Your Armamentarium

Excellent patient care relies heavily on the materials and technology used in the treatment. Here is a selection of product offerings to consider adding to your armamentarium.

A | NOMAD® Pro 2 Handheld X-ray System

The NOMAD® Pro 2 Handheld X-ray System by Aribex has revolutionized the way dental X-rays are taken. The operator no longer must hide behind a wall, but can stay chairside with the patient, making it ideal for wiggly children and anxious or special needs patients. Most users find they can take x-rays in half the time as with wall-mounted systems, and with fewer retakes.
