Let’s Meet the Service Technicians

On March 13th, 2018 our Technical Specialist spent the entire day certifying the Edmonton Service Technicians as M.A.R.S Certified Amalgam Separator Specialists. Each of the Patterson Service Technicians was enthusiastic and energized to begin the training session.Ed training 2018 (1)

Newest Additions – Callen and Aidyn

New does not mean inexperienced, especially for Service Technicians Callen Martin and Aidyn Biggs. These two bright and driven Technicians were recruited from the Bio-Medical Engineering Technology program at Northern Alberta Institute of Technology. Though new to the Dental Industry, these two are a solid hire for the Patterson Edmonton Branch. Aidyn and Callen were upfront during the Amalgam Separator Certification Course, asking excellent questions and making keen observations throughout the session. Any Dental Practice is lucky to get these two new hires as Service Technicians, and will undoubtedly learn how big of an asset they will be for their office.

Lead Installer – Steve

M.A.R.S is ecstatic to leaner that the new Lead Installer for the Edmonton Branch will be Steve Mytrunec. A plumber by trade, Steve has a high standard in the quality of work, not leaving the job until it is perfect. Every installation Steve does, no matter how simple or small is clean, organized and of an incredibly high caliber. M.A.R.S is excited to see the many upgrades to the M.A.R.S LibertyBOSS he will be providing for the Edmonton Dental Community.

Experienced, Loyal and Amazing

The Edmonton Branch is not all new, they have held on tightly to some of the most amazing and skilled Service Technicians in Alberta.


Our Technical Specialist, Jason Buyukozer, had met Michael Vaynshteyn at the 2017 annual training with the Edmonton Branch. This man is sincere, straightforward, and has a real technical understanding, everything you would want in a Service Technician.

This year during the M.A.R.S Certification Course, Michael was eager to learn more about offering his customers Compliance Consults. During the training, it was very evident that every question he asked, he had one of his clients in mind. There is no doubt that Michael will be passing on his new knowledge to his clients, saving them money and guaranteeing their compliance. If Michael is servicing your area in Edmonton, be sure to ask him for a Compliance Consult.


After being in the Dental Industry for many years and working in many different areas, Dave Langton has become a legend in Edmonton. It was great to have him sit in on the M.A.R.S Certification Course. Though through experience, Dave most likely knew much of what was taught, it was still amazing to see someone as knowledgeable as Dave, strive to better his understanding. The experiences he shared during the training assisted in adding value to the M.A.R.S course.

Tom and Kane

Two experts in the M.A.R.S LibertyBOSS is Tom Corbett and Kane Katerenchuk. These men are M.A.R.S Certified Amalgam Separator Specialists, having gone through the training over the past several years. Due to a couple of emergency service calls both of these excellent Technicians were not able to attend this year’s training.

During Tom’s emergency service call, he was dealing with a severe suction problem at a Dental Practice. A significant cause of the suction loss was due to a filter based amalgam separator, poorly maintained by another service company. The next day that office was upgraded to a M.A.R.S LibertyBOSS, which helped restore the suction to full capacity.

Restored to Greatness

In 2002-2003, the Edmonton Branch won the Branch of the Year award. M.A.R.S and other Patterson Vendors can undoubtedly see the significant change brought by strong leadership and a powerful team. There will be no surprise to see the Branch of the Year go to the Edmonton Branch in 2018-2019. Everyone here at M.A.R.S would like to share our excitement for Patterson Edmonton; we can only see fantastic growth for their entire team.
