Leeds based HQ Dental Laboratory is celebrating again after picking up two titles at the Laboratory Awards in London.

 

Last year HQ Dental won the best Crown and Bridge and best Orthodontic Laboratory, and at last Friday’s (Nov 18) ceremony at Kensington’s Royal Garden Hotel they were nominated in 9 of the 10 categories and awarded Team of the Year and Best Prosthetic Laboratory.

 

Managing director Richard Wainwright said:” This year saw a record number of entries to the Laboratory Awards, making it especially hard to emulate our success in 2015 so I’m incredibly proud that the work of our team and our expertise in prosthetics has once again been recognised by the industry.”

 

HQ Dental boasts some of the best dental technicians in the UK and has earned a strong reputation in the fields of implantology, crown and bridge and prosthetics through continuous investment in training courses and technology.  We are about to go Digital with a mouth scanner which will mean no more impressions, the worst part of having a crown!

As well as the full service Laboratory, the Tong Road, Armley, Headquarters also has a private dental practice on site.

Are you looking for excepti onally good nhs lab work?

...due to a change of contract with one of the large corporates we now have some limited NHS capacity in all departements.

...unlike some labs (which use trainees for NHS work) our skilled team of senior technicians is geared up to producing some of the highest quality NHS work available in the country - even our NHS crown and bridge work is CAD CAM designed for accuracy.

All work is triple checked and our prices are very competitive.
