State of the Art Laboratory

Responding to the needs of the dental profession, Thayer Dental Laboratory built a new, full-service facility in 1999. The 12,000 square foot laboratory provides a spacious, comfortable and completely ergonomic work environment for its employees who, on average, have been with the company for over 15 years.


The production area of the laboratory is outfitted with the most modern, state of the art, dental benches and equipment from KaVo Corporation. Every phase of operations, from human resources to technical procedures was researched and designed to optimize working conditions, maximize efficiency and assure the continued stringent quality standards that the dental profession has come to expect for nearly 40 years.

The remainder of the facility incorporates many unique aspects that are not found in the average dental laboratory. These include an infection control room, a lecture room for clinical programs geared to the practitioner and the members of the dental health care team, an operatory for doctor prescribed shading and custom staining, and a training room for continuing technician education programs that all Thayer Dental Laboratory personnel attend. This extra investment in non-productive areas of the laboratory helps to support the practicing dentist in meeting the constantly evolving challenges of dentistry.
