KaVo uniQa ticks all the boxes

A/Prof. Roy Judge is the owner of ‘Prosthodontics Plus’ in Moonee Ponds Victoria. For over 30 years he has worked in both public and private sectors and has accumulated a vast amount of experience using a variety of equipment. Until now though, he hasn’t had the opportunity to work on a KaVo treatment unit.

The Moonee Ponds practice he acquired came with two existing treatment units which were ageing and would soon require an upgrade. Being the first time in his career that he would purchase his own treatment unit, A/Prof. Judge started the research process early:

“Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, I knew there was going to be a time in the future where I would need to invest in my own equipment. After researching treatment units extensively for 4-5 years, KaVo was always going to be high on my wish list when the time came to decide. This was primarily based on the well-known reliability and reputation for quality and engineering that’s synonymous with the KaVo brand.”

When one of the two existing chairs in his clinic ultimately decided to break down, A/Prof Judge needed to get back into the showrooms and make a decision: 
“The decision-making process didn’t take very long. When I stepped into the Henry Schein Showroom in Melbourne and saw the new KaVo uniQa, I quickly realised Chairs and dental units KaVo uniQa ticks all the boxes Buyers Guideit was going to fulfil all my clinical requirements and be user friendly for my team. Almost immediately, the paperwork was signed, and the installation date confirmed.”


Tuesday 7th February 2023 was installation day, and the technician from Henry Schein, Steve Wilkinson, was on site: “Steve was fantastic, he was on time and worked throughout the day in a polite, time efficient and neat manner. What really came across in my dealings with Steve were the years of experience he had working with equipment and the level of pride he has in the KaVo product line.”

Fit out was completed that afternoon in preparation for a full clinical day on Wednesday 8th February.

“I was able to perform the full range of clinical procedures during a busy day without a misstep or concern. The overhead lighting on this unit is fantastic, delivering a wide working field with a great and user-friendly resin function. The speed control of the handpieces is robust and straightforward, allowing me access and control for the most difficult preparations. My team were also impressed with the chairs fully integrated hygiene centre. At the end of a busy day one, I was very happy with my decision to purchase a KaVo uniQa.”
