Portable Dental Equipment
To help communities and organizations promote public dental health activities, the Oral Health Program offers portable dental equipment for use by hygienists and/or dentists who wish to do outreach in their community. The portable dental equipment set consists of a portable dental unit with a fiberoptic high-speed handpiece, slow-speed handpiece, slow speed motor, and three dental handpiece attachments, portable tray stand with case, patient chair with case, operator’s stool with case, portable light with case, and autoclave. If you are interested in borrowing the equipment, contact the coordinator for your county from the map below. There is no fee for equipment use but transport of the equipment is the responsibility of the borrower. The coordinator will instruct you on set-up and disassembly. On return you will be asked to supply some information on equipment use (i.e., total number of patients treated, total # of dental sealants placed, etc.).
