This is Part Two of our two part blog regarding a Dental Group who was experiencing expensive filter changes with the Air Techniques Acadia. Please see Part 1 of this blog, if you did not read that one first.
In our first blog, we discussed how this Dental Group did not maintain their Air Techniques Acadia to manufacturer specifications due to the cost.
Issues for the Dental Group
This resulted in two serious issues for this Dental Group;
1) The City found both their offices with the Air Techniques Acadia to be non-compliant
2) Due to the neglect of their amalgam separators, one of the two offices lost complete suction When the first Acadia went down due to neglect, their Office Manager correctly assumed their similar sized practice with an Acadia would suffer the same fate. This is when Patterson Dental recommended the LibertyBOSS to replace both of their Acadia.
The following is the Issues and Solutions for this practice:
Lack of Information on Required Maintenance
The office was unaware that the Solids Collector (blue basket) attached to the inlet needed to be handled and disposed of as toxic waste (another cost to the system). They were never informed about the required maintenance of the Acadia.
The LibertyBOSS a minimum of 1 ½” throughout the system, this means there isn’t a need for a solids collector or any regular maintenance. It is virtually impossible for our system to clog or cause suction loss The LibertyBOSS will not have to be changed for up to 3 years in this practice and comes with prepaid recycling when the depleted LibertyBOSS is changed out.
Cost of “FREE”
Expensive filter changes, caused the office to choose to neglect the system. You can see in Image 1 the build-up in the Acadia upper chamber.
The LibertyBOSS is guaranteed to service this 6 chair Dental Practice for up to 24 months without service or maintenance.
Value Add Program
This is a new Dental Practice, who is trying to build their clientele.
With the purchase, installation and appropriate maintenance of the LibertyBOSS, this Dental Practice is now a part of the M.A.R.S. Family of Environmentally Friendly Dental Practices. They are automatically enrolled in the M.A.R.S, “Find a Dentist” App, a FREE ADVERTISING Program. This App helps environmentally conscious patients find Dental Practices who have made the conscious effort to install the ONLY amalgam separator who has been Independently Tested to be “Best Available Technology” and “Most Environmentally Friendly.“
