Our Story

Barksdale Dental Laboratory is a family owned business that has been bringing quality restorations to clients for thirty five years. Our tenacious team of experienced technicians work diligently to maximize marginal integrity, precision fit, axial/occlusal/group function, as well as aesthetic brilliance for each case. Barksdale is a progressive company, investing in new technology and products to provide clients with groundbreaking innovations in the industry. Additionally, Barksdale is an accomplished business, having received several Smile Gallery Awards throughout the years. In an industry burdened by offshoring, Barksdale has remained consistent with its values and continues to make every restoration in the USA. 

“My life’s dream has been realized by the lasting careers my husband and I have been able to create for American workers. I love this country, and I love this company.” – Betty Barksdale, Owner, Barksdale Dental Lab


Our Mission

Our future is as bright as our Gold-Medal Signature Smiles.
