Importance of Servicing

The importance to service and maintain your equipment annually is to keep it functioning and operating at with 100% accuracy. The true cost of breakdowns can be difficult to measure as it can impact overall production uptime.

Dental practices who embrace the importance of health and safety will avoid unnecessary human risk in resolving problems while production continues. Trying to complete a quick fix due to operational pressures can put staff and patients at risk. A planned service or repair plan will ultimately lead to a safer working practice.

Issues due to equipment faults or breakdowns

Untimely breakdowns caused by underperforming equipment will have a negative impact on any practice. Here are just a few of the issues that occur as a result of faulty equipment:

  1. Reduced uptime due to poor equipment utilisation levels
  2. Expensive part replacements as mechanical and electrical failures occur over time
  3. Greater repair costs can occur if not fixed earlier on
  4. Reduced productivity
  5. Longer downtime due to longer component ordering lead times

Having regular annual servicing significantly reduces the effects of faulty X-ray units as they ensure that parts are still in good working order. They identify and rectify faults during a maintenance schedule and not in the middle of use.
