Dental Instrument Customer Satisfaction Guarantee

Our unconditional guarantee to our customers is a promise of their complete satisfaction.

This means that within the first thirty (30) days of using their new instrument if the customer is not completely satisfied, we ask them to contact our Customer Service department, obtain a return authorization number, send the item with a copy of the invoice, and we will issue credit or provide a replacement.

Limited Lifetime Warranty

Except as otherwise noted, the manufacturer offers a lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship, and will, at our option, repair or replace any product that fails as a result of any such defect.  The warranty period is exceptionally three (3) months for products with a life inherently shorter than 24 months due to normal wear and tear, for example tips of hand instruments, tips of ultrasonic scalers, plastic trays, plastic autoclavable components, tips of endodontic files, front surface mirrors and grinding stones of sharpening devices. 

Each class of instrument has a life expectancy based on its intended use. Due to various contributing factors which could expedite or prolong the effective life of an instrument it is only reasonable to determine an average life expectancy as documented in the attached table
