Imagine for a moment that you drive a car that’s at least ten years old. It might be dented, slow, unreliable, and in need of a new paint job. It would probably be able to get you from point A to point B, but for how long—and how efficiently? What would the repair costs be if it broke down?
When you think about it, an old dental chair is not so different. You may be getting by with it at the moment, but what are the hidden costs you aren’t considering? An uncomfortable, unreliable, or unattractive dental chair can hinder your workflow, lower patients’ opinions of your practice, and cause you to lose income every time it breaks down.
A dental practice literally revolves around the dental chair—every patient sits in one, whether it’s for a routine check-up or an extensive implant procedure. As a vital piece of equipment, your dental chair should enable you to perform your work safely, efficiently, and comfortably. When designed to suit the space and workflow of your practice, it can make a significant impact on the efficiency and level of service that your patients receive.
Take the A-dec 500 dental chair, for example. Not only does it provide your patients with more comfort than any dental chair available today, it allows you to get close enough to the patient to maintain a healthy posture, reducing pain and discomfort. Built to deliver years of consistent performance, the A-dec 500 dental chair is tested for a minimum 20-year lifespan and comes with a five-year warranty.
And it’s designed to work in perfect harmony with delivery systems as well as your dental furniture, clinical devices, and other accessories to streamline the treatment experience. For example, using an
A-dec 545 12 o’clock assistant’s work surface alongside a tub and tray system promotes efficient workflow. The flow of movement around the oral cavity, including at the transfer of materials and hand instruments, is key to a smooth operation. Using this method, everything needed for an appointment is in one place, making the setup, procedure and decontamination processes significantly quicker.
Finally, consider what your dental equipment says about your practice. The clean, streamlined look of A-dec 500 dental equipment instills confidence that your dental techniques are equally up to date. It also goes a long way toward reducing patient anxiety: by keeping all the instruments and delivery system out of the patients’ sight, they are less likely to be nervous about a procedure. And when your patients are more relaxed, so are you.
