    • Our Mantra

      Your Work In Safe Hands

    • Innovation, dedication and communication is our mantra that keeps us passionate in the work we create and the service we provide.
    • Communication between the surgeons and technicians is essential for successful cases and relationships. We are here to help with case planning, troubleshooting and even as a knowledge base.
    • Every person you will speak to has passion for the trade and will always make every effort for a successful case and a happy patient.
    • The Triquetra

    • Throughout history the triquetra has been used in many cultures, but is rooted in Celtic and Germanic Paganism. The meaning differs slightly and it is accepted that the curves represent, man, woman and child together as a family, while the unbroken circle represents unity and eternity.
    • We are proud to use the triquetra as our flag to embody our ethos of treating every client and patient as we would our own family.

Quality Assurance

Dedicated To High Standards & Safety

The CosTech Elite Managers and all technicians are dedicated to providing you and your patients high quality dental products which are sure to exceed your expectations. CosTech Elite is an MHRA registered laboratory meaning all dental work complies with health & safety regulations. Being a member of the Dental Laboratory Association (DLA) helps us keep ahead of advancements in the dental field, allowing us to improve techniques and quality along the way.

DAMAS Accreditation

CosTech Elite has always held itself accountable to the highest standards and since 2011 this has been confirmed through intensive audits under the DAMAS quality management system.

  • Materials and their suppliers are thoroughly evaluated and approved by top management to make sure all restorations are made using high grade resources.
  • All dentist & patient feedback is recorded, filed and reviewed at regular intervals.
  • Highly efficient supply management reduces material wastage and ensures our prices remain competitive despite the high quality.
  • Strict administration procedures ensure that even during high volume periods all records are maintained in an orderly fashion and all jobs are returned on time.
  • Where possible, all machinery used in manufacture is regularly calibrated to guarantee consistent results.

GDC Registered Team

All restorations are quality checked, perfected and signed off by one of our highly experienced GDC registered technicians, before despatch.

Nickel Free Restorations

We are aware of the increasing number of individuals with nickel allergies, which is why the majority of our restorations are now nickel free. New research shows up to 16 percent of women and six percent of men are allergic to the nickel alloy in dental restorations. All our crown and bridge restorations are now nickel-free.

If your patient has an allergy to nickel, please inform our technicians who can suggest the best restoration for your patient.
