D&S Dental Laboratory, Inc., proudly celebrates its 45th anniversary this October. Dick and Sally Pilsner founded the company as a “mom and pop” denture shop in October 1972.
From its modest beginnings, D&S has grown to become a full-service Certified Dental Laboratory with 100 employees, including six shareholders, in five locations. D&S remains one of the largest privately-owned laboratories in Wisconsin.
While the majority of its business comes from Wisconsin and northern Illinois, the company provides restorations to doctors in more than half the states in the country and continues to expand nationally.
D&S is recognized as an industry leader in the incorporation of technology in the production process, combining state-of-the-art technology and production techniques with an experienced staff of technicians, including one dozen Certified Dental Technicians.
In addition to its Waunakee location, D&S operates four satellite laboratories in Baraboo, Eau Claire, and Greenfield, Wisconsin, as well as Rockford, Illinois. Its Waunakee headquarters is DAMAS accredited, placing it among less than 1 percent of dental laboratories that follow the best quality-assurance processes in the business. In 2014, D&S Dental Laboratory received the Friends of Dentistry Award from the Wisconsin Dental Association for its ongoing contributions to the dental industry.
