Our specialists are available to visit any site in Africa, design your clinic and suggest the best equipment options. Our team also specializes in the manufacturing of a wide range of mobile clinics. We have designed and built medical, dental clinics and x-ray clinics into trailers, caravans, trucks, containers and trains. Early in the 1980’s Colgate decided to donate mobile dental clinics to many of the provincial health departments, which started a ball rolling. There was a massive demand for mobile healthcare within South Africa and Istrodent were lucky enough to have a director that specialised in this area in the overseas market. The majority of the clinics have been dental, however there are also mother and child units, dental and ophthalmologic, TB screening, Mammography, Audiometrid and we have even done a few GP buses with multiple consultation rooms. Istrodent played a crucial and instrumental role in the design, manufacture and fitting of the Phelophepa train which was sponsored by Transnet and the dental coaches were subsidised by the Colgate – Palmolive foundation in 1994. The resounding success of the Phelophepa prompted the demand for a 2nd healthcare train The Phelophepa II which was once again a Istrodent design. These trains travel on a 2 year cycle visiting, educating school children, assisting and treating a multitude of issues within an excess of 70 rural communities annually.
