In January 2016 our West London Dental Centres volunteer team of 3 dental nurses and 5 dentists returned to Lake Inle in Burma on behalf of the dental charity Burmadent. Our primary mission was to provide urgent dental care to mainly orphans, and in addition the impoverished communities in villages around the lake, but then to try to develop a more conservative approach to dental treatment. We knew that in order to do this we needed reliable, high-quality mobile surgery equipment. Burmadent had been recommended to Siggy, and so had purchased 2 full-spec mobile dental units from NewCodent. This trip was our first opportunity to use the mobile units.
Each day we loaded up the various aluminium boxes onto the truck and visited a different area. Setting up the equipment was very easy, as all the cables and fittings were bespoke and couldn’t be confused. The various boxes were not heavy, and the team were able to set up ready for a clinic in about 20 minutes. Once connected, we were able to undertake good quality restorative dentistry using the built in high speed handpieces, chairside lights, light curing handpieces, suction and ultrasonic scalers. In addition extractions and even minor oral surgery were within our capabilities. Sometimes we set up in places without electricity, so simply plugged into our own generator and carried on! The end-of-day process to pack up was equally simple.
The equipment was very well designed, clearly with close attention to detail and the requirements needed to create an excellent mobile dental unit.
With these mobile dental units we treated on average about 100 patients per day. When undertaking dental treatment away from a clinic, for example under a tin roof or underneath the stairs of a temple, it is essential to be confident that the equipment would be reliable and efficient.
We found the NewCoDent mobile units to be robust, easy to assemble and use, and were very effective in functionality. It was also reassuring to know that should we have had any problems, we could rely on the direct and immediate personal support offered to us by Siggy and Shantie.
We are already looking forward to our next volunteer trip, and to using the mobile units to their potential again, helping remote communities to access dental care. On behalf of my team, I should like to thank Siggy and Shantie for their excellent product and service, and would have no hesitation in recommending them to the wider profession.

The day started with a special visit from Her Royal Highness Queen Sylvia Nagginda Nnabagereka of Buganda Kingdom where a Siggi G Jokumsen, Mangining Director of NewCoDent Ltd demonstrated the Newcodent MDU 8 - 24 V Portable Dental in action.
We were also pleased to have met Mr Alan Wilkinson Operation Director of Concept Clinics International of Rotherham who generously offered training for Ugandan dentists when they are ready to start using the Newcodent Portable dental unit.
As one Ugandan dentist stated at the Convention this is dentistry out of a box and we can not wait to get it to Uganda. Many thanks Mr. Willy Mutenza Chairman of the Ugandan Convention UK for a truly memorable day!
Dear Siggi & Shantie,
I would like to thank you for coming down to Winchester to demonstrate you superb portable dental unit, it was a pleasure for me to buy your demonstration model, which I brought back to Trinidad.
When I phoned you with a small problem, you straight away said "I will be on the next plain to Port of Spain in Trinidad" I have never had this sort of service from any of my suppliers even when I had my practice in Croydon England.
The problem solved as soon as you arrived, you took the unit away and brought it back the next day in full working order. What a fantastic service.
A few photos was taken from your visit and I take pleasure in sending them herewith, if you can use for your web pages feel free as it will give us both some publicity.
With best regards to a very nice couple and thank you for your service and I hope you enjoyed your stay in Trinidad & Tobago.

We arrived in Nepal and as promised by Siggi Jokumsen Managing Director of Newcodent Ltd in United Kingdom our order had been delivered to our hotel, we carried the two boxes with us to the school where we were setting up our dental clinic and here you see me Gerco unpacking our MDU7-24 V unit.
In my hand I am holding the water/air tank which fits into the back of the unit, this is a brilliant design. I then unpacked the remaining box containing the Newcodent Saliva suction unit and assembled it which took just a few minutes. I found a wooden box which I was going to use as my work station and then placed the MDU7 dental unit on this. As the electricity in Nepal is intermittent we used mains when it was available and a generator when it wasn’t.
Siggi donated the new Newcodent LED cold spot light which is free standing. The light can be adjusted down so it is directed into the patient’s mouth a remarkable light we have to say. Here you see my colleague and I, Dr Willem de Lint as we admire the purchases which were financed via The Lions Club of Katwijk back home in the Netherlands to whom we send our thanks
We were now ready to start work and it had only taken some 15 minutes to set up for our first patient. Here you can see the focus of the LED light into the mouth.
My local dental nurse had now arrived and we started the first days work with the new Newcodent MDU7. The units did exactly what Siggi had promised we worked flat out for the whole of our trip, and now look forward to our next venture to Nepal.
We would like to thank Siggi for his unique design and hope our recommendation for his products will help other dentist around the world in their daily work. This unit will also be a great asset as a stand by unit in any dental clinic.
The unit supplied by Newcodent products, the MDU7 and saliva suction unit did exactly as is
had been demonstrated and worked very well in Nepal.
It has been a pleasure to do business with Siggi and his wife Shantie and must say they are professional and reliable people who know the portable dental business inside out! We take pleasure in recommending Siggi, his team and the company’s products.
If we can be of any help in answering any questions regarding our work, feel free to drop us an email and we will reply by return.

Dear Siggi 12 October 2013
Newcodent Mobile Dental Unit Comes to Africa!!!!
Great News for those African who live in the Rural Areas where there are few hospitals not easily accessible and with shortage of medical equipment such as dental treatment.
With Newcodent Mobile Dental Units this is all history, ''The Dental Clinic is coming to all living in remote areas'' no bus fares, no long walks but will come to your village or local town.
No need of electricity supply in the area, no power cuts that one has to wait in agony due uncompleted dental work. These Units can also operate on 12 Volts batteries with an inverter, or a small fuel powered generator as the unit only use 380 W when operated, so that is all your dentist need to attach the Unit to.
They are easily carried in two separate light weight cases and a dental chair is carried as back pack. These dental units operate just the same as the usual dental facilities in major hospitals except this is mobile and can be carried any where at any time.
No more dental problems for those who cannot travel to the main available hospitals thanks to Newcodent Mobile Dental Units now available for Africa in both cities and deep in the rural villages to reach out to the communities.
The Newcodent concept were demonstrated to me, Missionary David Ws Mukasa and Princess Jane Mpologoma at a Charity BBQ in Hornchurch Essex England during 27th August 2013 and the Princess had a go in moving the two units around during the day.
We are now pleased to announce that Siggi Jokumsen the Managing Director of Newcodent Ltd have granted the distributorship for:

12th Feb 2013 - Testimonial - Borders Dental Care
After having practiced dentistry in Berwick upon Tweed for almost 20 years, well known local dentist, Dr Robert Rankin BMSc(hons) BDS, decided to establish a new bespoke private domiciliary dental service – Borders Dental Care. During his many years in general practice, Robert was used to dealing and listening to the needs of patients on an individual basis and believes that a domiciliary dental service is of enormous benefit to the whole community. Located primarily in the Scottish Borders and North Northumberland Robert treats a diverse range of patients in their own homes – the housebound and elderly, patients suffering from illness and simply those patients who would prefer to be treated in their home surroundings
"I purchased this equipment a year ago and have used it for all types of mobile dentistry. It is working very well and patients are extremely impressed with the efficiency and professional appearance of the equipment, as am I. The tools supplied by Newcodent, in terms of providing light to the treatment area of the mouth, are fantastic! The after care service provided by Siggi has been excellent, faultless in fact, and I would be more than happy to speak personally to any professional looking to purchase any Newcodent products as I also use the mini saliva suction unit.
