Company - Why Vitalab

Why Vitalab

Vitalab Dental Laboratory does not outsource to foreign laboratories.
Henning Visser, owner of Vitalab Dental Laboratory, is proud that 100% of the restorative work is produced in the United States of America and all restorative work is made at his laboratory in Irvine, California.

Superior Communication

E-mail communication between team members is a primary ingredient for superior quality restorations. An experienced technician will always be able to consult telephonically or, when possible, in person. When words are not enough we make use of photography; this is another great communication tool in our arsenal.
