TUE, JUN 27, 2023 11:16 CET Finnish healthcare technology manufacturer Planmeca has donated five fully furnished mobile dental clinics to Ukraine. The mobile clinics were delivered to their destination on 21 June 2023.
Planmeca has donated five mobile dental clinics to Ukraine to help deliver dental services in the war-torn country. Each mobile clinic is equipped with a high-tech Planmeca dental unit, an autoclave, and other necessary equipment and instruments needed to provide fundamental dental care.
The mobile clinic concept was recently developed in cooperation with Planmeca’s Finnish distributor Plandent to help offer dental care in areas situated far from dental clinics or to patients who would otherwise have difficulty accessing care.
“We felt that donating these mobile clinics was the most concrete and effective way to help and contribute our share to a country that is currently facing a challenging time. The clinics are fully equipped with state-of-the-art dental solutions and designed to provide much-needed dental care to those who have been affected by the conflict and don’t have access to dental care. This initiative is about more than just dental care, it is a symbol of hope and solidarity which shows that the people of Ukraine are not alone and that we stand with them in their time of need,” says Planmeca’s Area Export Manager Mr Denys Farnalskiy.
LM-Dental, a Planmeca subsidiary, played an active role in the donation efforts by providing a diverse range of hand instruments that are crucial for performing routine dental treatments.
Teollisuusmuutot, a Finnish company specialised in hauling services, also contributed by lifting the clinic vans onto trailers free of charge.
The clinics were delivered to Ukraine with the help of Planmeca’s Ukrainian distributor, Company Ukr-Medmarket, which will provide the necessary support and maintenance for the mobile dental clinics on a local level.
