Dental Ceramics of Iowa City has been fabricating high quality restorations for over thirty years. We are a crown and bridge lab who specializes not only in high-quality restorations, but high-quality customer service.

After accruing ten years of experience as a Certified Expanded Function Dental Assistant, Nancy Collins purchased Dental Ceramics of Iowa City in 1982. Since then, she has used her experience to discover the finest technicians, designers, and artisans in the dental industry.

Our knowledgeable, longtime staff members know the intricacies and advancements of the dental industry, and are acutely aware of the patient’s presence behind every crown. We realize that we are meeting both the standards of our doctors, and exceeding the expectations of their patients. When we deliver a restoration, we know that we have delivered the perfection your practice requires.
