The Mora System was designed for healthcare and brings these characteristics to the operatory:

  • To-the-floor and wall-hung options give the choice of what fits each practice best. Mix and match the two options in different spaces while keeping the same cohesive look.

The most important feature and primary function of cabinetry is storage. One example of this is Belmont’s Flex Series, which is designed with an efficient, well-organized treatment room in mind. The cabinet enables dentists and assistants to easily access supplies and equipment without having to leave the dental stool. The series comes in three designs:

Flex Series Rear Cabinet

This cabinet rests behind the dental chair and enables a dentist and dental team to work cooperatively and ergonomically. It features a mid-shelf section option with six cubbies, a four-way sliding countertop (left-right/in-out) and a mobile cart option that rests underneath the counter and provides multiple, easily accessible drawers.
