Dear doctor: it’s time for your six-month equipment safety check-up

Equipment Safety Check-up image

It’s a best practice for dental offices to make sure their equipment is monitored regularly to make sure everything is operating correctly and the practice is in compliance with regulatory compliance rules and providing the safest possible experience for staff and patients.

The ADA has compiled this list as a reminder of the types of safety checks that should be undertaken semiannually in a typical dental practice office. As every office is different, this reminder should not be relied upon as an all-inclusive list of the safety checks that should be undertaken.

Download the Safety Checklist for Dental Equipment (PDF) and complete the checklist to see where you stand.

NOTE: Always check state regulations and the manufacturers and suppliers of the equipment for information on inspection and maintenance.
