Friendly and Welcoming Staff
At Denture & Implant Cottage, we understand that many people are uncomfortable in a dental setting. Whether because of a bad experience in the past or exposure to stereotype, some people have an unreasonable fear of undergoing dental work. As a result, we do all we can to make the experience less intimidating and less stressful for everyone concerned. Our office reflects a “homey” décor that doesn’t feel like a clinic, and our staff is very friendly and welcoming. Discover the difference for yourself by contacting our office to schedule an appointment.

Lucy Laflamme - Laboratory Technician
Lucy is our behind the scenes magician. She works full time in our laboratory. In our lab she pours all the dental impressions, trims the stone models, fabricates all the custom final impression trays along with the pin tracing bite registration devices; she then mounts the dental models onto the articulator to have ready for the denturist to set the denture teeth. Once the denturist and the patient are satisfied with the wax tryin, Lucy magically processes them into our high-impact denture acrylic using our top-of-the-line, precision-ensured Ivobase injection system. Lucy is also responsible for ensuring that all our laboratory materials are fully stocked and ordered as well. She consistently brings a plentiful bounty of laughs with her Newfoundland wit and charm!! Her high attention to detail and efficiency ensure that our quality delivered at every stage of the denture making process is exact and always on time!
