Why do so many labs choose DentaLab?
The DentaLab/PC user group has become the largest in the United States
and Canada and includes all sizes and specialties within the dental
laboratory industry. Why do so many laboratories choose this system?
It is specially designed for dental laboratories...
Its initial design and the many ideas and suggestions that have
followed from our work directly with dental laboratories have resulted
in a design especially tuned in to the needs of many labs. It is not
just a standard accounting system with a few features for dental labs
tacked on. It is not just one view of what is needed...but the voice of
It uses up-to-date technology...
The system was first written in the 1990-91 years using programming
and development tools centered around Microsoft’s 'C' language. This
earlier system is called DentaLab/PC and can run under many
platforms...IBM DOS, Microsoft DOS and Windows 3.1 through 95.
It was then rewritten in 1997-8 for Windows 95/98 and NT using C++
and the 32-bit Windows API (application program interface). This system
is called DentaLab/PC II. In 2002, it was updated for use with Windows
In 2004-5, we worked closely with Intuit to create DentaLab for
QuickBooks. This adds case management, including scheduling,
preferences, alerts, quality control and technician tracking, to the
highly popular QuickBooks for financial management of small-medium

From the ideas and suggestions of our users, an extraordinary number
of options and features are now included in the system...and this does

quarters each year. You can choose to use whatever is appropriate for
you...from the simple starter set to sophisticated barcode case
tracking and technician productivity. For printed invoices, statements
and even labels, there are not just one or two choices but rather you
can choose or design any format you would like.
The voice of each laboratory is heard...
The DentaLab/PC systems are not stagnant or limited. We encourage
input from the laboratories to let us know what will make their lives
easier and what information is needed to run their operations more
