Welcome to the Dental Laboratory

Welcome to the Dental Laboratory
Welcome to the Dental Laboratory

We are proud to be one of the only practices in the UK to have an on-site dental laboratory, run by talented dental technician Richard O’Brien, who specialises in cosmetic dental work.  

Having an on-site laboratory means our lab technicians can work even closer with our patients, eliminate any problems quicker, and help support patients from start to finish alongside our dentists.  

Richard qualified in 1993 and continued his studies, receiving his Master’s Degree in Dental Technology in Cologne in 2000, qualifying best in his year. He now works as a Master Lab Technician at RichArt Dental Laboratory located inside Bow Lane Dental surgery.

Richards work includes hand-finished crowns, veneers and more…
Work created by Richard in the Dental Laboratory

The laboratory is located in the practice and features a wide range of state-of-the-art machinery to create everything from veneers and crowns to bridges and splints.

A great thing about having the on-site lab here is that our patients can meet Richard in person and discuss changes, colours, fittings and more without having to wait for the lab work to return from an outside company.

‘When patients visit the lab and see the work, they start to smile more. I notice that you can see in their eyes when they look in the mirror how happy they are with the results’. – Richard O’Brien.
