About Us

History

Eastern Dental Laboratory opened in 1983, and is operating under the leadership of Robert Martin R.D.T., a dental technologist since 1962, and he is a registered member in good standing with the CDTO and the ADTO. Robert was selected on three occasions as an examiner for our society of Registered Dental Technologists.

In 2008, we changed our name to EDL Dental Studio Ltd. to reflect our professional artistry in creating superior products for your patients, and the continuing modernization of our dental technology.

In 2010, we relocated our laboratory within downtown Belleville, Ontario to accommodate our growing business with a larger, modern facility. Our studio is centrally located between Toronto and Montreal, allowing us to easily service Doctors in Ontario and Quebec, as well as across Canada.

EDL is one of the few facilities in Eastern Ontario with the Optimet Laser CadDesign Scanner on site, which allows for the creation of Zirconia and Procera crowns, bridges, and custom abutments for implants.

Robert Martin
Owner, RDT

Robert spent many years in England and South Africa as a Registered Dental Technician, and then relocated to Canada in 1976, where he was employed at Dental Ceramics of Canada, later to become Baluke Dental Studios in Toronto, Ontario. During his time there, he became the head ceramist, and supervised a staff of 15. It was his daily duty to inspect all the metal frameworks prior to being finalized in the ceramic department. Before completion of the ceramic work, he again inspected the workmanship and then the cases were finished from that point. Robert became the manager of the entire technical operation of the laboratory, but still maintained his involvement in the ceramic department. During his time at Baluke Dental Laboratory, Robert taught the art of ceramics to numerous technicians.

Robert is an R.D.T., experienced in all aspects of dental laboratory procedures, as well as being involved in new materials and projects, not only in the past, but in future projects. Carefully supervising the finishing of each case personally, Robert constantly ensures the high quality of workmanship is maintained from start to finish. When not tending to doctor communications, you will find Robert at his workstation completing his own cases, inspecting the technician’s work, following up with quality control, and ensuring infection control protocols are maintained. Robert specializes in porcelain, and he is passionate about creating perfect smiles!
