Welcome to Our Practice



Improve our clients' ability to deliver patient care by maintaining their powered instruments with exceptional service and integrity.

ER Handpiece Repair, located in Joliet, Illinois, is owned and operated by Eric and Laura Reibenstein.  Originally from Canton, Ohio, Eric and Laura relocated  to Plainfield in 2001. Eric then chose to pursue his dream of being his own boss and owning his own business. Thus, ER Handpiece Repair was founded and has grown steadily ever since.

Eric holds an AS in mechanical engineering from the University of Akron, Ohio. Prior to opening ER Handpiece Repair, Eric held a variety of positions in job shop manufacturing.  The in-depth knowledge of metals and mechanics gained in these roles has proved to be very valuable in the handpiece repair business.  Eric’s engineering background, coupled with the machining equipment he owns, allows him to service the traditional handpiece repair requests, and also fix, adjust, and salvage unusual problem handpieces.

In 2003, Laura joined Eric in the business following a lengthy career in information technology outsourcing. Laura holds a BA in Finance from UW-Whitewater.

ER Handpiece Repair is dedicated to meeting all your handpiece repair needs, through quality, timely servicing.  We offer complete service on all makes and models of handpieces, including powered surgical instruments.   Your satisfaction with our service is our primary goal, and we look forward to working with you!

Thank you for the opportunity to earn your business.

It was great to see so many of you at the 2018 Chicago Midwinter Meeting!
