This Work Schedule outlines times necessary to complete certain tasks performed by our laboratory.  Please note that each and every day, as indicated on the schedule, is critical in the production of that particular task.   Keystone Dental Lab prides itself in never missing a due date as long as the proper amount of time is given to complete the procedure.

         Keystone Dental Lab is a small, high quality and service oriented laboratory.  The only way for Keystone to achieve these high standards of quality and service is for the dental office to allow the proper amount of work days needed for each procedure.   We hope this information will make your scheduling easier.
