As one of the world’s
foremost manufacturers of dental handpieces and small equipment, NSK understand
the dedication and commitment required to be a successful dental professional.
NSK products are developed and designed with advice from the profession and the
extensive product range includes some of dentistry most advance air turbines
NSK was founded in Japan by Keiichi Nakanishi in 1930 and remains a family run business to this day. Over the past 85 years the company’s focus remained fixed on creating elegantly designed, high performance and durable precision instruments that are constantly improved and enhanced by new technology. An important aspect of this process is listening to practitioner feedback so NSK can ensure its products meet the needs of the professionals who use them.
NSK opened its UK and Ireland base eight years ago, and in that time has built a solid reputation for quality products, which are recognised as some of the best and most innovative across the industry. The key to their success has been the combination of quality products and excellent customer service.
To further aid their commitment to customer service NSK are delighted to announce the appointment of Jonathan Singh as their new Product Specialist/Technical Services and Support Engineer for NI & ROI. Jonathan, who is based in Belfast, has a wealth of experience in the dental and medical industry. He specialises in the maintenance and servicing of autoclaves and will be able to service and validate DX Domina and NSK iClave autoclaves and he can have a look at your handpieces, too. Jonathan has a comprehensive knowledge of the methods, techniques and processes used in the validation and verification of all decontamination equipment. Jonathan has an in-depth knowledge of the NSK product range and is looking forward to advising and supporting practices about the most suitable handpieces and autoclaves to meet their individual needs.
Alexander Breitenbach, NSK UK & Ireland Managing Director comments, “We are delighted to welcome Jonathan to the NSK team. We believe that our many customers in NI & ROI will benefit from Jonathan’s detailed knowledge of dental handpieces and decontamination equipment and we are confident he will support the further expansion of the NSK brand.”
Try before you buy
Within the NSK range are some of the most advanced, turbines, contra-angles and autoclaves including the recently launched NSK Ti-Max Z900L, the world’s most powerful turbine*, the NSK Ti-Max Z95L, high-speed (1:5 increasing) contra-angle and the iClave autoclave. A selection of NSK’s most popular products are available via their no obligation 10-day ‘try before you buy’ scheme, which is an ideal way for dentists and hygienists to test out new equipment in their practices before making the decision to invest. Jonathan comments, “It is fantastic that NSK are so confident about their products that they give dentists and hygienists the opportunity to try out the latest turbine, contra-angle or Piezo ultrasonic device to ensure it is the right product for their specific needs before purchase. I am really looking forward to offering this scheme to new and existing NSK clients as I believe the products will speak for themselves!”
The best in infection control
NSK understand that today’s busy dental practices face difficult challenges in maintaining or increasing productivity while ensuring that patient safety remains a top priority. NSK have recently launched a range of autoclaves including the NSK iClave to help meet these needs and Jonathan comments, “Fast instrument cleaning is vital in a busy practice, so quick cycles, large chamber volume and low power consumption are key. The iClave previously known as the Domina from Dental X has sold more than 60,000 units worldwide, demonstrating a proven track record”.
Liz Madden, Dental Nurse at Abbeyglebe Dental Practice in Donegal is one happy iClave customer. She said, “Our previous autoclaves kept breaking down and were difficult and expensive to repair. Morris Dental recommended the NSK iClave to us and we now have four in the practice - and they’ve been great. We use the Fast cycle a lot, as we are a big practice, and the large chamber allows us to autoclave up to four trays at a time. We would highly recommend the NSK iClave, it’s excellent and very easy to use.”
For NSK the future is not only about continuing to develop and improve its equipment offering, but also grow the commitment to giving the best service and support to the industry. Jonathan comments, “I am delighted to be joining such a team of highly specialised NSK Territory Managers, and I am committed to offering all our customers exceptional advice and support. I look forward to meeting you all in the very near future.”
