The Training Sessions After the Pacific Dental Conference- Part 2

The Training Sessions After the Pacific Dental Conference- Part 2

This Blog Series will be highlighting the training sessions our Technical Specialist, Jason Buyukozer, taught while he traveled the West Coast of Canada certifying the Patterson Dental Team as M.A.R.S Certified Amalgam Separator Specialists. We will discuss each branch as Jason had a great experience with each of them.

2018 has been a fantastic year for M.A.R.S Bio-Med, many of the thanks for our great year goes to our largest Trusted Distributor, Patterson Dental Canada. Their support and full belief in the quality and value of our products, not only helps M.A.R.S grow but allows Patterson to offer a more exceptional service to their clients. M.A.R.S is proud to be able to state that Patterson Sales Representatives and Service Technicians receive annual specialized training amalgam separator and evacuation line cleaners.

This specialized training allows Patterson Dental to ensure the compliance and safety of their clients, while potentially saving Dentists hundreds of dollars a year on their amalgam separator and evacuation line cleaner costs.

Training Sessions with Patterson Dental – Vancouver

Patterson’s Vancouver Branch is undoubtedly one of their busiest, especially around the Pacific Dental Conference. The PDC is where Patterson highlights products and services specific to them, like the M.A.R.S brand of value-add products. They proudly displayed the LibertyBOSS in their booth at the PDC 2018, as it is known as the Best Available Technology in amalgam separation and a product only available through Patterson of all the National Service Companies.


Knowing that B.C. Cities have recently updated their knowledge of amalgam separator compliance and inspection, the Patterson Vancouver Branch wanted to make sure that their staff has the most up-to-date training on amalgam separator maintenance. On March 12th, 2018 Patterson Technicians at the Vancouver Branch became M.A.R.S Certified Amalgam Separator Specialist, receiving similar training sessions on amalgam separator compliance as the City Inspectors.

M.A.R.S Certified Amalgam Separator Specialist Training Sessions

Due to the high demand for many of their experience Technicians after the PDC, M.A.R.S will be rescheduling training sessions with the Vancouver Branch. Two new hires were able to attend the training on March 12th, Sam Bian and Luis Hung.

Jamie Heuberger, Vancouver Branch’s new Service Manager, should be proud of both Sam and Luis. Both of these men are incredibly intelligent, dedicated and excited to help dentists save money and be compliant with the LibertyBOSS amalgam separator.

Sam Bain

Within an hour of Sam becoming a M.A.R.S Certified Amalgam Separator Specialist, he was able to show one of his clients the value of upgrading to a LibertyBOSS. Below is a photo of Sam’s first amalgam separator upgrade to a LibertyBOSS. Driven by the results of his upgrade, Sam told M.A.R.S, “The BOSS Journey begins.”

Scott Gray

Though one of the Vancouver Branch’s newer Service Technicians, Scott is a great asset to the Branch. He has an amazing eagerness to grow his knowledge to offer the best service possible to his clients. During the M.A.R.S Training in 2017, Scott became a M.A.R.S Certified Amalgam Separator Specialist, in 2018 he brought our Technical Specialist to perform a Compliance Consult with a client who was experiencing suction issues.

Though Jason started the Compliance Consult, Scott took over the consultation when it came time to explain the findings to the Doctor. Now Scott is excited to take his new knowledge and share it with the Dental Industry, offering FREE Compliance Consults to help Dental Practices save money and guarantee compliance.
