It's long been said that good things come in small packages, and the saying holds true for the in-house laboratory at the Center for Dental Arts in Columbus, Ohio. Just 144 square feet, the two-person laboratory fabricates top-notch restorations for the high-end dental practice operated by Dr. Jeffrey Angart.
In 2004, Dr. Angart transformed a 3,200-sq-ft facility into a sophisticated dental office with the help of Dental Arte. Since Angart knew he ultimately wanted an in-house laboratory, he included one in the plans, furnishing it with granite-topped benches and countertops, and separating it from the office with a large curved wall made of maple and textured glass panels.
The lab remained unused until 2007 when Chad Funk came aboard as the in-house technician. "We're proud of our little laboratory. It's small, but provides a great work atmosphere. Even though we have limited space, we take pride in our work environment and it makes for a better day and a better product," says Funk, Manager.
