We recently wrote for the dental publication Remin on a wild story involving illegal dental laboratories. We used the story as a way to communicate to dentists the importance of looking into the practices of the dental labs they rely on.
“In a 2009 American Dental Association member survey, nearly 65% of dentists 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 U.S. require either certification or continuing education,” the Dental Tribune reported. Given how stringently dental offices are run, it’s remarkable that dental laboratories have flown under the radar for so long.
Check out the story here – and don’t be too surprised by what you find!
