• About Us

    We would like to introduce you to a progressive and innovative dental laboratory dedicated to your success...

    In 1980, Josh Green decided that a first-class dental laboratory could excel and grow in the quiet comfortable atmosphere of Heber Springs, Arkansas.

    Craftsmen from all walks of life were to be found in this small community, and... because Josh was convinced that Green Dental Laboratory would be a success. His choice was a good one, Green Dental's caring staff has proven to be highly qualified in providing outstanding restorations to dentists throughout North America. 100% Satisfaction Guaranteed!

    Green Dental Laboratory can help you solve problems by reducing stress that comes with the practice of dentistry. Every effort is made to serve you with speed and courtesy, while delivering quality restorations at reasonable fees.
