San Francisco Chronicle: “Glenn Williams started a dental drill repair service in Novato that is doing so well that he is also making money selling the opportunity to set up similar businesses in other parts of the country. ”
A typical dentist may own up to ten handpieces, all of which will require servicing once or twice a year. Almost all their customers send in handpieces on a regular basis.
More from the Chronicle: Williams began his dental career as a manufacturer’s representative in 1984, when he got out of college. Although some entrepreneurs blame government regulations for killing businesses, Williams credits them for helping create his.
In 1992, the Food and Drug Administration required dentists to sterilize not just the drill bit but the entire handpiece after each use. High heat cleaned the equipment but it also baked the lubricants and bearings inside the drill and caused them to freeze up every six months to a year.
