Dental & Medical Equipment provides technical healthcare equipment support to the lower South Island, New Zealand
From Dentist to Engineer
Doug Moller, attended the University of Otago graduating as a dentist in 1980. During the time spent practicing as a dentist, Doug began training as a Clinical Engineering technician, setting up a dental engineering business initially as a hobby. This culminated into a fully-fledged business in 1997.
Involvement in dental engineering led to a number of contracts with District Health Boards and the University of Otago Dental School. The step towards autoclave servicing was a catalyst to increased involvement with medical equipment.
As healthcare practitioners awareness of Australian /New Zealand Standards increased so did the equipment testing side of the business.
Health reforms in the 1990's resulted in a large number of southern hospitals being set up as community health companies, no longer directly aligned with the District Health Boards. Many of these companies now choose to use Dental and Medical Equipment Ltd as their provider of medical technical support
