Our leading Full Service Dental Laboratory offers a complete range of Crown & Bridge, Denture, and Orthodontic products.



Our History
Established in 1973, Protec Dental Laboratories Ltd. has grown to become one of Canada’s leading full-service dental laboratories. Originally started as Severs Orthodontic Laboratories, offering appliances to dentists in Vancouver, Severs grew rapidly and eventually became Protec Orthodontic Laboratories. In 1996, Protec acquired Shaw Laboratories and became Protec Dental Laboratories Ltd, a full service dental laboratory, broadening their product range to include fixed and removable prosthetics, and implants.
