A Toothsmiths solution demonstrates excellence in applied knowledge, design and function, esthetics, production, and communication, ensuring the satisfaction of both patient and dental practitioner.

Dentists, dental specialists, and oral surgeons rely on Toothsmiths, an established U.S. business, to provide superior quality, excellent service, and fair prices.

The key to success in any type of reconstructive prosthetic design must be based on, and begin with, strong and efficient communication with a dental laboratory. Jim Ament, M.D.T., and his team at Toothsmiths provide accessibility to each artisan in every department, working to "simplify the complex" regardless of the reconstructive challenge.

When it comes to problem-solving and the proverbial "catching the curveball", Toothsmiths exceeds expectations in their passion to research and resolve all issues, to the benefit of both the patient and the practice they serve. I am proud, on a daily basis, to work with this fine group of professionals.

We have dealt exclusively with Toothsmiths for nearly six years. During that time, our entire staff found it very easy to communicate with every member of the Toothsmiths team. Special requests were never a problem as they were always willing to accommodate our patient's needs. Their concern for the well being of our practice and our patient's is undeniably genuine. Toothsmiths is clearly a leader in not only equipping themselves with the most advanced technology, but also clearly demonstrating their ability to apply it. From implant restoration to full mouth reconstruction, Jim Ament and his expert staff have proven invaluable in helping me design and finish these cases with utmost function and aesthetics.
