Are you gloomy when your equipment seems to fail or break on your busiest days? This program will present basic office equipment maintenance so that those Manic Mondays disappear! This course will give great advice on maintenance, upkeep and identification of possible equipment failure – and how to avoid crisis and panic!

  • Handpiece maintenance, do-it yourself fixes, lubrication & cleaning
  • Preventing air and water from joining forces in your air/water syringe
  • Cavitron low/no water fixes

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding the function of the heartbeat of the practice
  • Understand key failures of each of the pieces of the equipment thatmake up the heartbeat of the practice
  • Simple and inexpensive do it yourself fixes

Eric Payne; TEKagogo:

Mr. Payne is referred to, lovingly, as TEKagogo’s Chief Troublemaker. Once you meet him, this will immediately make sense. With more than two decades of experience in the dental industry, one might say he has a rather spirited background. With his hands on approach, and do it yourself kind of attitude, you will see his positive impacts quickly. Excited by the “disruptive nature” of our company and “its TekCentric focus that will elevate the lives of both the Teks themselves and the Clinicians they touch, and the opportunity for future innovation within the platform that will significantly alter the way the business of clinicians and technicians operate.”
