Dental Handpiece & Operatory Maintenance, and Instrument Processing and Sterilization

Dental Sterilization and Equipment Maintenance

Dental handpieces, instruments, and equipment are a costly investment and every dental office needs to have a team that is knowledgeable in its proper care and maintenance.

Poorly maintained dental handpieces, instruments, and equipment can compromise the quality of performance, lead to potential health and safety risks and can cause costly and time-consuming repair.

Dental equipment maintenance and sterilization of handpieces and instruments must be conducted on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis to ensure high performance and safety for both patients and employees.

Our dental sterilization and equipment maintenance training will provide you and your team with the proper knowledge in taking care of your dental handpieces, instruments, and operatory equipment.
