The MDU-8 24V mobile dental unit is easy to set-up and is instinctive to use for anyone with dental training. The unit provides a complete array of the mechanical dental instruments required for a full range of dental treatments (high-speed, slow-seed, 3in1, ultrasonic scaler & light-cure).The high-speed handpiece provides extra illumination in the mouth, which is an invaluable addition in the domiciliary setting. The addition of a dental curing light provides the convenience of not having to pack fragile equipment separately, risking damage or forgetting it… An ultra-sonic scaler makes the unit valuable for the dentist, therapists and hygienists, allowing the full use of the clinical skill mix even outside of the surgery environment. The Lysta mini-suction unit provides high-quality and reliable suction power outside of the surgery. It performs at the same level as our, in-surgery suction unit, making treatment comfortable for the patient and improving safety for the dental team. Having a disposable VaxSac liner to collect the fluids, makes disposal simple and eliminates the inconvenience of draining & cleaning the system or replacing filters. With the addition of suction tubing, the unit can be used in all situations and deal with any difficulties in location or patient position. Combining the two units means we can turn any room into a dental surgery and perform a wide range of dental procedures outside the traditional surgery environment. So far the units have been used to provide care for in-patients on the wards of our community hospitals, residents in our elderly care homes, residents in our mental health care facilities and individuals in their own homes. The service this equipment enables us to provide has been welcomed by the nurses, care staff, families and patients, making the dental experience less stressful and more convenient for all involved. Secondary to this, it has also led to a reduced reliance on the Ambulance Transport Service, which has reduced costs to the NHS and excess workload to the Ambulance Service.
