Durability That Lasts for Decades

A-dec dental equipment is legendary for its long-lasting reliability. The entire manufacturing process is carefully managed, from raw materials to final assembly, in A-dec’s state-of-the-art facilities.

Every dental chair, dental light, and delivery system is designed, engineered, built and tested to ensure total quality—and an equipment lifespan of 20 years or more.

Exceptional Long-Term Value

Many schools and institutions have discovered that the true cost of dental equipment goes far beyond the initial purchase price. To get the maximum value for your budget, remember to factor in reliability, maintenance, training, downtime, parts availability, and future expandability in your decision.

As you compare costs over time, you’ll see that A-dec offers an exceptional combination of quality, durability, and long-term value, making it a wise investment.

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

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.
