A-dec has acquired Dean Dental Systems, which produces environmentally friendly dry vacuum systems, oil-free compressors, and other products including remote controls, tandem vacuum systems, and water safety valves. It also provides remote monitoring services for its mechanical room equipment.

“By expanding our products and services to include both the dental operatory and mechanical room, we can delivery reliable, creative solutions for the entire dental office,” said Scott Parrish, A-dec president and CEO. 

Dean Dental Systems’ manufacturing facility will remain in Fenton, Missouri. Its co-owners Patrick Hertel and Bill Henning will remain with the company, now known as Dean Dental Systems by A-dec, under A-dec general management.

“With A-dec’s help, we’re going to be able to grow our capacity to sell Dean Dental Systems products and services to more customers, expand our product offering, and continue to innovate solutions for the dental industry,” said Hertel.
