Does Your Dental Office Have an Uninterruptible Power Supply?
Here in California, dentistry is competitive. There may be dozens of other dentists in your market. Plus, even in the most populous state, you know millions of people put off their time in the dentist’s chair. In fact, 42% of Americans don’t see a dentist as often as they would like.
And that doesn’t count the many others who have dental anxiety – more than 60% of those surveyed.
With all that in mind, California dentists have a tough job ahead to create a welcoming atmosphere. Nothing contributes more to that pleasant feeling than knowing you are safe, of course. And few other business investments contribute more to safety than an uninterruptible power supply (UPS).
A UPS Power Supply is Essential to Withstand Power Outages and Keep Procedures on Track
For the average Californian, nothing could be worse than the thought of the lights going out in the middle of a procedure. In the case of dental procedures that require general anesthesia, it could even be dangerous.
A UPS power supply prevents all of that from happening, keeping your patients happy and safe.
In the event of an interruption in electricity supplied by your utility, equipment attached to an uninterruptible power supply will seamlessly shift to battery backup power. This allows you to continue operating equipment and lights so you can complete a procedure or reach a less disruptive stopping point.
In any healthcare environment, critical medical equipment is the first to be connected to a UPS power supply. Anesthesia equipment is usually backed up first, followed by other devices needed for scheduled procedures, then refrigerated storage used for pharmaceuticals.
While a consumer-grade UPS power supply system may only provide a few minutes of up-time, a business-class UPS power supply system suitable for a dental office can keep all key equipment and lights going for anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. In most cases, this is sufficient time for utility power to be restored.
An Uninterruptible Supply of Power Makes the Winning Difference in Quality Dentistry Care
If a procedure is disrupted by a power outage, rescheduling is the best-case scenario. Negative reviews and lost business are perennial problems – and there is always a chance of legal liability.
