Hockel Digital Dentistry
Bigger isn't always better. We partner with a very high quality local milling center for all of your digital dental needs. By staying local, and utilizing a highly skilled and experienced digital designer and technician, we provide the absolute highest quality zirconia products available. Each digital case is planned by Hockel Dental Lab, and the necessary requirements of each case are designed in house before proceeding to our milling center.
Our Lab Star software adds a new dimension to our communication and customer support. The HIPPA Secure Client Portal provides information and connectivity that was previously impossible. We offer end to end case visibility and tracking, and if you desire, you can use your own private dashboard giving you real-time production updates, track shipping, view and print statements, make payments, and attach photos.
Never before has it been so easy to maintain contact and give doctors access to their lab cases.
Hockel Dental Lab
By growing up in a dental family, owner/operator Steve Hockel was influenced by many different philosophies early on, and was so intrigued by the profession that shortly after high school he decided that a career in dental technology was a great fit for him also. He has operated Hockel Dental Lab for nearly 30 years, after graduating from Diablo Valley College's Dental Laboratory program in 1987. He has studied under numerous mentors, and has participated in a multitude of continuing education programs over the years on topics such as dental implants, occlusion and function, esthetics, and smile design. Assisting doctor clients with the planning and design of cases is just one element of an excellent customer service plan that focuses on the individual needs of each doctor.
We can assist in the planning, diagnosis, creation, and servicing of any cosmetic or restorative cases. Our goal is very simple: to give our doctor satisfaction by providing work that is beautiful and easy to place. And to give your patient long lasting comfort, and a confident smile by providing the highest quality lab work available.
