Who we are

We are a prosthectics dental laboratory based in Warrington, Cheshire. Active dental laboratory has been established for four years. The dental laboratory was opened by Colin Wilson who as a talented prosthetics dental technician, recoginised a need for a laboratory that can provide consistent high quality dental devices.

We are an independent family run business believing in producing only the best high quality products, and providing a professional friendly service. Our technicians regularly attend continuing education courses to improve and to keep our skills up to date.

We will be pleased to offer advice on all your dental prosthetic device requirements. Our laboratory is located at a convenient out of town area, ensuring easy access and easy parking.

Whilst we produce a wide range of bespoke products, all of which carry a 12 month guarantee, we are happy to repair prosthetic devices which may not have been produced by our laboratory as a service to the public.
