Carestream Dental donates intraoral sensors to new Mercy Ship

By DrBicuspid Staff

October 16, 2020 -- Carestream Dental has donated six RVG 6200 intraoral sensors, as well as software and support, to outfit Mercy Ships' newest addition, Global Mercy. The nongovernmental organization (NGO) hospital ship will head to Africa for its maiden voyage sometime next year, and the RVG 6200s will support an onshore dental clinic.

After launching, Global Mercy will be staffed by 600 volunteer medical and dental healthcare workers to provide a safe and clean surgical environment to various African nations. Mercy Ships expects Global Mercy to see 150,000 patients over the course of its anticipated 50-year life span. The ship will also include an educational space so local doctors can be trained on the latest techniques and best practices, Mercy Ships said.
