I was driving to my parents’ place on the weekend when I passed by a dental clinic that boasted the installation of the first dental chair in British Columbia designed specifically for wheelchair patients. It was then I realized I never thought about how people in wheelchairs go to the dentist. I assumed they just wheeled themselves in and then either moved themselves or were assisted into the regular chair that every dentist office has.

It got me thinking and I guess it’s easier for the wheelchair patient to stay in their chair instead of having to move from one place to another for the dental work. I did the some Googling and there’s a gallery of supposedly the only type of chair in the world that accommodates wheelchair patients. Interesting!
