Modern Dental Laboratory offers a five year warranty on fixed products and a two year warranty on removable products.
We guarantee our restorations to be free of defects due to our materials or workmanship. Our appliances are guaranteed to fit the provided model.
We are committed to a strict protocol for infection control and have therefore followed the recommendations of the ADA Council on Scientific Affairs, the ADA Council on Dental Practice, and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The procedures used are termed “Universal Precautions”. Since not all patients with infectious diseases can be identified by medical history, physical examination, or readily available laboratory tests, the CDC has introduced the concept of universal precautions. This term refers to a method of infection control in which all human blood and certain human body fluids (saliva in dentistry) are treated as if known to be infectious for HIV, HBV, and other blood borne pathogens. Universal precautions mean that the same infection control procedures are used for all patients. The following information details the steps a laboratory must follow, The subsequent table shows the guidelines based on materials used.
Receiving area: A receiving area should be established separately from the production area. Countertops and work surfaces should be cleaned and then disinfected daily with an appropriate surface disinfectant used according to the manufacturer’s directions.
Incoming cases: All cases should be disinfected as they are received. Containers should be sterilized or disinfected after each use. Packing materials should be discarded to avoid cross contamination.
Disposal of waste materials Solid waste that is soaked or saturated with body fluids should be placed in sealed, sturdy, impervious bags. The bag should be disposed of following regulations established by local or state environmental agencies.
Production area: Persons working in the production area should wear a clean uniform or laboratory coat, a face mask, protective eyewear, and disposable gloves. Work surfaces and equipment should be kept free of debris and disinfected daily. Any instruments, attachments, and materials to be used with new prostheses or appliances should be maintained separately from those to be used with prostheses or appliances that have already been inserted in the mouth. Ragwheels can be washed and autoclaved after each case. Brushes and other equipment should be disinfected at least daily. A small amount of pumice should be dispensed in small disposable containers for individual use on each case. Any excess should be discarded. A liquid disinfectant (1:20 sodium hypochlorite solution) can serve as a mixing medium for pumice. Adding three parts green soap to the disinfectant solution will keep the pumice suspended.
Outgoing cases: Each case should be disinfected before it is returned to the dental office. Dentists should be informed about infection control procedures that are used.
