DentalEZ recently donated dental equipment and supplies to Project Chimps, a rescue organization dedicated to the lifetime sanctuary care of hundreds of captive chimpanzees.
The dental products and operatory and utility room equipment will be put to use in the organization’s new northern Georgia sanctuary, according to a press release, giving the dental facility all the components needed for the animals to have optimal dental care.
Donated products include NevinLabs steel cabinets, DentalEZ delivery units and operatory lights, StarDental handpieces, and RAMVAC vacuums and compressors. The DentalEZ team is working with Project Chimps to create the dental facility.
A recent transfer carried out by Project Chimps prompted the donation. Nine chimpanzees once used as research animals at the New Iberia Research Center in Louisiana were relocated to the new Project Chimps refuge. Workers with the non-profit organization transported the animals to their new home, where 200 chimps will eventually roam free.
The 236-acre sanctuary includes office buildings, a veterinary clinic, an upscale kitchen and four “villas” that can house 10-15 chimps and a larger group building that can house two groups of 10-15 chimps.
