You Can Do Dentistry Anywhere!
Thank you for your interest in the Christian Dental Society and the possibility of using your talents in the missionary field. Dentists are equipment dependent. Either plan to take your favorite instruments or prepare to be flexible. Existing clinics generally have basic equipment and supplies available so that only your specific instrument needs require attention.
The Christian Dental Society does make available this portable equipment on a first come, first serve basis to current CDS members of at least Active Members Status (minimum of $195.00 annual dues). All equipment loans must be approved by the Home Office and the equipment must accompany the CDS member to and from the mission site. It is a requirement that all members planning to go on mission trips need to fill out a CDS Mission Application, sign the equipment loan policy and return with the appropriate equipment rental and deposit fees.
Portable Dental Equipment Available for Rent
The CDS member is responsible for the safe return of ALL equipment and instruments loaned within two weeks of returning from a mission. As CDS often has a short turn around time between projects, a late fee of $20.00 per day for each day past due will be deducted from the refundable deposit. The cost of shipping and appropriate repairs and clean up will be deducted from the deposit, if applicable.
Contact the CDS Home Office at 563-578-8887 for more information regarding refundable deposit fees and rental fees, or to request a Mission Application. Equipment is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. CDS does appreciate three (3) months advance notice for equipment requests.
