I love A-dec’s equipment because I have everything I need at my fingertips without having to have messy cables and cords from all of the various instruments we require. I can’t tell you how easy it is to use and how happy I am to make the most of my equipment.

Just because you buy it doesn’t mean you’ll use it. If it’s too clunky, time consuming or hard to maintain, you stop using it. I definitely use what I purchased (from A-dec)because it’s so easy to use.

When did you start using this product?

I started using the product when I opened my office in March of 2008.

Why was this product a good fit for your needs?

I wanted to create an efficient, state-of-the-art facility in which staff and patients could appreciate our services and the methods and equipment that help us achieve this goal. I thought this product met that criteria.

How has it worked out for you so far?

I know there is a difference in my delivery of care and I can confidently tell patients that I can treat them more comfortably, quickly and with better accuracy.

What was the process of incorporating this product like?

Incorporating the product was easy because I built the office new. A-dec allowed me to configure whatever I wanted in my delivery system to meet the needs of different rooms. When changes have to be made, it’s pretty easy to rearrange the position and settings of the whole operatory equipment set up.

I have multiple hygienists and doctors working at our office and all of them found the systems to work for them. Efficiency is really important when you are trying to keep the price of doing dentistry low for everyone.

What are the best aspects of this product?

The chairs are soft, quiet and beautiful. The delivery system is easy to clean, adaptive to patient and provider. The handpiece is quiet, provides incredible visualization and consistently preps teeth at the desired setting.

What are its biggest benefits?

Although this equipment may cost more initially, it makes our jobs easier. Electric LED handpieces can prep teeth faster than air-driven counterparts and they really don’t sound as whiny, either.

What has the response to this product been from patients and staff?

Our patients and our staff frequently tell me how much better our office looks and feels compared to their previous office. I think they can tell that, by making their experience more comfortable, we care about them.

Why would you recommend this product to a colleague?

I would definitely recommend the product to others because you can’t beat the comfort and efficiency that it provides.
