"Dental Button" Kills the Dentist’s Drill

Medical Button Switch manufactured by Switchcraft used by dentists as a "kill switch" to give patients control over the drilling procedure

Have you ever been sitting in the dentist’s office getting a cavity filled and just want to yank the drill out of the dentist’s hand to keep him from drilling anymore? Apparently, it is such a common phenomenon at the dentist’s office that one of our customers added a Switchcraft cordette assembly to their dental drill equipment.

The patient can stop the drill if needed with the press of a button. It helps to make the patient more comfortable and allows the dentist to keep working without worry that they are causing the patient pain. In addition, it makes patients more comfortable with the dentist, thereby resulting in less appointment cancellations.

If you have an application similar to this or something that needs custom cables, we can help!
