On-Site Lab Known for Complex Denture Rehabilitations
As an outsource lab for the University of Toronto, Dental Department, the Sommer’s lab, Micro-Dent, was involved with the university’s early implant research program, providing technical lab support. Working closely with his father, Andy Sommer was involved in initial bar and hybrid designs for new and exciting fixed and removable implant prosthesis. In 1992, he started Sommer Restorative Prosthetics (SRP), a laboratory specializing in implant restorations. This firm merged with Aurum Ceramic – Canada’s largest dental lab group – in 1994 to create Classic Dental Labs Toronto Ltd. in 2010.

Initially starting with a 1,000-square foot facility, Classic Dental Labs now has 8,400 square feet with an education centre at the site of Sommer Denture Centre, specializing in complex denture rehabilitations.
