Scullin Laboratory Scullin Laboratory Scullin Laboratory

Our in-office Dental Laboratory is owned and operated by brothers Ken and Lee Scullin, second generation certified technicians with over 30 years experience. Both Ken and Lee started their careers working as laboratory support for a cutting edge dental practice in downtown Cleveland. In 1993 they formed the Scullin Dental Laboratory and built a state of the art facility within Dr. Cooke's practice in Westlake. 

Ken has studied with the best technicians in the world to learn about tooth shape, how teeth work in function and the intricacies of sculpting with porcelain. Creating lifelike ceramic restorations involves knowledge of a complex blend of color, translucency, shape and function. Ken has spent his professional career perfecting that blend. Ken is an ongoing participant at The Institute for Oral Art and Design, having completed a variety of advanced courses.

Lee holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Cleveland State University and has studied at the Dawson Center for Advanced Dental Study. He lectures both locally and nationally on case planning and dental implants. Using this knowledge Ken and Lee are recognized as leaders among dental laboratories using the finest materials, techniques and services. As such, they are a certified laboratory for Biomet Implant Innovations, Inc., the world leader in implant technology.

Ken and Lee are both Certified Dental Technicians. Lee holds an additional distinction of the National Association of Dental Laboratories awarded to technicians who have 25 years of experience in the field and who have passed a rigorous series of written and practical examinations.  Their Certification requires that they complete at least 12 hours of continuing education per year.  Ken and Lee routinely take 50 to 75 hours of CE annually on their way to staying in the forefront of their field.

They are proud to have both attended the L.D. Pankey Institute for Advanced Dental Education, one of the world’s premier sources of continuing education for dentists and technicians.

The original Scullin Dental Laboratory was started by their father, Joseph V. Scullin and his brother Brendan in the late 1930’s. It was located in the Rose Building in downtown Cleveland for over 30 years. Their laboratory’s reputation for excellence has lasted well beyond their retirement. This new Scullin Dental Laboratory is a continuation of their heritage of quality and integrity in dentistry.
