Practice for Well-being

SCHOTT Spezialglas AG, Standort Grünenplan glass washbasins have many admirers for their elegant and functional design not only in the home bathroom, but also in dental practices.

An appointment with the dentist is notorious for being an unpleasant experience. In the waiting room, a collection of magazines offers a temporary distraction from the patient’s anxiety, however, this is abruptly interrupted when he/she is called to the treatment room. The patient enters and reclines in the chair, immediately noticing small, but intimidating drill heads and intricate tools that line the working station. With little, if anything, to divert attention from these feared devices, the patient feels uncomfortable and nervous.
Hygienic and elegant: A special coating allows water to run off smoothly.
In a step towards making this environment more aesthetically pleasing, SCHOTT Switzerland has supplied 250 glass washbasins specifically for treatment chairs to Mikrona Technologie AG, a company based near Zurich with a reputation for innovative dental technology. The “Orthora 200“ chair has been designed in cooperation with practicing orthodontists, the company’s own specialists and external product designers. It combines all the features of a futuristic treatment unit aimed at the individual requirements of orthodontics. The sleek design of the unit is intended to put the patient at ease, while providing the dentist with a state-of-the-art apparatus. SCHOTT Spezialglas AG, Standort Grünenplan glass washbasins are an excellent complement to the innovative design of the chair. They come in different colors such as blue, gray or satin finish white and in a variety of edge finishes. Practically, glass is a material that fulfills every hygienic requirement. In addition, these glass washbasins features a special “Pearl Finish“ surface coating, which enables water to run off very smoothly and significantly reduces soiling.
