E51: Why Choosing The Right Lab Is Vital For Your House Call Practice

In this episode, I want to delve into the topic of choosing the right lab for your House-Call Dental Practice. I've found that selecting the right lab is crucial for ensuring a positive experience for my patient's long-term care and overall wellness. I’ve taken some time to break down an outline to highlight some key factors to consider when choosing a lab for your future or current practice.

1. Procedures Offered: It's essential to align the procedures you offer with the expertise of the lab. Whether it's fixed, removable, ortho, or aesthetic procedures, finding a lab that specializes in the type of work you do is incredibly important.

2. Quality: Opting for a high-quality dental lab is paramount. The fit, look, and patient satisfaction with the prosthetics are directly influenced by the lab's quality. This is especially crucial for house-call dentists to avoid repeated adjustments and breaks, which can waste time and money.

3. Proximity: Consider the distance of the lab from your practice. Having a lab nearby can facilitate faster turnaround times, safe delivery, and the ability to discuss cases with the lab technician in person.

4. Workflow: Whether you choose a digital or analog workflow depends on the practicality of your house call practice and the procedures your patients demand. This decision will ultimately play a role in choosing a lab that aligns with your workflow preferences.

These factors have been instrumental in my practice, and I hope they provide valuable insights for your lab selection process as well!
