Our ethos

We have worked hard at Ambridge Ceramics to create a dental laboratory team that works together like a well - oiled machine. This team spirit extends to the dentists and dental practices that we work with.

We believe that the dental lab you work with should be an extension and integral part of your existing team, which is something we always aim to achieve. The Ambridge Ceramics technicians work in close collaboration with every one of our clients, forging great working relationships through strong communication and attention to detail.

Our sole focus is on ensuring that your patients receive the best quality dental restorations available, which we provide by using the best materials, latest research, and highly skilled technicians. We constantly invest in the latest training, equipment, materials, and technology to ensure we meet that goal. We work hard and use our skill and knowledge to advise solutions to restorative challenges, allied with a high degree of technical back-up,
care, and guidance that others may not be able to offer. As dental implant experts, our highly skilled team offers you and your patients a wealth of experience and expertise.

From a difficult anterior crown to full smile makeovers, we are your dental implant crown, bridge and veneer experts.

Our history

We were established in 1986 and have gone from strength to strength, growing through referrals. When Mark Ambridge graduated from Leeds in 1984, he set up the business supporting one dental practice in a small lab based in Ripon. Since then, Ambridge Ceramics has grown organically and we now boast many qualified technicians who service hundreds of dentists across the UK.

We are proud to say that, more than 35 years later, we are still true to our word, still growing and gaining more referral clients every day because we continue to create beautiful natural smiles for all our clients.

Our services

We offer crown, bridge and implant services from single unit restorations through to more complex case planning with diagnostic assessments and highly personal and technical implant restorations.

We pride ourselves on enhancing the dentist and patient experience through delivering exceptional dental restoration craftsmanship. We
are able to offer a complete laboratory solution for all dental surgeries.

Our investment

At Ambridge Ceramics we strive to improve our service to you by advancing the way we do things. We were delighted to be the first and the only UK authorised manufacturer of surgical guides with Blue Sky Bio. We have invested in this digital process to provide dentists and patients with a simpler, faster, and more economical dental process to encourage improved patient experience.

Our new 3D printing capability completes the process to provide dentists with an end-to-end solution that can be adopted under one workflow. By simply engaging Ambridge Ceramics we can assist with the whole process. We are able to work with all digital options available in the UK such as 3shape Trios, Carestream, iTero, Cerec Connect and many more.

We offer CAD/CAM custom abutments uniquely called the ‘Smart Design’ abutment. Along with the Dentsply - Atlantis titanium bases and abutments, these premium implant solutions will deliver a superior aesthetic result while also offering excellent cost efficiency. Incorporating 3shape, Nobel Biocare, Sirona InLAB CAD/CAM capabilities, Biomet 3i and Astra Atlantis, our rolling programme of investment ensures we identify and employ only the very best equipment, including using Mantis Stereo magnifiers for all stages of lab work.

Our standards

We ensure the very highest standards by using a very comprehensive management, traceability and auditing system (DAMAS). This tracks and traces everything from materials through to technician training and competency, all to a much higher level than is required by most laboratories who run a basic MDD audit system (the minimum level required by the MHRA for any dental lab in the UK).

We have taken the framework of the system, improved and expanded upon the basic requirements to ensure we are fully compliant with your CQC regulations for all laboratory work you receive from us.
