In case you are a dentist within the UAE you’ve in all probability heard of Alphamed. Coming into the dental market in 2018 beneath the umbrella of Al Khayyat Investments they now symbolize main dental manufacturers corresponding to 3M, A-dec, Carestream, Durr, Hu-freidy and Zeiss.
Dental Information heard about their new dental showroom and training heart in Dubai Healthcare Metropolis opened in partnership with A-dec. In October our personal Dr. Tony Dib visited the ability to see what everyone seems to be speaking about, here’s what he discovered!
Positioned on the third ground of Constructing 26, Al Baker Constructing, Dubai Healthcare Metropolis I enter the Alphamed/A-dec facility and am greeted by Mustafa Abu Adas (Key Account Supervisor, Alphamed) and Nick Olive (Territory Supervisor, A-dec). I’m instantly struck by the number of gear choices on show and by the keenness of Mustafa and Nick as they begin to clarify how dentists and dental enterprise homeowners are utilizing the ability to assist educate their gear shopping for choices.
We begin by sitting at a big convention desk with espresso, there’s a giant TV on the head of the desk and that is the place ground plans, design ideas and configurations may be displayed and reviewed. Nick explains why conferences with clients at all times begin right here. “After we first meet clients right here we at all times begin by sitting down and discussing their plans and visions for his or her clinic. With so many gear choices accessible it’s helpful for us to know the shoppers priorities so we will deal with the choices which is likely to be most fitted.”
Mustafa explains that the shoppers imaginative and prescient actually impacts probably the most appropriate gear choices for them. ‘There are numerous components we have to take into account, for instance the shoppers finances and whether or not they have shared clinics that require ambidextrous items. The texture of clinic that clients goal for will also be very totally different. We could recommend totally different gear if the client is making a boutique VIP clinic or a household centered group type clinic.’
As we begin to take a look at the gear on show, I’m taken on a journey by the vary of A-dec chairs beginning with an A-dec 200 unit by to their flagship A-dec 500 VIP unit. Having the ability to see the gear so shut and having the chance to attempt utilizing the varied configurations with a moveable coaching head I begin to admire why dentists should discover it so helpful to go to this facility. Evaluating the items facet by facet I begin to think about how I would configure gear for my very own dream clinic.
A-dec is called a premium gear model and once you see the gear up shut you’ll be able to actually see and really feel the standard. What shocked me was how reasonably priced the A-dec product line is on the entry stage. Mustafa talks me by the native pricing for A-dec 200 and what number of choices can be found to personalize and improve the unit. Abdelmaguid explains ‘A-dec 200 has develop into highly regarded within the UAE as a easy dependable unit benefiting from the legendary A-dec high quality at an reasonably priced value. As with all A-dec gear you get a 5 12 months guarantee as commonplace’.
I actually loved experiencing the A-dec 500 arrange with USA type 12 o’clock supply system. I had by no means used one of these system earlier than and was shocked at how simple it was to make use of. Nick mentioned why this technique is so widespread in USA. ‘The A-dec 12 o’clock system is a novel providing available in the market permitting dentists to create an open affected person chair by mounting the dentist and assistants’ parts to a cupboard on the rear of the affected person chair. This method actually must be seen and tried earlier than shopping for, it’s a totally different manner of working and highly regarded with specialists who could have sufferers within the chair for lengthy intervals of time and profit from a big, shared working house with their assistant. Notably if they’re working towards true 4 handed dentistry’.
Having tried the varied configurations on provide I can see why Nick and Mustafa declare that it’s uncommon clients go to with out reconsidering the kind of gear they thought they wished. In the course of the go to we focus on many matters associated to dental gear corresponding to ergonomics, an infection management and affected person expertise. Nick is an authorized ergonomics evaluation specialist (CEAS) and explains that serving to dentists to pick out gear which permits them to enhance ergonomics of their clinics and cut back musculoskeletal ache is vital.
So, is there a cost for visiting the ability? Mustafa says ‘There isn’t any cost to go to our facility, in fact we hope that clients will selected to work with us whether or not with A-dec gear or our different gear manufacturers corresponding to Carestream and Zeiss however our recommendation and assist is at all times at no cost’.
And the way about dentists from exterior of the UAE? Nick says ‘We partnered with Alphamed to open this facility in Dubai for the advantage of our clients and companions throughout the area. We’ve already hosted clients from Oman, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait and sit up for welcoming many extra dentists to the ability’.
Visits to the Alphamed showroom are by appointment and may be organized by contacting Nick or Abdelmaguid.
