Which dental mount to use to practice at home?

For dental students practicing for licensing and board exams at home, setting up your model is an easy way to extend your practicing.  We have two options for the mounts at home and below we will go through the differences

Table Mount for Dental Manikin
Table/Chair Mount for Dental Manikin

Meant for use at home or flat workstation Meant for use if you have access to a dental chair as well

What is the difference?

The CBM-3 Mount is designed for use on a table/bench only while the CBM-3A Mount is meant to be used on a Table or a Dental Chair.  

If you have access to a dental chair that you will be practicing on, the CBM-3A is the mount for you.

The Table/Chair mount features the same ball joint system to simulate movement of the neck, however because of the placement the head can not go below parallel to the table.

More Room to Work

The CBM-3 mount places the model 4" further away from the table allowing you with 4 additional inches of elbow and room to work.  This can be helpful if you are positioned aside the table and trying to gain access to the mouth.

Increased Height

The CBM-3A mount places the model 5" higher than the table mount, making it a great option for taller individuals, those with a height adjustable stool or working off of a lower table.

Every situation will be different and require some adjustment but picking and setting up a mount for practice at home should not be complicated.
