When will I receive my case?

At DDS Lab, we understand that case turnaround times drive patient scheduling in your practice. To better assist you, we have developed a scheduling calendar that highlights suggested scheduling dates.

These dates are an estimate to help you plan, they are not guaranteed. Please refer to individual case descriptions for additional information on in-lab working days.

Please note our case turnaround times are effective once all applicable case materials have arrived at DDS Lab:

  • Combination cases including multiple product configurations require full working time for each product component selected for the case.
  • Specialty cases such as Cercon or dental implants may require additional in-lab working time than those listed.
  • All rush cases must be pre-scheduled by calling us at 1-877-337-7800 before the case is shipped. Rush case turnaround time depends on the time of day the case is received at DDS Lab. An additional fee will be added to all rush cases.

Please contact us at 1-877-337-7800 for specific questions related to your case.

“Most labs charge different amounts for crowns depending on how much metal is used. I like the fact that DDS Lab provides me with flat-rate pricing for Hi-Noble crowns.They take the guessing out of how much it will cost and I can keep better control over my budget.”
