Technical Support

A-line Dental Services offers a technical support service which can provide a more personal, bespoke service for dentists and patients. We want our clients to feel they can contact us as often as they need to for us to be able to produce the quality of work required. The support service includes:

Shade takes: At A-line we offer a comprehensive shade taking service. This provides patients the opportunity to visit the laboratory and also the time to discuss, one to one with the technician who will be constructing their dental work. Surgery visits are also available for those who cannot make it to the laboratory.

Technical support: if you have any queries or difficult cases, we are always available by phone or e-mail. Feel free to get in contact and you will be able to speak to our technicians directly about patient’s needs.

Treatment planning options: our Senior Technicians have more than 180 years experience of expertise and knowledge of materials, products and dental systems. Give us a call and let us help increase the range of options available to you.
