A-dec LED Dental Operatory Light is optically engineered specifically for dentists and the dental operatory. It reduces eyestrain and provides optimal ergonomics while ensuring ample illumination, clarity, and depth during treatment. It features multiple intensity levels, cure-safe mode, low cost of ownership, and intuitive ergonomics. The light reduces eye fatigue because of how its “stadium effect” mitigates shadows and maintains a uniform light pattern. Visit for more information.
