Our History


Our company has a long history of service to dental and medical specialists around the world. Founded in 1957, by William Gray Boyd in St. Petersburg, Florida, Boyd began operations as a custom residential furniture company. At that time, we manufactured a contoured "lounge" style chair whose shape inspired our logo.

Mr. Boyd had many customers that were both dentists and doctors that desired equipment that would enable them to practice from a seated position. Challenged with this task, Mr. Boyd, was one of the pioneers of "sit-down" dentistry.

Once the concept became the preferred technique, Boyd Industries elected to further refine and specialize our products to cater to orthodontists, oral surgeons, pedodontists and select medical specialists.

Over the years, we remain focused upon the personalized needs of our customers. Just as our customers have received specialized training to practice their specialty, Boyd has specifically designed equipment to meet the rigors of a busy specialty practice.

Today, Boyd is the market leader in dental specialty equipment. Our product line includes exam/treatment chairs, surgical tables, doctor/assistant seating, lighting, custom cabinetry, delivery systems and gaming consoles.

Our commitment to providing the highest quality equipment and customer service has spanned over five decades. We truly value our customers input in product design and company improvement.

Thank you for your interest in Boyd equipment. We look forward to helping you create a work environment that is not only attractive but functional.
