Dentist In A Box® is an Australian-owned company based in Melbourne.
Dental injury is often managed by well-meaning but dentally inexperienced staff relying on first aid kits containing no materials nor relevant instructions for managing this type of injury. Since 1996 when Dentist In A Box® became available there has been increasing interest by the media about the frequency of dental injury and the improved first aid care offered by Dentist In A Box® has educated the public about this distressing and disfiguring injury.
Dr. John I. Banky an Australian dentist with more than 30 years clinical experience developed the Dentist In A Box® product range. He remains committed to its long-term improvement.
Dentist In A Box® kits are listed with Therapeutic Goods Administration (Canberra) as medical devices. Dentist In A Box® products are listed in Australian Maritime Safety Authority under Marine Orders Part 10.
Since product launch in July 1996 the Dentist In A Box® range has been in continuous use by The Australian Defence Forces, mining and exploration companies, commercial shipping fleets, Australian Football League Medical Officers and an increasing number of schools and sporting teams at varying levels within Australia and overseas.
According to Sonia Georgiades (Executive Officer, Oral Health Committee, Australian Dental Association - Victoria) "Dr. Banky's initiatives with Dentist In A Box have greatly contributed to improved first-line management of dental trauma. We appreciate the work Dentist In A Box has done and continues to do in this area".
