We are building a different kind of dental laboratory group. We are laser focused on quality, industry-leading technology and valued partnerships with our clients.

Our philosophy is to provide the highest quality products, to foster trusted relationships between technician and clinician, and deliver an exceptional service experience.

Using Savernake Laboratories means you are supported by a team of skilled and conscientious laboratory managers, technicians and operations specialists. Each of our UK laboratories is focussed on delivering the highest quality precision products, and leading technology, backed by unparalleled customer service and support.

Our technicians are tenured, talented individuals who take pride in what they do. They build relationships and work closely with you on a case-by-case basis to make sure we meet your expectations and those of your discerning patients.

Our laboratory managers are veterans of the industry. They have the hands-on skills, experience, and business acumen to support our exceptionally talented technicians and team members to ensure we deliver the high quality service and products you expect.

Our objective is to work with you as one team – adding value to your practice and delivering a seamless service to patients.

“I began working with SDLG several months ago after a Bupa lab I had previously used decided to take internal referrals from the practice they were attached to.

Whenever starting to work with a new lab, there is always an unknown of how the relationship between practitioner and technician is going to pan out, as well as the standard of the finished product. However, since working with Precision I have found the service to be outstanding and the team very accommodating. I have used the lab for both crown and bridgework as well as acrylic and chrome dentures. Whether I have sent scans digitally or taken impressions, the products I have received have been to a very high standard.

The manager and team are always on hand for any advice or questions regarding cases to try and get the best outcome for patients. Recently, I have collaborated with the lab on a large restorative case involving numerous crowns and chrome denture work with several discussions had back and forth to get the desired outcome. The results have been above and beyond, making my job as the dentist so much easier.

We have even had an in-house visit to our practice from the lab manager to go through new materials, importance of correct shade taking and how to improve the outcome using a digital workflow, giving us here at the practice a greater appreciation of the information a technician requires to deliver high quality lab work.

I could not recommend SDLG enough and look forward to continuing working alongside them to deliver high standards of dental care. “

“I have been working with PDS for nearly 25 years. It is an absolute pleasure to work with their team. They are friendly, accommodating and patient.”
