What Is a Dental Equipment Maintenance?

Any industry where fine-tuned machinery is used to give precise measurements calls for careful care to be taken of that equipment. After all, the devices we use to do our jobs typically cost a lot of money, and it’s important to look after them so they last for as long as possible.

But what is a dental equipment maintenance plan when it’s done right? Not to worry: we’ve got a few best-practice tips to help you get more out of your equipment.

At The Start Of The Day

  • Turn on vacuums, air compressors, and master water switches
  • Turn on any and all nitrous-oxide and oxygen tanks
  • Turn on film-based processors, making sure to top up fixers and developers

At Day’s End

  • Run suction cleaners through operatory HVE and saliva ejector tubings
  • Flush self-contained water bottle system tubings, air and water syringes, ultrasonic scalers, and air polishers with air
  • Drain and wipe out ultrasonic cleaner
