    A builder I do bits for has asked me to come up with a design and quote for a new 3 surgery room dentist. The building is an old Barclays Bank that has recently shut down and is being converted. Can any think of any special requirements being a dentist? Haven't really thought about it much as only got asked this afternoon. It's going to be NHS if that makes any difference.

    Make sure you read section 710(Medical locations) in the bible as it specifically covers dentist surgery's.

    They need lots of sockets for all the bits of kit they have and some have compressors to run kit too.

    Have you got any form of spec?

    Brush and floss before you go there! Don't know why, seems like cleaning the car before you take it to the carwash to me but apparently it's compulsory.

    Last time I was in the dentist chair staring at the ceiling couldn't help but notice old halogen downlighters. Didn't have the heart to mention it and just thanked the dentist for the five minutes of pain he'd just inflicted on me.

    I bet all he used was some glorified CK pliers :D

    I guess the anaesthetic helped as well

    Hopefully the spec you pick up will indicate what the machines require for a supply , current ratings etc.
    You may need to speak to the machine suppliers regarding start up currents so the correct OCPD can be selected.
    You know the drill Lee :)

    When I was on my apprenticeship I'm sure I remember tubing out a dentist in SS conduit.

    think last time i went to a dentist was in 1976 when my 1965 filling fell out. it fell out again within 3 months and the stump can still rip a rare sirloin.

    I do bits of work for a dentist. Whilst there about a year ago I noticed the dedicated stand-up X-ray machine was simply plugged in with a standard plug.

    All the dentist's chairs have a built in X-ray too, but not sure about the spec of them. I had a quick glance at one of the CUs and they were all type B breakers in that one. There is at least one other board there also though.

    I also do joinery and that was what I was doing there on that particular occasion, so didn't take a lot of notice of the elecs.
