SCDL's Continuing Professional Development offering continues to grow, with more than 60 CPD points available from an unparalleled selection of Invisalign® education courses, intra-oral scanning demonstration seminars and clinical readings.
As clinical dentists approaching the second decade of the 21st century, we face an increasingly difficult challenge to satisfy all of our patients' demands. Patients are now far more concerned about tooth conservation, dental aesthetics and biocompatibility of restorative materials, yet still want it delivered at a reasonable fee.
Since 1983, SCDL has provided consistently high quality, state of the art, fixed and removable prosthodontics to dentists around the world at prices which represent incredible value for money. Prosthodontists, universities, government clinics and thousands of dentists in private practice utilise the rare combination of our technical excellence and the clinical expertise of our staff.
Significantly, dentists note a considerable improvement in practice profitability when sending their lab work to SCDL, with no sacrifice in quality or service.
Southern Cross Dental Laboratories is unique amongst the leading laboratories in the world in that we can guide you through each and every stage of the complicated process of tooth restoration or replacement. From initial treatment planning, all the way through to cementation or denture delivery, SCDL’s experienced and highly qualified team of dentists and technicians are there to help remove any obstacles or doubts that you may have.
With the demand for all-ceramic and biocompatible restorations ever increasing, SCDL continues to invest heavily in research and development in both clinical and laboratory procedures. SCDL partners with Modern Dental Laboratory, one of very few labs worldwide with ISO certification and satisfies all GDC, FDA, TGA and EC requirements. It implements a quality management system that is certified under ISO 9001:2003 and ISO 13485:2008.
The need for a complete understanding of all the chairside and technical aspects in bonded restorations has never been so critical. This website will give you a brief glimpse of some of the latest techniques as well as offering state of the art on line continuing education.
SCDL provides a full range of products and services to meet all of your needs. All aspects of fixed and removable prosthodontics, all-ceramic restorations, implants, occlusal appliances and anti-snoring devices are available.
We are excited about the popularity of our new four day Invisalign accreditation course which teaches dentists how to use Invisalign for orthodontic movements and to integrate a realignment phase into aesthetic dentistry treatments. Utilising the brilliant Invisalign system, dentists are now working with SCDL’'s team of clinical experts to provide aesthetic outcomes for many patients that they could not treat previously. Courses are available in group settings or as more intimate and personalised in-surgery offerings in Australia and New Zealand and includes a course for dental auxiliaries.
Our new generation “FMZir” fully milled, monolithic zirconia crowns were released in June 2010 and have been incredibly popular already as an indestructible and more aesthetic alternative to full metal crowns in the posterior segment.
SCDL are about to launch a digital work flow solution in the first quarter of 2011 which offers dentists with intra-oral scanners the option to send scans for model making and crown production. The accuracy and fit of these restorations is unsurpassed and the obvious advantages of circumventing a traditional impression cannot be overstated.
We hope that you find this website useful and look forward to helping you with any of your laboratory requirements. Please do not hesitate to ring us directly for clinical or technical assistance.
