St Agnes-based Dental Precision has become one of the first dental laboratories in the country to join the ‘British Bite Mark’ campaign.
Launched by the Dental Laboratories Association, the initiative offers patients the opportunity to find out where their appliances have been made and whether they comply with UK and EU regulations.
In recent months there have been a significant number of dentists looking to send their prescriptions to dental laboratories in the Far East to help reduce their overheads, rather than using the traditional route of dental laboratories based in the UK.
As a licensed ‘British Bite Mark’ dental laboratory, Dental Precision is recognised as meeting all the legal requirements to manufacture crowns, bridges, dentures and veneers in the UK and as such are able to carry the ‘British Bite Mark’ logo.
Dental Precision owner Martin Docking said: “I am delighted to have been accepted to use the British Bite Mark logo.
“It is essential that patients receiving custom made dental appliances manufactured from my dental laboratory can be confident that they are safe and compliant and this logo does exactly that without the patient having to do lengthy research or ask questions that they may feel uncomfortable asking when visiting the dentist.”
