Rick Peebles has come a long way since he began his career as a one-man removables lab in a prosthodontist's office more than three decades ago. His laboratory, Peebles Prosthetics Inc., has grown into a 65-person, full-service operation and, in 2013, moved into a two-story, 19,500-sq-ft, state-of-the-art facility in Lakewood, CO.
Furniture manufacturers and distributors offer a wealth of design and renovation strategies. Here, seven companies share how they helped their laboratory customers realize their vision, whether it was an intimate 600-sq-ft training laboratory or a bustling 83,000-sq-ft operation.
Ten years ago, metal-based units made up 83% of laboratory casework. Since then, metal-free restorations have grown in popularity and—for the first time in 2015—metal-free units eclipsed metal-based workloads, 60% vs. 40%, respectively.
