A lot of thought went into the design and layout of this practice. The surgery layout and equipment used was all about maximising efficiency. The A-dec 400 chair in granite sewn upholstery without spittoon sits on its own in the centre of the room. The dentists delivery system, overhead light and nurses instruments are separate. The dentist’s delivery system is cabinet mounted and can be tucked within the cabinets when not in use, away from the patients eye line when entering the room.
The A-dec 545 rear nurses delivery table gives the nurse a work surface to keep everything needed for the upcoming procedure, so the operator and nurse can practice ‘4 handed dentistry’. The same table also houses the suction tips, keeping them off the chair.
The ceiling mounted light is on a track along the centre of the room, meaning that the operator can literally position it to shine at any angle into the oral cavity.
The practice have all Carestream products for their x-ray and imaging, including the CS 7600 phosphor plate scanner for their intra-oral x-rays; the CS 3800 intra oral scanner; as well as the CS 8100 3D CBCT unit. The CS 8100 units are the bestselling CBCT units in Europe and have market leading image quality. They are very user friendly, quiet and have one of the smallest footprints of any unit in the market, fitting into a room as small as 1.2m x 1.4m. The CS 3800 makes digital impression capture fast and easy and the practice uses their CS 3800 intra-oral scanner for restorative, orthodontic or implant cases.
