BurmaDent dental charity successfully treats 100 patients on average per day using NewCoDent mobile dental units and accessories.
01/01/2016

In January 2016 our West London Dental Centres volunteer team of 3 dental nurses and 5 dentists returned to Lake Inle in Burma on behalf of the dental charity Burmadent. Our primary mission was to provide urgent dental care to mainly orphans, and in addition the impoverished communities in villages around the lake, but then to try to develop a more conservative approach to dental treatment. We knew that in order to do this we needed reliable, high-quality mobile surgery equipment. Burmadent had been recommended to Siggy, and so had purchased 2 full-spec mobile dental units from NewCodent. This trip was our first opportunity to use the mobile units.

Each day we loaded up the various aluminium boxes onto the truck and visited a different area. Setting up the equipment was very easy, as all the cables and fittings were bespoke and couldn’t be confused. The various boxes were not heavy, and the team were able to set up ready for a clinic in about 20 minutes. Once connected, we were able to undertake good quality restorative dentistry using the built in high speed handpieces, chairside lights, light curing handpieces, suction and ultrasonic scalers. In addition extractions and even minor oral surgery were within our capabilities. Sometimes we set up in places without electricity, so simply plugged into our own generator and carried on! The end-of-day process to pack up was equally simple.

The equipment was very well designed, clearly with close attention to detail and the requirements needed to create an excellent mobile dental unit.

With these mobile dental units we treated on average about 100 patients per day. When undertaking dental treatment away from a clinic, for example under a tin roof or underneath the stairs of a temple, it is essential to be confident that the equipment would be reliable and efficient.

We found the NewCoDent mobile units to be robust, easy to assemble and use, and were very effective in functionality. It was also reassuring to know that should we have had any problems, we could rely on the direct and immediate personal support offered to us by Siggy and Shantie.

We are already looking forward to our next volunteer trip, and to using the mobile units to their potential again, helping remote communities to access dental care. On behalf of my team, I should like to thank Siggy and Shantie for their excellent product and service, and would have no hesitation in recommending them to the wider profession.
