Dental Depot Adec Chair 01

The A-dec 200: Quality You Can Afford

The A-dec 200 is an excellent entry-level chair. It’s more affordable than the 300, 400 or 500 models, but is still backed by A-dec’s five-year warranty and well-known reliability. If you’re looking for a practical chair to expand your practice or kick-start your new clinic, this is a dependable choice.

Available in a complete system, the A-dec 200 offers all the dental equipment you need to treat your
patients with a high level of care. The system includes a dental chair, delivery system, assistant’s instrumentation, dental light, and support center with cuspidor.

The A-dec 300: Streamlined Power

If you like the A-dec 500, but want something a little smaller, lighter and less expensive, the A-dec 300 is the way to go. Dentists have often described the A-dec 300 as a Ferrari engine stuffed inside a Mini Cooper! Its streamlined design is perfect for smaller rooms and clinics that require versatility. The chair is also easier to manoeuvre and has fewer parts, which means it requires less maintenance.

Despite its compact size, you don’t have to sacrifice on functionality with the A-dec 300. Besides a spot for a single air-water syringe and electric handpieces, you can integrate up to two accessories, including an intraoral camera, curing light or ultrasonic instrument.

We stock both the A-dec 300 Pedestal and the A-dec 300 Radius at Dental Depot.

The A-dec 400: Versatile Comfort

The A-dec 400 marries modest luxury with functionality. It has an ambidextrous configuration to accommodate staff preferences, as well as Radius delivery compatibility for smooth and quick chair rotation. If you’re looking for a dental chair that’s both ergonomic for you and comfortable for your patients, then this is the chair for you!

With some chairs, you often have to choose between comfort and functionality. But not with the A-dec 400 – this is the ultimate win-win scenario.

The A-dec 500:t

The A-dec 500 is certainly the biggest investment in our range, but with good reason. It’s more comfortable than other chairs available and allows you to get close enough to your patients to maintain a healthy posture.

Supported by a full range of integrated possibilities, the A-dec 500 is unmatched in its innovation. The integrated touchpad gives you easy control of the chair, cuspidor and dental light, while the anatomically shaped contours reduce patient pressure points. The A-dec 500 is a premium chair for superior dentistry.
