Dental lab design for both national dental laboratories and individual private practices must achieve an optimal balance between operational objectives, clinical functions, technology integration, and flexible, ergonomic design. Dental laboratories that manufacture dental products such as crowns, bridges, and dentures require ultra-clean, controlled environments where provisions are made to reduce particulate pollutants and control other environmental conditions such as temperature, humidity, and dust. Lab facilities in general dental practices also require environmental controls, special lighting, and sterile casework for fabricating and molding dental prosthetics, mouthguards, and ceramics. At Lab Furniture and Fume Hoods, we design dental labs that meet regulatory requirements and manage risks to ensure the safe production and distribution of dental products.
As a dental laboratory design consultant company, we have an in-depth understanding of the compliance requirements, healthcare standards, and best practices to design a sterile, clean, and safe dental lab. Our open and modular designs are adaptable and scalable to advances in dental technology and instrumentation, changing workloads, and operational efficiency objectives. Whether you are designing a new lab or remodeling an existing one, Lab Furniture and Fume Hoods can help you design and furnish a flexible, safe, smart, and sustainable dental lab with both short-term needs and long-term goals in mind.
The following are some of our basic objectives for dental lab design:
- Flexible design that supports current and future needs and technologies
- Provide sufficient circulation space to optimize accessibility and safety
- Modular or flexible casework and furnishing to allow labs to scale up or down
- Protect the safety and health of the occupants
- Extensive environmental controls, such as humidity, dust, temperature, and airflow
- Surfaces, furniture, and casework that provide sterile environments
