An important part of any dental clinic is the dental equipment that it utilizes. These dental equipment pieces are the backbone of any dental services rendered by the dental clinic. All dental equipment must be up to date, in good repair and reliable. Dentists usually own or operate the dental equipment; they may also contract with a dental supplier who supplies dental supplies on behalf of the dentist.

Many people may not realize this but most dental offices provide patient transportation to and from the dentist’s office. There are many types of patient transportation including but not limited to: wheelchair, scooter, motorized wheelchairs, scooters, and/or a walker.
