Our corporate mission is much like my personal mission. It is to take care of others. This takes many forms:
We strive to consistently provide our clients with the best work we can produce in a timely fashion at reasonable prices.
We will probably never get rich doing what we do, but there are tens of thousands of people smiling better because of what we do. At the end of the day, there is plenty to be grateful for

(Most of us came from other laboratories. Esthetic Dental Arts, Ideal, JZ, Highland, Enchantment and others. At CoLab, we found a home and a family of like-minded people.)
CoLab was started in 2009 as a response to changes going on the industry.
Originally set up as a co-op of laboratories working together, the vision of CoLab was smaller labs working together, sharing resources, giving all of us access to all of the products available.
Why should every small local lab have their own receptionist, their own driver and be expected to produce every new product on the market. What if we could work together and focus on the things we were good at and all help each other grow?
Along the way, we created an environment where the talent and history of Desert Ceramics, Highland Dental Lab, Enchantment Dental Studios and others could be absorbed and live on.
