The Importance of Dental Backup Systems
Picture this. It's 9:15 AM and you are sitting down for your first exam of the day. The waiting room is filling up for the morning and you have a full day ahead of you. Your hygienist walks in sheepishly and informs you that the handpieces in operatory #2 are not working. You check the delivery in the room you are in.... a sinking feeling sets over you. You rush down to the mechanical room in the basement and your worst fear has come true. The air compressor is not running. You check breakers and fuses to no avail. A cascade of uncomfortable decisions must be made, and you are now in a frenzy to get your practice back up and running as soon as possible.
Has this situation ever happened to you? Do you lose sleep over this possibility?
Equipment failure leading to an office shutdown is a very real risk, but it is also avoidable.
A dental practice relies heavily on the seamless operation of key equipment items such as air compressors, vacuum pumps, and sterilizers. The unexpected failure of any of these can result in significant disruptions, potentially shutting down an entire dental office. Atlas Resell Management offers a solution through its range of affordable, refurbished, and used dental equipment, ensuring that practices can safeguard themselves against such disruptions without doubling their equipment expenses.
The Impact of Equipment Failure
When dental equipment fails in a practice, it sets off a domino effect of disruptions. Daily operations grind to a halt as appointments get canceled, leaving clients frustrated. Financially, it's a double whammy – not only do you lose income immediately, but you also incur unexpected expenses for urgent repairs or replacements. On top of that, the practice's professional reputation can take a hit, resulting in negative reviews and a loss of patient trust.
The Importance of Redundancy
Having backup equipment and sticking to regular maintenance routines is crucial to maintaining uninterrupted daily operations. From a financial standpoint, the upfront cost of acquiring extra equipment is far outweighed by the savings from avoiding potential losses during unexpected downtime. Consider that an average practice takes in about $3,500 daily, but the average price of air compressors, vacuum pumps, and sterilizers from Atlas are $2,500-3,000. Allocating a budget for redundancy isn't an expense; it's an investment in ensuring the long-term sustainability of a practice. With refurbished equipment becoming more available, it’s more affordable than ever to have quality backups for all critical equipment.

Testimonial From Atlas Customer:
“My Statim 2000 went down, and I found myself in dire straits! Since I quickly needed a solid replacement at the best price, I looked to Atlas for options. My sales rep was very helpful and patient! She answered all of my questions (and there were many!) with knowledge and courtesy. She also arranged to give me the best price on an already very low-priced Statim 5000… Thank you!”
