On-Site Dental Lab
Our on-site certified dental laboratory is just one of the many examples of our dedication to our patients’ experience. With the doctors’ supervision, the dental laboratory contributes greatly to the treatment efficiency and perfection in the final result. To be certified, a dental laboratory must pass thorough inspections for cleanliness, infection control, and only use FDA-approved materials. Because of these rigorous quality demands and inspections, there are very few certified dental laboratories. Traditionally, all dental restorations are mailed to an offsite dental laboratory and returned by mail. What does this mean for you as the patient? This means that, in the typical dental office, the communication with the dental laboratory about specifics of fit and esthetics are limited to written instructions and telephone conversations, sometimes even outside of the United States. All dental restorations, such as crowns, bridges, and dentures are fabricated at our facility. This reduces the waiting time to finish your treatment and enjoy your new teeth, but more importantly, this ensures that you are getting the best quality dental service from our highly-trained and professional staff.
Diane and Earl Hughes, owners of Oak Tree Dental Lab, are highly experienced certified dental lab technicians that operate this full-service dental laboratory. Their talented staff creates beautiful crowns, veneers, bridges, and fixed and removable dentures right here within Worthington Dental Group.
Having a state of the art onsite dental lab saves wait times for your dental restorations and improves the level of dental care. Having your dental appliances crafted in-house allows for additional quality control by our dental specialists. High quality lab work is needed to ensure proper size, shape and color, for optimal functionality and appearance.
