On-Site Lab

On-Site Laboratory in Woodstock GAIn 1996, Dr. Berne had a vision to bring full service, removable prosthodontic care to patients from Atlanta to North Carolina. Committed to offering patients every advantage, GDIS added a full service, on-site dental lab to address the needs of those replacing missing teeth with implants, partial and full dentures. While having the lab in office does allow for quicker turn around time, it’s more important function is to enable chair side consultation between doctor, patient and the technicians custom crafting the removable prostheses. This direct communication between patient and specialist enables the patient to share any difficulties they have chewing or speaking, as well as their hopes for an ideal smile.

Wax try-ins will be available so that patients can see what their future smile will look like. This collaboration, coupled with personal knowledge of the patient, allows Georgia Denture & Implant Specialists to offer custom, quality dental work that brings back a patients smile and ability to chew comfortably.

Of course a lab is only as good as the technicians who staff it. Georgia Denture & Implant Specialists is proud to offer the talents of William, Dave and Rosa. Working hand in hand with Dr. Berne, Dr. Anderson, and Dr. Yoon, this collaboration of doctors, technicians and patient assures you that your finished denture will not only function well, but look naturally like your own smile.

To Georgia Denture and Implant Specialists,

May you know how much you and your lovely staff have aided and comforted me at a very traumatic juncture of my dental challenge/experience. You were disadvantaged and faced unfavorable conditions for achievement when you took my case. So, thank you sincerely for taking the challenge and successfully providing me with my beautiful teeth. Thank you for your professional expertise, and thank you for your kind and thoughtful ways.

Ellijay, GA

The folks at GA. Denture & Implants Specialists are great! For a long time, I delayed the inevitable denures, but I was immediately at ease and confident that everything would be just fine. I was right. After spending years of hiding my smile, I now am comfortable and smile BIG! I actually look forward to my visits. I highly recomment Dr. Berne for any prosthetic work you need done. No need to put if off any longer.

Roswell, GA
Dr. Berne was highly recommended by my dental surgeon.

Immediately I felt comfortable with the staff, and Dr. Berne was attentive, very kind and gentle. Dr. Berne is truly an artist. He even instructed me to bring in pictures of my smile (teeth showing) taken before my surgery so he could recreate my perfect smile. He actually did a wonderful job, right down to the slightly crooked tooth I had in front, and my friends have commented on how beautiful my teeth look. Whether someone needs implants or any other dental appliance, I trust Dr. Berne and his team to get the job done right.

Dr Bern and the twins are the best! Also the technician that "builds" the dentures is awesome also. My dentures look just like real teeth. I had my final dentures the day I had my teeth extracted. Highly recommend!!!
