Tracking Medical Supplies In The Dental Office

Priscilla Hansen

When you manage a dental office, you have to stay on top of the medical supplies. If you don't have the supplies that are needed, then the dentist and staff won't be able to properly care for the patients. This is why it's so important for you to have a proper system in place that ensures the office never runs out of the necessary equipment and supplies. You can learn some things in this article that can help your office run smoothly by making sure everyone has what they need when they need it. 

Use a good inventory system

The best way for you to improve on keeping medical supplies well-stocked is to use a good inventory system. This will allow you to streamline the management of the inventory. It will list each of the medical supplies used by the dental office. Current inventory, minimum and maximum quantities, and monetary values of the inventory can all be tracked. This can be done using a spreadsheet. This will make it easy for you to know which medical supplies you need and how many of them you have to order from the distributor.

Determine what medical supplies are obsolete

As new medical supplies are developed that offer more convenience, improved safety, and other benefits, they can replace other supplies that serve the same purpose. There's no need for you to continue buying supplies that are now becoming obsolete due to those new products now being used more often in the dental office. When you notice some supplies remaining stocked, you may want to remove them completely and make the switch over to those newer products altogether. This will prevent space from being taken up, and it simplifies things by getting the entire office using the same supplies for procedures. 

Track new supplies

When you get new medical supplies in, you want to keep a close eye on their usage. You may need to increase the size of orders for those products if they are being used frequently. If you aren't keeping track, then there can be products that are more likely to run out since there is no previous track record to follow.


When you are keeping the medical supplies properly stocked, you will see the dental office will run more smoothly. Another tip is to move the medical supplies that are already in the office on top of the new supplies as they are delivered. This way, you don't have older supplies expiring, which would be a waste of money.
