Demar Dental Labs, a full service dental laboratory in Mahwah, New Jersey has just decided to say no to a generous offer made by a Chinese company which would have in effect taken work away from America and its New Jersey operation.

Demar Dental's Demanding Dental Clients

"We've been making dental crowns, bridges and implants for more than 30 years right in New Jersey for the best dentists in the New York Metro area and we're not about to change now!"

While almost three quarters of their competitors outsource work to offshore labs, there’s one dental lab that has just refused an overture to send its work offshore. On April 7th, 2012 Demar Dental labs was approached by a large offshore dental lab in China with an offer they thought no one could refuse. "Send us your dental crowns, bridges and implants and we promise the owners will make 30-50% more per year in their own pockets." These were the words as paraphrased by the Demar Dental Labs managing partner, Rob Santelli. So why would anyone in these tough economic times say no to an offer that would put more money in their pockets? Mr. Santelli says.. " It can't only be about making more and more money. If I had said yes, I would have agreed to take work away from America and jobs away from my fellow Americans."

“Sure it costs less to make a crown or a bridge in China than in New Jersey,” says Mr Santelli, “but would our clients get the same quality dental restoration, that’s the big question” He goes on to say, “there are a couple of important reasons we decided to keep our work in New Jersey; the first reason is that the dental prosthesis we fabricate must be 100% bio-compatible or our clients patients run the risk of infection or worse; another reason is that our dental technicians worked hard over the years and helped to build this business so how could I in good conscience tell them they no longer had a job because I decided to make a little extra money by sending their job to China?”

The folks at Demar Dental Labs made a stand on April 7th, 2012 and they did it because they truly believe that "in order for us to get out of these difficult times patients, dentists and labs alike must pull together and work hard to keep any work we can - here, in America."

Demar Dental Labs is a full service dental laboratory fabricating dental crowns, bridges, implants and removable dentures for the last thirty years. All of its work is currently made in its state of the art facility in Mahwah, New Jersey. For more information or to contact Demar Dental Labs contact Rob Santelli at 201-529-1700.
