Experience the DPS Difference
Family owned and operated for more than 45 years, DPS is proud of the relationships we have built with our dentists and their offices. From a simple phone call, to case planning, chairside assistance, and continuing education, we make it our mission to not only give you and your patients beautiful restorations, but also to enhance your practice.
We are a full-service lab with a rich history of state-of-the-art technology and a proud tradition in providing premium quality prosthesis and outstanding customer service.
Using both our technology and technical skill, we strive to maximize our doctors’ efficiency and profitability, while improving patients’ quality of life, appearance, and health.
In 2015, DPS received an Outstanding Volunteer award from Dental Lifeline Network – Iowa. DPS has worked on more than 300 DDS cases over the years. Since 1990, DPS has donated almost $120,000 in free lab services to vulnerable people in Iowa.
DPS is a Certified Dental Laboratory through The National Board for Certification in Dental Laboratory Technology. This designation requires stringent infection control and case management standards with a Certified Dental Technician overseeing each specialty in the laboratory.
Laboratories who have taken the extra steps to become certified represent the top of their field. CDLs have documented not only compliance with peer-defined standards, but also a desire to stay in the forefront of the industry.
DPS is also a member of both the National Association of Dental Laboratories and TEREC, a select group of independently owned regional dental laboratories dedicated to bringing leading edge technology to the dentists that they serve and their patients.
