The dental laboratory industry is at the threshold of expected expansion. It is predicted that the dental laboratory’s income will increase from 2014 to 2019. The growth of the US population is predicting an increase in demand for dentures. In addition, healthcare providers have begun to emphasize the value of dental care. More efficient laboratory techniques and increased demand for services mean lower manufacturing costs and higher profits in dental laboratories.
After carefully evaluating existing dental laboratory services, identify a profession with few suppliers and/or high service needs. If you are willing to receive special training, your laboratory is qualified for complex dental implants. You must demonstrate the ability to create special cosmetic dental products that contain the patient’s facial structure and texture. Finally, you can get approval for dental restoration work, including making fixed or removable full-mouth reconstituted products.
Buy quality cheap dental lab equipment and keep them well maintained so your lab can meet the demand for removable or fixed dental restorations. Common dental laboratory equipment includes dental microscopes, dental cutting lathe, denture injection systems, and dental waxing equipment. Dental laboratory lighting equipment, air purifiers and filtration systems create a comfortable working environment for your technicians.
Certified dental technology professionals enable your dental laboratory to deliver quality services.The National Board for Certification in Dental Laboratory Technology has established a nationally certified dental technician standard. To be considered for certification, dental technician candidates must have functional knowledge of English and must have the necessary experience and/or education. Dental technology majors include crown and bridge structures, ceramics, implants, orthodontics and partial or complete dentures.
Well-planned marketing methods can serve two groups of potential customers. Hire a medical sales professional, preferably with dental experience to promote your laboratory to serve regional dental and dental professional practice. At the same time, ask your sales staff to demonstrate the capabilities of your laboratory at the National Dental Trade Shows and Conferences.
