Consistent Restorations Since 1923

United Dental Labs has served clinicians for nearly 100 years with a committed team and state-of-the-art facility. We grow with the industry to ensure that every case we fulfill meets high standards for esthetics, durability, fit, and function. We invest in our team and lab facility every year, so you can be sure that you are partnering with dental laboratory experts. At United Dental Labs, we want to make partnering with our team an easy choice. Our clinicians are confident in every restoration they receive from our laboratory because of the numerous certifications and memberships we have that give unbreakable value to our team and our products.

Certified Dental Laboratory

The United facility is a Certified Dental Laboratory, which means our team follows stringent infection control and case management standards. This certification assures that our lab meets specific standards regarding quality assurance, safety, and business manufacturing practices. Becoming a CDL was our choice as a lab, and through dedication and constant investment in our facility, we are proud to represent the top tier of dental laboratories throughout the nation. 

Ohio Dental Association

United is partnered with around 75% of fellow Ohio-based dental laboratories through the ODA. This group of laboratories helps advance and support our lab in our mission to provide consistent restorations to our clients. Through our membership in the ODA, we gain access to valuable information that helps our lab stay at the forefront of the industry in terms of trends and digital advancements. 

Made in the USA

United Dental Labs utilizes the latest digital dentistry advancements to craft our restorations, which helps us keep production entirely in our Tallmadge-based facility. By never outsourcing overseas, we can ensure that every restoration we provide meets our high standards and never puts you or your patient at risk.
