MACABItech was hired to redesign and produce the latest 50 of Virtudent’s mobile dentistry kits for on-site dental care
Virtudent offers teledentistry services and on-site preventive dental care to their partner organizations. In their own words, “Virtudent makes the dental experience vastly more accessible, convenient, transparent and most importantly—all about the patient.”
The mobile dentistry kit contains everything the hygienists and dentists need to check and clean the patients teeth. The unit, when unpacked, has a full sized patient chair, hygienists chair, x-ray camera, water/suction system, and all other tools necessary to complete a regular dental check up or teeth cleaning procedure. When packed for transport, the unit has the foot-print of a shopping cart and has about the same mobility!
Virtudent wanted to enable hygienists to visit partner companies that provided dental insurance to their employees. By bringing the dental care to their partners’ offices, the employees of these organizations could get the dental care they needed without the time penalty associated with travelling to a dedicated dental practice. This would save both the employees and the employers time and money by providing proactive preventative care that if left unattended, could develop into a far costlier and more serious dental condition.
MACABItech was contracted to triple the number of mobile dentistry kits in Virtudent’s possession to facilitate their rapid nationwide expansion.To successfully deliver this project, MACABItech provided the following services:
The new and upgraded kits were successfully deployed to support the expansion of Virtudent across the United States. Based on the timely completion of the project and MACABItech’s ability to deliver 50 teledentistry systems, a new contract was agreed upon to upgrade existing dentistry systems inline with the new 4.0 standard.
In conjunction with nation-wide kit deployment, Virtudent also contracted MACABItech to completely reverse engineer their proprietary water suction unit. This facilitated MACABItech’s creation of a training regime for new engineers to assemble and test the systems before releasing them into the dental kits.
