In 2009, American Dental Association surveyed nearly 65 percent of dentists and they responded that they believe dental technicians and laboratories are regulated in their state. This is NOT THE CASE. In fact, only four states in the United States require either certification or continuing education. (National Association of Dental Laboratories ) In Illinois, dental labs are not required to register. The close relationship between our doctors and our American based labs ensure that we have more control over the products we use on our patients. This is highly important to us.
Many labs in foreign countries such as China, Mexico, and the Philippines are vying for business with American dentists. In Elmhurst, IL, Kopp Dental lab work provides the best care because it comes from nearby American based labs. We have established a close, long-term relationship with our labs.
We also have an on-site lab that we work closely with on many anterior and cosmetic cases. Our removable lab gives us the ability to offer emergency services and repairs to our patients at an affordable cost. You can count on your Chicago area family & cosmetic dentists at Kopp Dental to only use American-made lab work including crowns and porcelain veneers in all of our dental care.
