Many practitioners refer their instrument maintenance to professional instrument repair companies, however; this can become quite expensive, and the instrument could be absent from their practice for a delayed time leaving the practitioner with probable deteriorated loaner instruments or possibly no instrument at all. This paper explains how simple repairs and calibrations can be done by the practitioner in his office with a limited number of tools and accessories, thereby; saving the practitioner money and time. This paper will also explain how preventive maintenance can save major repairs to the instruments.
