Do you know where your dental laboratory work is being done? This is an important question that often gets overlooked. There's a growing trend to offshore dental laboratory work. But what does that mean for you and your patients? The quality, consistency, and safety of the materials can be compromised. In this blog, we’ll unveil the realities of offshoring in the dental industry and why partnering with PRO-Craft Dental Laboratory, which proudly keeps all services in-house and in the country, is a significant advantage for dental professionals.

The Offshoring Trend: A Complex Web

There’s a business model that's gaining traction among big dental labs, where laboratories will outsource different stages of the dental restoration process to various locations. This involves sending digital scanning to one place, the digital design to another, and having the crown milled at yet another location. Finally, they’ll gather all of these components, assemble them in their laboratory, and sell them to you.

This fragmented approach means that instead of dealing with one reliable laboratory, you end up entangled with multiple labs trying to solve consistency issues.

PRO-Craft’s Commitment to In-Country Excellence

At PRO-Craft Dental Laboratory, our approach is starkly different. We’re proud to say that we’ve never engaged in offshoring, and we never will. Everything is done right here in this country.
