Protea Dental Studio Earns DAMAS Certification

Posted on April 15, 2014

Protea Dental Studio President Leon Hermanides, CDT, is proud to announce that Protea earned its DAMAS certification on April 1, 2014. This marks the conclusion of a years long process to ensure the high-end esthetics dental laboratory meets one of the strictest voluntary quality assurance standards in the dental industry.

“The certification is important because I believe in competency standards and their importance in delivering the highest quality product for our customers and their patients,” says Hermanides.

DAMAS requirements are based upon the sound quality system management principles specified in ISO, but are written specifically for the dental laboratory setting. The standards required by DAMAS closely mirror the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Quality System/Good Manufacturing Practice (QS/GMP) specifications, which are required of all dental laboratories conducting business in the United States.
