A look back at how dental clinic chairs looked over the decades.

How many of you can remember when your dentist’s surgery looked like any of the images in the montage above?

We’re grateful to dental equipment supplies company KAVO for delving into their archives and sharing these interesting photographs with us.

Today’s 21st century surgery chair is a very different piece of equipment.

When we planned our new Glasgow dental clinic we aimed to source the very best in equipment and fixtures to ensure our patient experience is the best in terms of comfort and available treatment.

We’ve installed five KAVO chairs which ensure the patient’s experience is the most comfortable and stress-free as well as meeting the stringent hygiene, decontamination and safety standards.
