A-dec was founded in 1964 by husband and wife team, Ken and Joan Austin. When they started their business out of a small Quonset hut in their hometown, the couple never imagined the global success that A-dec enjoys today.

The company history of A-dec includes some of the industry's most revolutionary dental equipment solutions, and it's no wonder. Ken and Joan Austin never strayed from A-dec’s initial purpose: to make the best better. Whether it's advancing ergonomics or improving infection control, A-dec have brought continuous progression in efficiency and reliability to the world of dental care since 1964.

Think differently with A-dec

A-dec is committed to promoting patient, as well as dental team well being, and we strive to provide quality dental chairs that reflect this commitment.

A-dec five-year warranty

Not all dental equipment is created equal. Most dental companies simply assemble their products from ready-made parts. But A-dec manufactures a large majority of the components that go into our dental equipment— everything from tubing to dental chair cylinders—to ensure lasting quality and reliable performance. Adec’s 5 year warranty is the embodiment of this. The commitment to producing superior products is just one reason dentists consistently rank Adec highest for reliability and longterm value.
