Thanks to the recent availability of portable equipment and related supplies, all practitioners are presented with new opportunities. No longer just an option for debt-strapped graduates who can`t afford a new office, mobile dentistry now can be thought of as an adjunct to an already existing business. One or two days a week of unused time can be put to good use by taking a practice into the community. Working at facilities and homes is a great way to become visible in the community, while still turning a profit.
A portable practice can even appeal to doctors who are approaching retirement age. Portable dentistry allows them to close down the office without giving up their professional life. Another benefit of being mobile is that any dentist always has backup equipment available, in case of theft or damage to his/her regular office.
Aseptico, headquartered in Kirkland, Wash., has been designing and manufacturing dental equipment since 1980. It has since become a world leader in providing portable dental equipment, including entire suites.
