“Our onsite laboratory is just another part of our dedication to giving you the very best care and service.”
— Dr Michael Howard
Our ceramic and acrylic technical support staff are an integral part of our dental implant team, and our onsite laboratory is just another part of our commitment to your care.
Unlike some surgeries who have your restorations made off-site, or even overseas, at Brisbane Dental Implants Group we have them made in house by our specialist technicians, Greg Mann and Ian Eberhardt.
While outsourcing is seen as convenient and less costly by some practices, the considerable downside to this is that it increases the likelihood of errors, and means any changes have to be sent away again, taking even more time.
Instead, our onsite technicians play an extremely important role in your treatment, from planning, right through to the final provision of your implant prosthetics.
Because you will be involved in the process, it allows us to provide you with a far more customised and personalised reconstruction, ensuring your comfort as well as the longevity of your implant. It also means we can provide exceptional quality control for you.
Between them Greg and Ian have over 60 years experience in their highly specialised areas of expertise, so you can be assured that you are in the hands of some of the very best in their fields.
If you have any questions about our onsite laboratory facilities, or if you would like to book an appointment, please get in contact with us today.
