Dental Chairs - How to Choose

Innovative, Ergonomic Solutions for your Surgery

Dental Chairs are one of the largest investments of any practice. They are the real workhorses of any surgery and need to be robust enough to withstand the demands of today's demand.

Hague Dental Supplies are a leading UK supplier of new and used chair packages including world-leading brands including A-dec and Belmont. With a focus on high-quality support and engineering, our team have been designing surgeries, installing and maintaining treatment centres for over 25 years. On this page, we help explore which of these quality manufacturer's products might suit you and your practice best.

History suggests that an American dentist, Josiah Flagg, created the first adjustable chair in the late 18th century, adapting a wooden chair by adding an instrument tray on one side, as well as a movable headrest. Over the years this equipment has evolved and, perhaps most excitingly, in the 20th century, the first-ever treatment unit came into being, incorporating air, water, gas, and electricity into one handy piece of equipment.

At this point, while patients were sitting more comfortably than ever before, for the most part, dentists were still standing – and their backs and necks were not thanking them for it. By 1958, however, John Naughton had created a chair with an articulated seat and back, which marked the introduction of what we know call four-handed dentistry.

Today, we have fully embraced the use of a chair that is comfortable for both patient and user and incorporates some incredible benefits that reflect issues such as need, convenience, infection control requirements, and environmental considerations. Sometimes, however, the extensive choice and brands available can feel overwhelming.

Experience the Best - Side By Side

Our team believe that its essential that you 'try and before you buy'. Too often in our industry we hear of people purchasing equipment solely out of a brochure. Investing large amounts of equipment and then only upon install, finding it is not right for the room and/or the person using it.

Visit our showrooms at your convenience including evenings and weekends. 

Let our team give you the confidence that you are making an informed choice.

Their collective knowledge and expertise in the market, coupled with their willingness to provide cost effective solutions to some challenging issues, was a winning formula.
