VERSAILLES, Ohio--Midmark Corporation has been selected by the Benjamin W. Dunn Dental Clinic at Lackland Air Force Base, the largest dental clinic in the U.S. Air Force, to provide and install 82 dental operatories. A team of Midmark customer service, technical support and logistics specialists joined men and women from the Air Force in removing old equipment and installing new operatories duing a weekend. The weekend installation was important in avoiding an interruption in the dental services provided by the clinic. “With 82 operatories, the Dunn Dental Clinic provides dentistry services every day to men and women who serve our country, so it was vital that we work to ensure a smooth installation over a weekend without interrupting the clinic’s regular schedule,” said Eric Shirley, Midmark vice president and general manager, dental division. “We began replacing equipment on a Friday afternoon and the entire clinic was functioning with new operatories by Monday morning.” The Dunn Dental Clinic provides dental health services for active duty personnel in the 37th Training Wing and several other military training groups. In addition, the clinic is part of the Air Force dental residency training flagship, which also includes MacKown Dental Clinic. The clinic offers an advanced general dentistry residency program, a Tri-Service orthodontic residency program, and many dental continuing education programs. The dental operatories installed at Dunn Dental Clinic included UltraComfort dental chairs with Procenter Instrument Delivery Systems, dental assistant instruments, operator stools, and dental grade HD monitors. The new operatories are part of a renovation effort to better train the dental residents, as well as treat patients.For more information about Midmark, visit the company’s Web site at read more about Midmark, go to Midmark.To comment on this topic, go to
