About Us

http://authenticlab.com/images/aboutpic.jpgAuthentic Dental Laboratory, Inc. was founded in 1984 on a standard set of principles that a laboratory can be successful by building relationships through education, excelling in customer service and by providing a consistent product with every case. For over 30 years, we are committed to this and we continually grade ourselves through customer feedback and the willingness to make changes in our systems.

Our goal is to be dedicated to your practice by becoming your dental resource in providing you guidance and knowledge on the latest techniques, materials, case planning and procedures that are available today.
