Hayes Handpiece Co. offers instrument maintenance training
dentalproductsreport.com , August 7,
CARLSBAD, CA Hayes Handpiece Company announces that it now offers instrument
maintenance training in cities across the country. Hayes has 85 locations and most of these locations are offering
this free instrument processing service to dentists and oral surgeons in a 30 minute lunch and learn format. One
free CE credit is also available to maintenance demo attendees through a partnership with Dentrek.
The Hayes instrument processing demo is designed to take the guesswork out of maintaining hygiene and surgical
instruments-everything from scalers and explorers to forceps and scissors. Hayes representatives review maintenance
steps recommended by top instrument manufacturers such as proper ultrasonic cleaning, lubrication, and
sterilization procedures, as well as CDC guidelines pertaining to instrument infection control. In addition, Hayes
representatives evaluate which instruments need to be sharpened or replaced.
“We have made instrument maintenance training a priority because as a repair company, we can clearly see how
offices that perform proper maintenance are protecting their investment and getting more life out of their
instruments,” explains Joe Hayes, CEO of Hayes Handpiece Company. “Those who do not have a good maintenance
protocol in place have instruments that wear out, corrode, or have to be replaced prematurely.”
Hayes has partnered with Miltex Instruments to be able to offer our customers premium quality instruments when
replacement is necessary.
To schedule instrument maintenance training, please contact your local Hayes handpiece office.
