Celebrating 20 Years of DAMAS Accreditation
In 2018 Casterbridge Dental have been DAMAS accredited for 20 years. DAMAS stands for Dental Appliance Manufacturers Audit Scheme and it assures our clients that we are meeting the reqirements of Medical Devices Directive.
Had a great training day @ Casterbridge with a fantastic group of young DF1 trainee dentists. The day started with a tour round the lab followed by talks and lectures by David on products, materials, shade taking and articulation. After lunch, Tom James from Dentsply gave a talk on the Cerec Oral Scanner and digital workflow, before they all got a chance to use the scanner. Thanks to Tom and Dentsply for taking the time to participate in the training day and we would like to wish all the guys the best of luck in their future career as dentists.

Casterbridge Celebrate 25 Years with Christmas Celebrations @ River Cottage HQ
On 1st January 2016 Casterbridge Dental celebrated its 25th anniverary, so on the 23rd December we celebrated with a staff cooking course and our staff christmas meal at Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's River Cottage HQ. On arrival we were all transported down by tractor and trailer for a welcome drink of apple brandy in the yurt before moving into the barn for the rest of the evening. As you can see Christmas Jumpers were obligatory with prizes awarded for the best and worst. Well done everyone for 25 sucessful years.
Nondas Vlachopoulos Master Class - London
On the 5th Sept 2015 David spent 2 days in London on the Anterior Combination Master Class using Emax presented by Nondas Vlachopoulos. He chose David's tooth for the shade as it was very complex. Nondas is truly an amazing ceramist and the results were fantasic.
David felt priviledged to take part and gained a great deal.
Thanks to Nondas and Sue McCallum for organising a great weekend of training.
Tatsuya Minami @ Casterbridge
In April in conjunction with Skillbond, Tatsuya Minami came over from his lab in Spain to present his Noritake porcelain Art Oral course at Casterbridge. We were very lucky to have him in the lab for 2 days and our technicians were able to benefit from the course and the chance to share Tatsuya's knowledge and expertise on working with Noritake.
Printed Models. A Revolution in Dentistry?
James, David and Nick at the 3D printing exhibition @ the NEC on 26th Sept 13. These printers will produce dental models directly from a digital oral scan sent from the dentist to lab. This could have a significant impact of the accuracy of the final restoration, reduce production time and save reduce your lab costs. If you want to discuss this further give David a ring on 01305 264881 or e-mail on firstname.lastname@example.org
