Is It Time to Switch Dental Labs?

Have you been less than satisfied with the quality of the veneers, dental implants, dentures, porcelain crowns, or other restorations coming from your preferred dental lab? You don’t need to settle for imperfect work. When you work with a subpar dental lab, complaints may roll in, patients can be lost, and it will all fall on you, even though the root of the problem is a lab that isn’t doing right by you. It’s time to consider whether you need to switch dental labs.

You Can’t Deliver Your Best Work

Maybe you feel like you’re off, your work has lost its edge, or there are other dentists more innovative than you. You can’t be the best at your work when the products you receive from the dental lab aren’t the best. You need quality work in your hands that is flawlessly customized for your unique patients – and that only comes from a solid, reliable dental lab.

You Are Unhappy with the Dental Lab’s Materials

There are different types of porcelain, but you know what you want when it comes to the creation of veneers, dental bridges, and the like in your practice. You want quality, and there is no reason to settle for less. Your preferences and those of your lab need to gel seamlessly. It is your right to ask and learn about the materials your dental lab uses for their creations, but a DSO can do this for you:

  • Proof of authenticity
  • ADA-approved materials
  • Genuine manufacturer parts and hardware
  • Restoration formulations at reasonable prices

The Lab Rates Are Confusing

High dental lab prices don’t necessarily ensure the best work. Low rates almost guarantee the work won’t be great. A DSO uncovers legitimate dental labs and helps you avoid deals that are too good to be true. Imitation manufacturer parts are a reality, and the rates that accompany orders for certain types of dental restorations or cosmetic dentistry may have you wanting to switch dental labs. Rightly so.

Time Is of the Essence

Some dental labs take their sweet time in delivering work. Others produce dental materials so quickly it seems like a scam. You know timing is important – your patients want their procedures done quickly and so do you, but not at the expense of quality work. Reliable labs with reasonable rates should be the norm. Your reputation relies on switch to the right dental lab.

You Never Fully Vetted the Lab

You don’t have time to do a full vetting on every dental lab to ensure they check off all your boxes. A DSO, however, does have time. Dental service organizations prioritize this part of the dental business., conducting site visits and interviews, confirming which labs are authorized, operating at the highest level, and delivering the best-quality materials and service.
