Only 0.6% of US dental labs are DAMAS certified.We’d like to share with you what ROE Dental Laboratory stands for. Since 2007, in the interest of our valued customers, their patients, and our organization, ROE devoted thousands of man hours and a large financial commitment to become an FDA and NADL approved patient specific medical device manufacturer. The certification that ROE received in September, 2014 is called the Dental Appliance Manufacturers Audit System (DAMAS). Currently, there are roughly 7000 dental laboratory in the United States. Only 40 have achieved the DAMAS status.
What does this mean for you, our customer? It means that when you tell your patient, and your team, that your restorations come from ROE, you can add that your laboratory is among the elite dental laboratories in the industry; that they are FDA approved; that the approved materials utilized and processes implemented that make up your prosthetic devices are fabricated under a strict FDA protocol. This peace-of-mind statement adds value to the restorations you deliver. Patients should find satisfaction, comfort and certainly value in this statement.
What is DAMAS?
DAMAS provides a clear-cut process for improving documentation in every facet of laboratory operations including:
- dental prescriptions/work authorizations;
- patient contact materials;
- subcontractor/supplier agreements;
- material and equipment purchases;
- employee training;
- maintenance and calibration of equipment;
- labeling; customer complaints;
- material traceability.
The standards required by DAMAS closely mirror the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Quality System/Good Manufacturing Practice (QS/GMP) specifications, which are required of all dental laboratories conducting business in the United States.
Celebrate this achievement with us by sharing it with your patients and staff. We are grateful for the trust you place in our laboratory and emphasize our commitment to your practice by striving for excellence every day.
