Private & NHS Clients

RD laboratory is an established professional dental laboratory with over 25 years experience. Partners Shaun Forker (prosthetics and implants) and Alan Nicol ( crown and bridge) originally started the Royal Dental Laboratory in 1989 and after a period of steady growth the business was incorporated in 2002 becoming R D Laboratory Ltd. In 2006 we relocated to a newly refurbished 2000 square foot laboratory.

Since then we have continued to expand our services and staff training is ongoing to ensure practices are both current and of a high standard. All our technicians are registered with the GDC and at present we have three apprentices working towards their HNC in dental technology.

As a full service laboratory we can cater for every aspect of dental practice work from NHS repairs and additions to cosmetic crown and bridge and large implant restorations.
