3 Ways Becoming a Full Service Digital Lab Can Grow Your Business

Nov 10, 2015

From the smartphones permanently clasped in our hands to the hoverboards on everyone’s Christmas list this year, there’s no doubt that technology has changed the way we live. And when it comes to dentistry, the industry is making technological strides too. With digital dentistry becoming more mainstream, if your dental lab doesn’t offer digital dentistry services, you could be left in the dust. Becoming a full-service digital lab boasts significant benefits, but here are our three favorites:

1. Digital dentistry offers cost-effective technology.

Many labs postpone making the switch to digital dentistry thinking that the cost of new technology is too high. On the contrary, digital dentistry can provide your lab with beneficial technological upgrades in an economical way. While the initial cost of the technology may tout a considerable price tag, your lab will benefit from high return on investment.

2. Dentists and orthodontists are making the switch to digital dental technologies.

Maintaining positive relationships with dentists and orthodontists is important to the success of your dental lab. Considering CAD/CAM systems are becoming standard equipment in the practices of dentists and orthodontists alike, it’s important your lab stays ahead of the digital dentistry curve. With so many dentists and orthodontists making the switch from traditional dental methods to digital, becoming a full service digital lab is a superior investment.  

3. Younger dental professionals recognize the ROI on digital dentistry technologies.

There’s no doubt that the newest generation of dentists and orthodontists are influencing the state of dentistry as a whole. Dental professionals who are recent graduates recognize the significant return on investment digital dentistry technologies can garner. As a result, an increased amount of pro-digital, tech savvy dentists and orthodontists are entering the workforce and utilizing CAD/CAM systems.

"Sun Dental Labs has been producing SunCeram® zirconia crowns and bridges for my patients for some time which are more esthetic looking than the traditional zirconia crowns that appear chalky and unnatural. They are strong enough that they can be used not just in the anterior but the posterior area as well. Sun Ceram zirconia crowns are quality restorations at a competitive price."

– Joseph R. Craig, DDS

"I am starting to work in a new dental office with cases of SunClear® aligners and want to thank Dr. Torres because he has been very helpful to me. I always write him about any doubts, and he responds almost immediately and clarifies them. He helps me with case planning, gives suggestions and always considers my interests a priority in order to achieve the goal I want for each patient. Thanks to the help and excellent disposition of Dr. Torres and Sun Dental Labs I have been able to carry out my first cases successfully. "

– Nadyan M Vargas Barreto DDS

"I have been using SunClear® aligners for about 6 months now and am so impressed with the quality of the product and the readily available staff to answer any of my needs. The best part is their online portal that makes it so easy to treatment plan your cases for review and approve. As a provider of other competing clear aligner products for many years the prices have become a large problem and with the low price offered by SunClear®, we were able to lower our Ortho fees to accommodate so many more patients and change their smiles with the same ease and quality as the more expensive companies.
