Do you do dentures?
I remember being asked that question over and over again by prospective dentist clients. My answer over and over again was “No, But I Know Someone……”
Looking back I’m sure that having a denture department would have been the answer to growing my business. Attracting dentists by providing dentures is a perfect way to acquire new accounts that could eventually send their crown and bridge work.
the Future of Dentures in America
We are in a very unique period in dental laboratory history. We have the latest machines and CAD/CAM technology to create everything from all ceramic bridges to implant parts but at the same time there is a need for over 61 million dentures to be made by 2020 (Journal of Dental Education, 2007). That amounts to over 4,000 dentures for every laboratory in the US.
While hundreds of thousands of dollars are spent on CAD/CAM and wax printers, only a few thousand dollars is needed to start a denture department.
