Challenge

In a dental clinic where pristine lighting is essential for intricate procedures, nothing but the best will do. Dental Health Associates wanted to improve its lighting while driving energy savings. They had many 2x2 fixtures with high-energy biax lamps, as well as 2x4 fixtures with 2-3 T8 lamps and many 2x4 fixtures with 3 high-output T5 lamps. EPL would need to meet or beat the existing brightness of the clinic’s lighting while delivering promised savings on energy costs.

Solution

EPL aimed to deliver the needed brightness so that dentists could perform delicate patient procedures including color matching and very detailed cosmetic dental work. Our solution involved LED retrofit kits in 2x2 and 2x4 fixtures wherever possible. This helped Dental Health Associates accomplish energy savings goals without completely replacing fixtures in many cases. Where we were unable to use retrofit kits, we installed new, matching LED fixtures. This achieved the client’s goal of having one overall aesthetic that modernized and improved the look of the clinic. Where aesthetics were of special concern, we used LED T8 and LED T5 tubes while being energy efficient. We also replaced all incandescent screw-in lamps with LED screw in lamps for additional savings.
