How to buy a dental chair: Start with 3 simple questions.

Want to be sure you select the right chair for your dental office?

The needs of every dental office and its patients vary. Sure, some general guidelines may stretch across the entire profession of dentistry, but when it comes down to it, what does your chair need to be capable of to suit you and your patients?

The process of buying a dental chair is simple when it’s broken down into three categories: function, fabric and color.


Fusion Package from Forest Dental, shown, features a patient chair with flip-down armrests that make it easy for your patients to get in and out.
  1. Function. What do you need your chair to do?
    How intricate do you want the controls to be? The Midmark UltraComfort Dental Chair (shown at top) offers four programmable presets to create effortless placement of both the patient and the chair. Do you need it to recline a little or a lot? How much do you need it to raise or lower? How accessible does it need to be? The Fusion Package from Forest Dental, shown above, features a patient chair with flip-down armrests that make it easy for your patients to get in and out. Backrest — narrow or wide? Select a chair that can do all that you need it to.
DCI Edge Series 5 Chair, shown, offers four layers of memory foam to ensure patients are always comfortable.

2. Fabric. What makes your patients the most comfortable?
From Ultraleather to pearlized or nauga soft upholstery, the material of your chair matters. A chair with memory foam like the DCI Edge Series 5 Chair (shown above) offers four layers of memory foam to ensure patients are at ease. Also, select a fabric that remains clean with everyday use.

The 1800 Spirit Dental Chair from Pelton & Crane, shown, is available in 37 color options.

3. Color. How can a chair complement your color scheme? Match your dental chair to the rest of your equipment, finishes and overall style. The 1800 Spirit Dental Chair from Pelton & Crane (shown above) is available in 37 color options. The color of your chair should not only match the office but should also balance it.

Compact, Smart, Affordable 3D from ACTEON: Introducing X-Mind® prime

Real innovation meets true simplicity in a zero-footprint unit that installs practically anywhere in one hour and offers 2D and 3D capability.

The remarkably compact, lightweight, wall-mounted X-Mind prime 3D CBCT from ACTEON puts advanced capabilities within reach of more dental practices—especially those needing, or simply wanting, a unit that occupies less room.

X-Mind prime offers so much capability, in so little space. The latest addition to ACTEON’s 2D and 3D CBCT panoramic product line blends cutting-edge technology with enhanced simplicity. It demonstrates remarkable ingenuity by combining 2D and 3D technologies into a unit the size of a small chair. Yet, because it’s wall mounted, takes up no floor space.

Offering a wide range of panoramic (24) and CBCT (32) options, X-Mind prime covers many clinical applications, including implantology, endodontics, TMJ and sinus imaging. Practitioners can also scan 3D objects such as plaster models and silicone impressions, opening up a range of new possibilities.

When it comes to installation, X-Mind prime is especially flexible and designed to fit into even narrow spaces. At just 148 pounds, its light weight means it can go places where larger, heavier units can’t. X-Mind prime ships fully assembled. The speed of installation is unmatched: one box, one technician, two steps and that’s all. It does not interrupt a practice’s daily work and operations, so there’s no need to turn the schedule upside down on the day it arrives.

Another benefit of the unit: ease of use. Alignment lasers make correct patient positioning simple. Telescopic columns are adjustable from the simple control panel, and the unit is accessible for wheelchair users. Automatic chin support recognition, based on the type of operation selected, means error-free patient positioning.

The software keeps it simple, too. ACTEON Imaging Suite presents fully integrated, advanced and open architecture. With intuitive navigation and advanced functionality, it manages images for scanning and viewing as received from all ACTEON imaging devices and more. One minute is all it takes to edit an implant report.

In addition to support from Benco Dental, training for operation, patient positioning, and software can be provided in person by the local ACTEON rep. Plus, the ACTEON staff of technical service reps are just a phone call away to provide remote support if needed. Training videos may be found at http://www.acteongroup.com

“We’re committed to offering best of breed products to our customers,” said Sue Evans, Director of Equipment Merchandising for Benco Dental. “The X-Mind prime combines space efficiency, ease of installation and operation, and affordability with genuine overall capability.”
