Due to COVID-19 precautions, our Laboratory has taken additional actions to protect your patients and our employees. To ensure the safety of our employees and to determine the eligibility for you to send a patient to our Laboratory, we will be pre-screening your patients by phone when their appointment is scheduled. Additionally, we will screen your patients once they arrive at the laboratory. The following policies have been implemented

*** During the custom shade appointment, our Technicians will be wearing the proper PPE. All items and surfaces will be disinfected after each appointment using CaviCide.

Triad's Custom Shade Protocol:

A Friendly Reminder Before Arriving To A Custom Shade Appointment At Our Laboratory:

In order to achieve an optimal shading outcome, below are a few things to keep in mind when scheduling the appointment.
  • Due to the dehydration of the teeth, the patient should wait at least 24 hours after being anesthetized before a custom shade is taken.
  • If the patient is bleaching, please wait a minimum of two weeks after completing the bleaching process before a custom shade is taken.
*** We will review this information with each patient when the custom shade appointment is scheduled.

We will be glad to supply patient appointment cards for your Dental office.
