On-Site Laboratory

On-Site Laboratory

Since Dr. Yen does most of the laboratory work himself, he has built an ultra-modern laboratory that can accommodate most prosthodontic needs. It allows him to provide important services like denture relines and repairs while the patient waits rather than sending it out to a lab.

When labs are used, only the highest quality ones are utilized and Dr. Yen remains in constant communication with the technologist (who has been selected based on his or her additional training/expertise). The lab microscope is used whenever possible to examine the prosthesis before the prosthesis is delivered to the patient.

No work is accepted until the doctor is completely satisfied with it. Occasionally, this may mean a need to reschedule the delivery appointment, but Dr. Yen will not compromise on the quality of the restorations delivered to his patients. In addition, the patient’s esthetic requests are directly communicated to the lab technologist by photos, lip impressions and verbal communication. Where indicated, the lab technologist will even come to the office for direct visualization and discussion of the patient’s needs.
