Partnership is Key

Based on our experience here at Wiand Dental Lab, it is clear that success in removable dental prosthetics can be easily achieved through proactive and open communication between the dental lab and the doctor. In complex implant cases, we find that a team approach involving the dental lab, restorative doctor, and the surgeon before the work begins always breeds the best results. For this reason, we aim to have a true partnership with all of our doctors from the start in order to provide patients with an optimal outcome. This requires that we thoroughly examine incoming impressions for accuracy that we receive from our doctors.  This is the difference between our lab and our competitors.  We take the time up front to make sure the records taken to start a case are going to lead to success for our doctors.  Our work is a reflection of the impression provided which is the foundation of any removable case.  Taking the time on the front end of the case results in predictable consistent outcomes upon final delivery.  Additionally, we strive to be proactive in our customer service approach over communicating to avoid potential challenges.  Success in removable is a team effort and it is the little things that can make a big difference to the end result for the patient!

Our Philosophy

Our goal is to have our expertise in removable dental prosthetics be a resource to you in order to provide your patients with the best possible restorative options and outcome. At Wiand, we strive to help make every one of our doctors successful in the area of removable dental prosthetics in terms of both patient satisfaction and profitability. We achieve this by providing the most predictable and accurate products possible as well as by taking a proactive approach in terms of customer service. With attention to the smallest detail, everything we do is deliberate and well thought out in an effort to make your removable cases go seamlessly saving you time, money and frustration. Every case is treated as a custom piece of art made with what we have found to be the best materials and equipment available. There are many internal measures that we take to ensure precise, predictable and consistently accurate dental prosthetics that allow us to rise above the competition and reduce you chair time, the doctor’s greatest expense. This leaves our doctors more time to see more patients, grow your practice or just have more free time!

We have an open door policy, stop by anytime to see our dental lab in action or to discuss your next case! You will learn a lot by observing the systems and practices in our denture lab since every detail is critical.

Continuing Education Facility

Wiand Dental Lab Training RoomOur location is also equipped with a Continuing Education room that seats up to 25 people comfortably.

If you have a subject you need assistance with and would like us to explore, please contact Beth Wiand or call 480.446.7063.

Our History

From conventional dentures to the most complex implant supported over-dentures, Wiand Dental Lab produces the most precise dental prosthetics for all your removable needs. Tom Wiand, CDT,  the son of a general dentist, started Wiand Dental Lab in 1992. He attended the McCarrie School of Health Sciences and Technology in Philadelphia, PA. With training in all areas of dental laboratory technology, he found removable prosthetics to be the most challenging due to the uniqueness of each case and made it his focus. Tom worked for several dental labs before venturing out on his own to establish Wiand Dental Lab, which has become the valley’s premier removable prosthetic dental lab specializing in implant and attachment dentistry. Tom is actively involved in every aspect of the lab on a daily basis. We employ a staff of 20, and are a family owned, quality driven lab that uses only FDA approved materials and creates custom dental prosthetics on our premises. As our doctors are professionals, we too present ourselves in a professional manner. We are a dental laboratory you will be proud to be associated with. We care about what we do because it makes a difference in the lives of your patients.

What Our Doctors Say

“As a periodontist, I had long been aware that Wiand Dental Lab was the high-end facility for fabricating removable dental prostheses in the Valley. When I began to offer the “All-on-4” treatment option in my office, Wiand was the obvious choice to provide the best possible result for my patients. Their expertise, professionalism and attention to detail are second to none and their experience and customization have provided excellent results, without exception, for each and every patient we have treated together. Wiand’s knowledgeable employees provide personalized service at each step of the treatment process and their communication protocol is impeccable. The beneficiary is the patient, who gets a predictable, same-day conversion leaving the office with a fixed, full arch implant-supported prosthesis. Not only does Wiand Dental Laboratory exceed my expectations with “All-on-4” cases, but they also provide expert advice concerning removable dental prostheses. I could not recomment them more highly.”
Dr. Leslie I. Davis
“Many years ago I was ready to give up on removable. I just thought I wasn’t any good at it because I was not getting the results I wanted for my patients. A trusted colleague of mine referred me to Wiand. What I got back was high quality and precision fit consistently for my patients. My confidence in doing removable cases was restored and I have been doing removable cases successfully ever since. If you want to be successful in removable, Wiand is your lab!”
Dr. Karl Bohman
“I have been working with Tom Wiand and the lab for many years now. I have come to realize how beneficial Tom can be when planning complex cases. He has taught me so much that I didn’t even know was possible. I had a great deal of difficulty with my first hybrid case that was in progress with another lab. So much so, that I didn’t ever want to do another. When one came up and it was the best treatment available for my patient, I decided to try again. Tom guided me through an extremely simple step by step process and the case was a dream. No stress, no problems. Their quote, “no denture adventures” is absolutely true! I never have any surprises with any of the work we have done together and I simply LOVE working with Wiand. The added bonus of regular CE courses for doctors and staff is a big plus!”
Dr. Carol Ford
“I’ve been a client of Wiand Dental Lab for many years. I can’t say enough good things about them. They consistently provide me with quality service and products whether it be a simple case or a complex case. I routinely count on their advice. They’re always available to discuss any case I may have. Their great service reflects well upon my practice.”
Tim Loving, DMD, Loving Family Dental
“Wiand Dental Laboratory is my go to lab for all of my removable needs because they truly understand dentistry and grasp aesthetics like no one else. If you don’t think dentures are cosmetic, you haven’t ever worked with Wiand Dental Laboratory. They fabricate the most realistic and aesthetic looking dentures I’ve ever seen. They are the best lab I’ve ever worked with and I would highly recommend them to any dentist who wants to be successful in removable prosthetics.”
Dr. Steven Goldstein D.D.S.
