For your information we want you to know that our office just about exclusively uses Kuwata Pan Dent as our Dental Laboratory that fabricates your porcelain crowns (better known as caps), veneers, onlays (partial porcelain covers), and bridges that are permanently fixed to your teeth.
The Kuwata Lab (KPD) was established over
years ago 42 by Masahiro Kuwata from Japan. He started his lab as if
it were a dental school for technicians. The students had to learn
and study for 4 years. He started the first lab in Tokyo, the second
in Los Angeles, and the third in New Jersey. It is not a requirement
for lab technicians to go to school for that trade, but anyone who
works for KPD must go through the 4-year rigorous training. KPD’s
quality is the best I’ve seen, I’ve seen many other labs. I have
been using KPD for over 30 years. They graciously sponsor quarterly
continuing education at their state of the art facility in Morris
Plains, NJ for dentists and their staff. KPD adheres to all OSHA
health and safety requirements and uses only FDA approved materials.
KPD is the first and only dental laboratory in the
USA to have ISO 9001 standard certification renewal from ISO 9001:2008 to the newly revised standard, ISO 9001:2015. That certificate is important because it is the worlds most widely recognized quality management standard and demonstrates tangible proof that a lab is willing and able to effectively and continuously improve their products and services.
We want the highest quality that can be achieved for our patients. The highest quality that not only Dr. G and his staff can provide, but also the dental labs that we work with can provide.
