equipment, the clinic is one of the most advanced ones in the capital.
The dental center’s own diagnostic department is equipped
with all types of modern X-ray apparatus. The most complex studies are
conducted here with the aid of a Carestream Dental three-dimensional computer
tomograph. The equipment is of great help to maxillofacial surgeons,
implantologists and orthodontists in designing the most accurate treatment
plan. A 3D image allows to see on the screen a three-dimensional jaw model in
all projections and at any angle. And the doctor can examine all tissues
separately layer by layer.
All treatment rooms of the clinic are equipped with X-ray
units for spot radiography. This way the doctor can control the treatment
process at any stage. Besides, the patient does not even need to leave the
dental chair to use the x-ray—the equipment is within reach of each doctor of

number of cases, among which is an extensive treatment program, inability to
use local anesthesia or panic attack when it comes to dental procedures.

The clinic is equipped with all types of dental lasers.
Equipment by Biolase—a recognized leader in the area of dental lasers—expands
the range of treatment options. In many cases a laser can replace a drill or a
scalpel. In addition, the patient, even though he or she is not a specialist,

of the Ministry of Defense of the USSR” built in 1947, where the clinic is
located today, is included in the list of objects of cultural heritage of
regional significance. The building was designed by one of the most
sought-after architects of the Soviet Union—Lev Rudnev, who also built the

The treatment rooms of the clinic are equipped with dental
microscopes. It is well known that the use of a microscope allows a more
accurate and high-quality treatment. Most often, magnification is required when

Magnification allows for more effective treatment of caries or diagnostics of
problems that are not visible to the naked eye. Cracks in the teeth, for
Strict compliance with aseptic techniques and
sanitary-epidemiological regime is ensured by the Centralized Sterilization
Department (CSD) established in the clinic. It is equipped with the most
advanced equipment for high-quality disinfection and sterilization of medical
instruments and devices. The complete complex of the CSD also includes Steelco
washers, which provide high-quality preparation of reusable instruments for
sterilization. This important complex allows to minimize the risk of cross
infection between patients and the clinic staff.
Protection against infections also lies with the
multifunctional Castellini units, which exercise multi-level infection control.
Equipping the unit with hygiene-related systems creates an additional barrier
to cross infection. Dental chairs make all procedures extremely comfortable
both for the doctor and the patient
Among the most important features of the medical center is
its own dental prosthetic laboratory with 10 workplaces. The laboratory uses
digital technologies, including 3D prototyping, and has a high-precision
milling center. The cutting-edge technologies allow for minimization of the
order waiting time, ensuring of perfect color reproduction and high quality of
products. The laboratory has its own foundry, allowing not only to accelerate
the production process but also to fully control all work stages.
The basement of the dental clinic accommodates aspiration
and compressor stations to ensure uninterrupted operation of the facility.
Advantages of the equipment include low noise and vibration, which was
extremely important for compliance with the rules for its installation in a
residential building, especially one classified as the object of cultural

The mysterious word ‘Jamaica’ conjures up visions of a distant tropical island of paradise with snowy beaches and impenetrable jungle. Although there are beaches and jungle the real life is far from paradise. Jamaica is a relatively poor country with less developed healthcare industry and large percentage of very poor people. There is a fairly acute problem with dentistry: just 70 dentists per 2.8 million inhabitants. Most of dentists provide paid services only, and 80% of people can hardly afford to make use of such services. Admittedly, there are state hospitals but appointments are booked for the next few years. “Do you want to have your teeth attended? We may set up your appointment for 2020”. That is why many people are deprived of timely assistance, and volunteer missions appear to be the only solution.
