    UK dental laboratories have relatively low staff numbers, due to the smart application of technology and processes. Innovation has been key to their success.

    The UK has been at the forefront of leading edge dentistry for over a century. The focus is on innovative products and materials that deliver better results for patients for longer. There are 21,000 practising dentists in the UK today compared to 16,000 in the early 1990s, according to the General Dental Practitioners Association. Science has expanded the horizons of dentistry, making it more like cosmetic surgery than basic healthcare, and more challenging to those in the profession.

    Tremendous advances have been made in the dental sector in recent years. Non-invasive treatments, digital dentistry and advances in materials are just one side of this progress, as leaders in dental practice also transform their surgeries into more relaxing environments. Today, a visit to the dentist is a relatively painless affair due to advances in non-invasive methods. Treatment with ozone and photoactive disinfection and digital dentistry makes crown and fitting of new teeth simpler. Stem cell technology, is exploring the possibility of growing new teeth to replace those lost through decay or accident.

    Scientists at the University of Leeds are investigating novel aesthetic dental restorative materials, with work into mica-based dental glass ceramics, which are particularly suitable for chairside processing. Dentistry schools at the University of Leeds and the University of Sheffield are active in the next generation of glass ceramics with high strength and fracture toughness that can bond to enamel, dentine and bone. Technology developments impacting upon the dental market include new bioceramics, improved alloys, fillers and cements, composites, regenerative materials, bone substitutes and drug eluting meshes.

    The UK Dental Appliances Manufacturer Audit Scheme (DAMAS) plays an important role in supporting the manufacture of dentistry related devices. The DAMAS scheme improves efficiency, reduces waste, cuts remake levels and saves times, this in turn enables cost savings to be passed onto customers.


    The UKs dental industry has a highly trained, highly skilled workforce. UK dental laboratories are well regarded, particularly by the private sector, with best performing labs working on implants.
