DENTAL LAB

DDS Refining works with dental laboratories from all over North America, big and small. We attend several trade shows as well as study groups throughout the year. In some cases we even speak on the refining process as it relates to the dental industry as a whole. DDS Refining feels that the relationship between the lab and the refiner is an important one, and one that is built largely on trust. Most refiners use the same techniques to smelt and assay your scrap. What sets one apart from another is truth in reporting accurate numbers in the assay. As the lab owner, you know your material better than anyone, so you should be able to determine if your assay is accurate. Just make sure you are getting a detailed settlement report.


We look forward to establishing a relationship with you.
