Katara Dental has its origins in the well known DENTECH LABORATORY of Mumbai set up in 1985 by Dr. Mukesh Katara. Dr. Katara is a dental surgeon with postgraduate qualifications from the University of Bombay. After his training in dental technology under Prof. Dr. L.W.R. Kobes at the ZMK Klinik, Gottingen University, Germany, Dr Katara honed his skills at multiple private laboratories in Germany. He then launched DENTECH LABORATORY which is now one of India's finest, best equipped and staffed laboratories. Dentech has a staff of 35 qualified and dedicated personnel.
In 1994, KATARA DENTAL was set up in Pune. The ultramodern facility is spread over 800 square metres, employees over 120 staff and specializes in innovative dental technology. In 2001, a state-of-the-art full service laboratory was set up in downtown Bangalore. In 2007, a new laboratory has been set up in New Delhi catering to the high demand needs of practicing dentists in and around Delhi. We are able to meet the wide range of demands from the small practice to the large clinic from the 4 laboratories. We cater to dentists and prosthodontists throughout India, and some overseas.
The organization is totally committed to quality and service. Apart from the latest equipment, we provide our team of technicians a safe and comfortable workplace, along with the mentoring and tools to help us achieve our objective... quality and service that puts the smile back, on patients and doctors alike!
We guarantee at any time to use only high quality and proven materials for all steps of the processing starting from model making. We believe that providing an accurate and detailed plaster die stone model is often the most important step in constructing a high quality restoration. And then making dependable dies that fall perfectly back into place, and that are accurately ditched by experienced hands, to ensure good fit and margins that are so important to the success.
Waxing up is done by master craftsman after providing a spacer for luting agents, using waxes that have extremely low shrinkage and invested in investment materials that offer fine detail smooth surface and controlled expansion to produce perfect castings.
Alloys that have favorable properties are used, like beryllium free non precious alloys that are physiologically acceptable or high gold containing or reduced gold containing alloys that are biocompatible and corrosion resistant and if required nickel free or palladium free for the sensitive patients.
Ceramic and veneering materials that are state of the art offering a wider choice in biocompatibility and aesthetics are used.
In formulating the appropriate treatment plan, we offer the widest possible range of alternatives to the dentist.... with special emphasis on offering the latest technological options. Dental Prostheses made for the patients are a result of teamwork between a clinician and a technician. These two are partners in every success or failure. We on our part ensure highest quality and we depend on you to ensure proper preparation...If these two are ensured, so is success.
