We started as a family business in California and now that we’ve grown, we still have the same values that keep dentists coming back to our lab year after year.

President of California Dental Arts

California Dental Arts has earned the trust of thousands of dentists by treating each one like our only client. We back up our superior service with a keen attention to detail, expert craftsmanship and top-of-the-line solutions from our Certified Dental Technicians (CDTs), many with advanced credentials. In fact, we have the most CDTs of any Bay Area dental lab.

Experienced in all disciplines of dental technology, we’re always working to create the best possible result for you and your patients, so you can take your business where you want it to go.
