Precision Craft Spreads Its Wings in New Multi-million Dollar Facility

  • In the 7,000-sq.-ft. production area, color-corrected lights from Sweden are suspended 30" above the benches so they cast a wider, less harsh light without shadows; since moving in, technicians are reporting fewer headaches. Half-glass dividers between departments help contain dust but keep things open and airy while maximizing communication.

  • In April, Precision Craft Dental Laboratory moved into a new, 14,000-sq.-ft. facility in Smithfield, RI, that includes a training center for dentists and technicians and a shade-taking room with color-corrected lighting.

  • The lab’s education center includes a 50-person lecture room (shown above), an adjacent in-house operatory for live-patient courses (visible through the glass wall, top right) and a technician training room.
