Donnell Dental Laboratory Renews DAMAS Certification
Posted on August 22, 2012
St. Louis, MO (August, 2012)—Donnell Dental Laboratory has successfully renewed its Dental Appliance Manufacturers Audit System (D.A.M.A.S.) certification. Donnell Dental Laboratory is the only dental laboratory in the St. Louis area to maintain the prestigious DAMAS certification, and one of only a small handful of laboratories throughout North America. A dental laboratory quality management system based on the FDA’s Good Manufacturing Practices, DAMAS certification is linked with higher quality restoratives, better service, and reduced risk to patient health and safety.
“At Donnell our goal is to help dentists provide a convenient and high-quality experience for patients. We do this by making sure our restoratives are delivered on time, and with reliable and predictable quality that meets verifiable standards. DAMAS makes a difference and helps us achieve these goals,” commented Bart Donnell, CDT and lab manager for Donnell Dental Laboratory.
“Quality, service and patient safety are some of the risks associated with the many dental laboratories that are offshoring, “Added Dr. Mark Murphy, lead faculty for clinical education at Dental Technologies Inc and adjunct faculty at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. “Donnell makes a strong commitment to dentists and patients by maintaining the DAMAS certification, using FDA Approved materials, and making all restoratives in the USA.”
The DAMAS certification is sanctioned by the National Association of Dental Laboratories in North America. Maintaining the DAMAS certification requires compliance with 3rd party audits.
