Our laboratory was founded by Dan Hone, RDT, CGIST after a long career at the University of Alberta. We are still situated in the same location as Dan originally opened in Westbrook, only in a larger space.
Stuart Brown, after a 17 year tenure as an instructor of Dental Laboratory Technology at N.A.I.T., joined Dan at Brown & Hone Orthodontics.
Julie Brown started at the lab in 1992 and had the rare opportunity to be trained by Stuart and Dan, two of the most experienced technicians in the city, who combined had about 100 years of experience!
We now have five staff members, and all of our laboratory staff are Registered Dental Technicians. We feel that our intimate size gives us a great family atmosphere where we have the opportunity to be in touch with our clients' individual preferences on the fabrication of appliances, and our staff can work in a collaborative atmosphere.
For many of our clients, Brown and Hone has been their orthodontic specialist for more than 20 years. We truly value these relationships and look forward to working with you to meet your orthodontic needs.
Brown and Hone's goal is for our laboratory to be thought of synonymously with quality appliances. That is, ensuring our appliances look good, function great, and require as little of your time as possible upon insertion. We plan on reaching this goal by maintaining the three most important things to our business:
Without our clients, we wouldn’t be able to do what we love to do, so your satisfaction is our priority. We want to provide you with a level of service you have not experienced anywhere else. We offer free consultations to all of our clients, we keep records of our clients’ appliance fabrication preferences and specifications, and we design our appliances to ensure you require minimal chair side adjustment time.
All appliances fabricated at our lab must meet the high standards we have set for precision and quality control before it can leave our office. In a nutshell, nothing comes out of our laboratory unless it is something we would be happy having fit for our own family. We don’t believe in “good enough,” we believe in “standard of excellence.”
Our current staff have been mentored by technicians who are considered to have been the best in the city, and that is our founders, Stuart Brown and Dan Hone. The experience and demand for quality they shared in their training cannot be matched. Our laboratory is a family, and we all have a passion for quality. This is a combination that sets us apart from other laboratories.
