Portable Dental Equipment Rental

Planning a dental service expedition? To help facilitate a great experience with dental humanitarian service, the Academy has a number of Adec portable dental delivery units available for rent. These units come packaged in a hard case and include a high and low speed handpiece, air/water syringe, air-driven suction, and a high pressure hose.

Visit academyofldsdentists.com/service/ service-resources for a wealth of information on all aspects of planning and carrying out a dental service expedition, including videos about the portable dental units and how to use them.

Academy members can rent the Adec units for a minimal cost of $50 when current with their membership dues. Non-Academy members can rent the unit for $150. An extra $50 is needed when a unit is shipped rather than picked up personally, which covers added wear and tear during extra shipping and additional time the unit is rented out.

Normal wear and tear is expected, which the rental cost helps to cover. Sometimes units have been returned with pieces missing and other issues above and beyond normal wear and tear. To help with this situation, a small security deposit is paid, which is refunded when the unit is returned with all rental requirements being met. With good care, these units will be available for many future dental service expeditions.

One of our loyal Academy members, David Dickerson, has been taking care of equipment rental for over 15 years. This is a big effort that takes a great deal of time on David’s part, all as a volunteer. His efforts really make such a positive difference for other Academy members as they work to make a dental service project become a reality. Thank you, David!
