Carlisle dental lab gets its teeth into new campaign

A dental laboratory in Carlisle has become one of the first in Britain to join a new industry campaign.

Devonshire House lab, in Spencer Street, has signed up for the ‘British Bite Mark’ drive.

This aims to reassure people getting dental fittings that the products have been made to UK and EU standards. The campaign covers appliances like crowns, veneers, implants and dentures.

It has come about because many dentists are now using labs in the Far East for their prescriptions to cut costs. However, there are concerns because the goods are not produced by registered dental technicians and British regulators do not get a chance to inspect the laboratories, as they do in the UK.

Devonshire House owner Paul Walkington said: “I am delighted to have been accepted to use the British Bite Mark logo.

“It is essential that patients receiving custom made dental appliances manufactured from my dental laboratory can be confident that they are safe and compliant.

“This logo does exactly that without the patient having to do lengthy research or ask questions that they may feel uncomfortable about when visiting the dentist.”
