About Sherring Lucas

Providing industry-leading standards of Quality and Reliability to the Dental Profession

Quality and Reliability to the Dental Profession

Our Laboratory was founded in 1975 by Michael Sherring-Lucas, with the aim of achieving industry-leading standards of Quality and Reliability to the Dental Profession. These standards were successfully achieved, and still prevail today.

In 1989 ownership of the company passed to the present Directors Gary Young and Bill Manning, (having been the two heads of department for 8 years).

Their continual commitment to Quality Standards resulted in our Laboratory becoming one of the very first in the U.K. to achieve Full Certification to International Quality Standards in 1992.

We continue to be fully certified to DAMAS, and are pleased to offer a comprehensive 2 year Guarantee against defects in workmanship or materials on all Private Crown and Bridgework.

Equipped with the latest dental equipment and materials

The Laboratory itself is Air Conditioned, and fully equipped with the very latest dental equipment and materials. This, coupled with our strict Quality control regime, highly skilled staff and general market awareness, help ensure our continual achievement of those goals set over 30 years ago.

Consistent Quality - Guaranteed

Consistent Quality of Manufacture

We are more than happy to offer a comprehensive 2 year Guarantee against any defects in workmanship or materials on all of our work.

Consistent Quality of Service

Communication and reliability are the key!

We will always call you to discuss any concerns we may have, to request clarification of instructions, or simply to offer advice when appropriate.

We offer a Free treatment planning service for large or problem cases, and of course we are available if you wish to call to us!

Consistent Quality of Aesthetics

If you are unhappy with the aesthetics of your case for any reason, we guarantee to correct it free of charge*

* unless the problem is due to inaccurately supplied shade, prescription change, or another issue identified and advised by us as being of concern prior to completion.

Consistent Quality of Materials

We use the highest quality materials, from some of the leading manufacturers in dentistry.

An easy claim to make, however one of the many benefits of being fully certified to Damas**, is that all of our purchased patient contact materials must conform to MDD requirements and be traceable.

In other words, we Guarantee that we never knowingly use sub-standard materials, and we can prove it!

**DAMAS is the ‘Dental Appliance Manufacturers Audit Scheme.

This is a quality management system designed specifically for the manufacturers of custom made medical devices.

Once a year our laboratory is audited by a third party assessor to verify our continued conformance to Damas specification, and therefore UK and EU regulations.

This is a set of criteria that guarantees consistency, and is your guarantee of our compliance with the requirements of the Medical Devices Directive (MDD) and the Medical Devices Regulations (MDR)
