Aussie-made dentures

A growing trend in the dental industry within Australia is to have dental appliances manufactured overseas (China) at a lower cost.

John Linton and Andrew Innes have been making dentures on the north coast for 25 years. The dentures are made in Australia by Australians and the boys stand behind their workmanship and service. All materials are certified by the TGA and none of the work is sent overseas as it is all made in the Ballina Dental Lab and Clinic.

They offer the very best services – having same-day relines and repair service. Come and see John and Andrew at the lab for a free consultation and quote on all your denture needs.

Call Ballina Dental Lab on 6686 8842.
Located in the Tamar Centre at 10/48 Tamar St, Ballina.
