MONTREAL--Handpiece Experts and ProDrive Systems has announced the launch of its nationwide certified service program, telling dentists that their handpiece service provider meets national guidelines.

These quality practices improve overall handpiece performance and durability, and reduce annual service costs.

Dentists face frustration when their handpieces perform poorly and fail frequently. Handpiece Experts resolves this problem by providing reliable local service that includes high-quality parts, repairs and maintenance. Dentists' needs can be met with a variety of Handpiece Experts service programs: monthly services, mobile on-site emergency repair, and mail-in services--all quality certified.

Handpiece Experts dertified dealers provide additional reliability and cost savings for the dentist by offering handpiece maintenance training programs. These programs train dental office staff to improve how handpieces are cared for between service calls.

Handpiece Experts is part of the ProDrive group of companies that also includes High Speed Service, North America's largest mobile on-site handpiece repair service. ProDrive has obtained more than $12 million of financing to date, and has begun an additional and larger finance round to close by second quarter 2008.

Funds will be applied to expanding the Handpiece Experts network and launching the patented ProDrive System--a triangular drive bur and chuck handpiece upgrade that improves handpiece cutting speed and accuracy. The Handpiece Experts certified dealer network is part of a combined product, dealer and service strategy to resolve dental handpiece performance and durability challenges.

"Dentists own an average of seven handpieces, and virtually all these handpieces fail in some way every year, making dentists' most important instrument also their main source of frustration. Handpiece Experts quality certification is a tangible and immediate solution to this dilemma," said Jean Castonguay, president and CEO of Handpiece Experts.

"Our ProDrive product system has leveraged patented innovation to resolve chronic handpiece performance problems. Now, with the launch of Handpiece Experts, we provide dentists confidence and peace of mind that local Handpiece Experts Certified Dealers will improve the reliability and performance of their handpieces. This is ensured by our national guidelines for products and services. Currently, we have over 90 High Speed Service dealers across North America – a solid foundation for our objective of 400 Handpiece Experts Certified Dealers nationwide within 18 months."
