The difference between a “good” and a “great” restorative outcome ultimately comes down to a close working relationship between the dentist and lab technician. They must be one team, one entity, one brain. Whatcom Dental Lab not only gives the idea of teamwork lip service, but lives and breathes it every day. It is truly a collaborative environment where the focus is on continually getting better, not on ego.

Phenomenal communication, exquisite artistic abilities, and exceptional mentorship. From the first touch to the last check, every case gets several layers of attention and care. They are some of the most honest, generous and warm-hearted group of individuals that I have had the pleasure of working with.
Whatcom County has produced some of the most incredible dentists and educators which are all known internationally. It is a humbling realization that most of the work that has been delivered by these dentists have been fabricated by hands of the artists from WDL. We are a small community that is growing at an exceptional rate. WDL has been skillfully keeping up with the increased demand due to this growth. However, what keeps me as a loyal partner is that they never compromise in the quality of their work. I have nothing but respect for everyone at WDL and hope to work side by side with them in years to come.

Whatcom Dental Lab is a rare combination of communication, innovation, proximity, expertise and value. You can find a few of these attributes in other labs, but you’ll usually have to sacrifice something. I started with Rick in 2009. The ‘feel’ of the lab has remained the same through relocations and expansions under Nate’s supervision. I’m happy with the consistency of the product they return. Good job, team!
My custom shade appointment was very fast and efficient. Nate is a nice person and seemed very well trained. He listened to my concerns and addressed them.
Just got my bridge installed today. The color match is absolute perfection! Great service and outstanding quality!!!

As a patient, thank you for your professionalism, friendliness, attention to detail and excellent sterilization procedures.
My custom shade appointment with Nate was quick, efficient and he communicated well with me. Thanks Nate!!
Working with Whatcom Dental Lab was a very pleasant experience. Nate was very helpful and extremely knowledgeable.
I meet with Nate who took me to his custom shade room for photos and color matching on my replacement tooth for my crown. Whatcom Dental Lab is professional and informative.
My implant matches my other teeth perfectly!! Top notch, professional, knowledgeable service. Thank you the care you take.
It’s an honor to witness and to be apart of a team who cares so much about the details of every single case that makes its way through the lab. We care about the people who we serve in our community and beyond. The communication between our doctors and the lab is simply amazing. That communication is very new to me as I have never worked for a lab that cares so much about “getting it right” rather than putting up a fight.
Working for WDL has given me fresh perspective on how a REAL team pulls together to help each other out when needed without grumbling. This lab is also very good about making sure that every single employee is comfortable at their work stations and has PROPER working equipment that’s required to do an excellent job with ease. They care about their employees and want them all to be happy when they walk through the front door.
I finally feel like I have a permanent place of work, I wake up and enjoy coming to work! The environment is amazing and welcoming, and WDL always makes me feel super needed.
This has been the most supportive and friendly place I’ve ever worked. Additionally, this is the highest paying job I’ve ever had, and the owners have been proactive with giving me raises to match this terrible inflation we’re all dealing with in 2022.
The main difference here from my previous jobs is that motivation to do better, learn more, work longer. It comes mainly from feeling like I have a direct real influence on the quality of the product and my ability to make everyone’s job a bit easier & smoother.
Everyone is not only friendly but very good at explaining what they need. If someone needs me to augment something or handle some other task in the lab, people just communicate openly and never angrily. This makes the lab an enjoyable job and much easier to focus on being as efficient as I can be.
