particular treatment.
Make sure you take the maintenance tips for your equipment on board, because if you don’t properly maintain the equipment as advised by the manufacturer, it may invalidate your warranty, meaning that if the equipment breaks, it will not be repaired or replaced, which can prove to be an expensive mistake.
