How to Select Dental Equipment

Equipment selection can encompass items that apply to the professional goals of the project as well as those items that are more personal. Some items, such as flashlights, might serve a dual purpose. The selection of professional equipment depends on the scope of the project. It is best to keep tools and equipment as simple as possible—whatever can break, will break. A short course in repairing dental equipment could be most helpful, unless one of the other team members is particularly handy with tools. Electricity and water are particularly important requisite utilities.
