Dental labs are smiling.

AN Ingleby Barwick dental laboratory has become one of the first in the country to join the 'British Bite Mark' campaign.

Barwick Dental Services, along with Priory Chromes & Prosthetic Studio in Marske have backed the initiative aimed at offering NHS and private patients the opportunity to find out where their appliances have been made and whether they comply with UK and EU regulations.

In recent months there have been a significant number of dentists looking to send their prescriptions to dental laboratories in the Far East to help reduce their overheads, rather than using the traditional route of dental laboratories based in the UK.

Owners Craig Robinson of Barwick Dental Services and Simon Mustard of Priory Chromes said: "It is essential that patients receiving custom made dental appliances manufactured from our dental laboratories can be confident that they are safe and compliant and this logo does exactly that without the patient having to do lengthy research or ask questions that they may feel uncomfortable about."
