Designed for Your Specific Needs

From concept to installation, A-dec works with you to ensure the best solution for your requirements—whether it’s a single operatory or an entire building. It starts with understanding your goals, technology requirements, and space limitations.

By partnering with you even before an architect is involved, A-dec designers can create a plan for maximum workflow and efficiency. From there, you can expect a project plan and schematic to more clearly visualize exactly what you’re ordering.

And because A-dec has a dedicated team of engineers, creating a special product or equipment modification is always an option. You can depend on A-dec to help you realize your vision.

Dedicated Support and Project Management

Every A-dec client has a dedicated team of specialists who leave no detail to chance. This is possible because A-dec has decades of experience serving school and government accounts and more representatives than any other dental manufacturer. 

This enables you and your A-dec representative to build a solid partnership that addresses your needs for equipment, training, and technical support.

Partnering with Dental Schools

From the beginning, A-dec’s mission has been to improve dentistry by supporting the greater dental community. That includes educators on the leading edge of dentistry, who are training the next generation of clinicians.

A-dec products have evolved to meet the particular needs of school settings. The development of radius delivery systems, for example, came directly from working to meet educators’ specific space and user requirements.

Today, A-dec products are helping dental students around the world develop their clinical skills. It’s part of our core commitment to ensure an optimum learning environment, one lab at a time.

The A-dec Simulator: An Advanced Learning Tool

The A-dec Simulator is designed to accelerate learning and elevate clinical competency. By replicating the spatial dynamics of a clinical setting, it enhances students’ transition from simulation lab to clinic.

The simulator integrates multiple clinical devices including electric motors, ultrasonic instruments, and intraoral cameras. The versatile design accommodates both left- and right-handed students and can be customized for manikin preference.

And because the A-dec Simulator reinforces correct positioning and posture, students learn the important ergonomic skills they will need for longer, healthier careers.

Smart Solutions for Government Clinics

A-dec dental equipment supports the need for efficiency and workflow in government clinic settings. All without a single compromise to thoughtful design, durability, and patient comfort.

Your A-dec representative can share best practices and effective designs implemented in other clinics. Utilizing standardized setups across military bases, hospitals or health clinics creates a familiar layout, making it easier for doctors and other transferring personnel to quickly get up to speed.

A Top Choice Worldwide

A-dec is the preferred choice for more than 80% of North American dental schools. And, chosen more often than all other manufacturers combined for dental schools and government clinics in over 100 countries worldwide.

Considering the rigorous selection process for public bids and tenders involving educators, administrators, dentists, accountants, procurement officers, property engineers, volumes of third-party data—and lengthy evaluation periods—that’s a lot of criteria to pass. 

Even institutions on fixed or very tight budgets select A-dec more often than any other brand, based on the combination of quality, reliability, years of service, and low total cost of ownership.
