What We Do

Knight Dental Design is a family-run “boutique” dental laboratory providing aesthetic technical solutions and marketing support to private dental practices nationwide. It was founded in 1982 and is the proud winner of an unprecedented 6x UK Dental Laboratory of the Year Awards.


The Lab has become renowned for the quality of its work and the natural appearance of the smiles it creates.

London based

The laboratory is based in South London and employs a small team of registered dental technicians. The laboratory works for a very selective number of discerning dentists in the UK, Ireland and Europe.

Pioneer of new technology

A pioneer of pressed ceramic and CAD-CAM technology, the laboratory continually integrates the latest technology with the traditional artistic skills of its artisan technicians to produce unique custom-made restorations and naturally beautiful smiles.

Our Partner Practices

We regard all our client dentists as partners in our mission to educate patients of the benefits of high quality aesthetic dentistry. We develop a close working relationship with our partners based on mutual respect, effective communication and the sharing of knowledge in the pursuit of excellence.

Practices working with us appreciate the value of expert technical support and call on our 30 years experience of aesthetic technical dentistry for advice on treatment planning, materials and techniques. We work with many award winning practices throughout the UK and Ireland and have often been credited with being instrumental in their success.

We regard it as our duty to educate patients about the difference a high quality laboratory can make to their clinical and aesthetic results and to provide our partner practices and their patients with access to the photographic evidence of the results we achieve every week.
