About Cal-Lab

Founded in 1926, the Cal-Lab Association is the oldest dental laboratory organization in continuous existence. Initially, the Cal-Lab Association was known as the Certified Akers Laboratories (hence the name Cal). Today, the Cal-Lab Association functions solely for the benefit of its members without obligation to promote any specific product, technique, or special interest. The Cal-Lab Association is an independent, international association of dental laboratories. Our growing number of members includes over 200 labs.

Every year, our members gather for an annual conference to discuss the issues facing the industry. As a forum for education and a means for members to share insights about the industry’s new direction, the Cal-Lab Association aims to continually better the quality of care our members provide their doctors.
