The hectic pace of day-to-day activity in a Dental practice can mean that the processes of managing surgical, operational, and building equipment are easily overlooked by a busy team who are concentrating on delivering patient care. 

However, failing to manage the servicing and upkeep of these assets can lead to costly consequences such as unexpected downtime and expensive urgent service callouts and frustration both for patients and your own team, as well as increasing potential risks to safety or breaches of compliance.

And how do you plan for future expenditure if you don’t exactly know what you have today?

In this article, I wanted to address the challenges of Asset Management and share the top tips to tackle them and save you valuable time and money.

The Challenges of Dental Asset Management

It seems increasingly common that dental practice managers and owners are acutely aware of the costs associated with purchasing equipment, only to find themselves falling behind on their asset management as more and more dental equipment is purchased and their ability to efficiently and effectively track their assets diminishes.

Many practices tend towards an asset management model that is dismally insufficient for the needs of their staff and patients, only reluctantly servicing equipment when it really needs it.

This is obviously far from optimal and can result in problems that can be easily avoided by taking a more business-focused approach.

What practices can do differently

Currently, practices approach their asset management in various ways, meaning there is rarely cohesion and integration with their inventory systems or their billing and accounts departments.

However, without a system to manage their assets, practices can run into difficulties in long-term planning, unreliable equipment, and spending capital on the wrong equipment at the wrong times. One solution to this predicament, as practices across the UK are now discovering, is the digital asset management platform iService.

The latest addition to Agilio’s rapidly growing product portfolio, iService, is the UK’s first dental-specific application that revolutionises how practices manage their fixed assets, from onboarding to fault reporting. servicing, forward planning and financial forecasting.
