As the endodontic dental market continues to expand, Boyd Industries is proud to introduce its newest product, specifically designed for endodontic professionals. The M3100LC endodontic treatment chair offers several unique features and will be on display during the AAE’s Annual Meeting, to be held April 26–29 in New Orleans.
(Clearwater, FL) April 10, 2017—Even with income fluctuations in the dental industry as a result of the Great Recession, endodontists consistently outperform their colleagues. During years of peak performance from 2000–2014, endodontic annual incomes averaged almost $67,000 more than all other specialists combined.(1) To meet the needs of professionals in this field, Boyd Industries is proud to introduce the company’s newest dental chair technology, the M3100LC endodontic chair.
According to the most recent data, post-recession incomes for endodontists have started to climb, with professionals in this specialty field now earning almost $145,000 more than general dental practitioners and still more than other specialists.(1) Even when endodontist incomes fell during the recession, professionals in the specialty still out-earned other dental specialists, bringing home an average of $85,000 to $100,000 more than all other specialists combined.(1) Endodontists have consistently earned the second-highest incomes of any dental professionals, second only to oral surgeons.(1)
The field of endodontics is expected to dominate the dental market as demand for services increases. Currently, over 15 million root canals are performed every year,(2) with more than half of all patients preferring to seek treatment from these specialists rather than from general dental practitioners.(2)
This year, professionals in the endodontic industry are meeting to network, exhibit products, and increase their knowledge of the field at the American Association of Endodontists (AAE) Annual Meeting, which is being held in New Orleans from April 26–29.(3) Attendees will have a chance to view Boyd’s new endodontic treatment chair, the M3100LC, which is specifically designed for endodontic procedures.
Kurt Schwarz, Vice President of Sales at Boyd Industries, says, “We’re excited to launch our product in time for the AAE Annual Meeting. Attendees will have the perfect opportunity to view product demonstrations and gain an understanding of the many benefits this chair offers endodontic professionals.”
The M3100LC endodontic treatment chair was specifically tailored to assist endodontists with correct patient positioning during a variety of endodontic procedures. It features several unique components, including an exclusive vertical lift base rated for patients up to 500 lbs that eliminates the possibility of patient translation during procedures. An integrated swivel base also allows endodontists to easily adjust the patient’s position. Activation of the
swivel base locking mechanism prevents further patient movement once the patient is in proper alignment.
Additionally, the M3100LC features control switches for base and chair back movements located on both sides of the chair back, allowing for easy access by the doctor and incorporating three memory presets and “home” buttons, providing easy patient positioning. The winged chair back features memory foam and Ultraleather Pro upholstery, ensuring patient comfort for the duration of the procedure.
Boyd Industries is proud to offer high-quality, specifically designed dental equipment to assist a variety of dental specialists during treatments. With the purchase of specially designed endodontic equipment such as the M3100LC treatment chair, endodontists can help to ensure continued patient treatment success while ultimately reducing costs related to the maintenance or replacement of lower-quality or faulty dental equipment.
