Benefiting Dental Labs

Laboratory Partners

Partners collaborate with laboratory members on the best ways to lower expenses, maximize growth, and, provide top quality products and service.

Bego USA


More than ever before, access to reliable cutting edge technology serves as a cornerstone for a small lab owner’s competitiveness. Bego USA provides every OPT-In dental laboratory member with the technology access they need.

We spent several months looking for the right company with the right technology. But it wan’t just Bego USA’s laser sintered metal technology, or their attention to details when milling ceramics, both considered by many to be the best that attracted our attention. It was also their willingness to work closely in support of our members. Whether it be co development with others, education, or their special members only pricing, Bego USA has made it clear, they support owners of small dental laboratories.


IQnection has done a fantastic job of developing this website and our consumer website, www.optindentaladvantage.com. They kept our costs down while keeping value high through excellent customer service, timeliness, and product quality. They have been a dream to work with.


We are proud to feature the NADL as a partner of all OPT-In Dental Labortories, and support all it does for lab owners. The NADL and OPT-In have arranged for special pricing for our respective members. Be sure to inquire about how you can save with joint memberships.

Norton Dental Product Group

Norton slim

As would befit a dental organization of mainly small to medium sized labs, our lab supply partner is family owned and operated. Located in Atlanta, GA, Norton Dental Product Group is providing our members with savings normally reserved for our much larger lab members. Plus, working with Norton, everyone knows the owner and the entire family. It has been a great relationship, and one we look forward to growing with.

Heraeus Kulzer, LLC Scrap Refining


It’s not often that small dental labs are afforded a relationship that can benefit both them and their dentists with special pricing. That’s what makes Heraeus Kulzer a special partner for OPT-In. As the leading scrap refiner in dentistry, they are the only “end to end” refiner in the entire industry. That means, while others still have to sell scrap after it is melted and assayed, and decrease its value, as an end refiner, Heraeus Kulzer will reimburse our members the actual value of their scrap metal, plus an OPT-In member's bonus. 



LabStar was released in January 2012, after two and half years of development and beta-testing with a select group of dental labs. By providing a new type of web-based dental laboratory software that was inexpensive and easy-to-use, lab owners finally had software that made life easier.

With LabStar, our members never pay click fees, license fees, upgrade fees, usage timers, and there are no limitations on the number of users. A vast number of our members have been using LabStar and have never looked back. We're proud to recommend this web-based product to any lab.
