On-Site Dental Lab
West Augusta Dental Associates is unique in that we have our own dental lab inside our building. Dental labs make crowns, veneers, bridges, dentures, partial dentures, and night guards/splints. Most dental offices are required to send their work to an outside dental laboratory, often out of state. Having our own dental lab allows to make quick repairs to dentures and partials, as well as help customize and match the tooth color of dental work we provide for patients.
Mija Perry and Anita Gordon are both very talented ceramic technicians who have been with our office for over 30 years each! Having them work in our office allows us to help give our patients the ideal appearance and color for their crowns, bridges, and veneers. They are able to personally see the patients and help give them the smile they desire.
Lorie Zange, our removable technician, obtained her CDT from Gwinnett Technical College. She worked with us for several years and then took a brief hiatus to raise her children. She is delighted to be back with us in her field of expertise, and is happy to be a part of the team again! Lorie performs all aspects pertaining to removable appliances and dentures in our lab. Having Lorie on site allows her to work chairside with the dentists and patients. In most cases, she handles same day repairs and relines. Always the professional, she strives to make all her work look natural and repairs to be done right.
