G&H Dental Arts recently announced the acquisition of Cushman & Associates Dental Lab and Buttress-Wilshire Dental Laboratory, adding personnel and new offerings to the 80-person lab.

Founded in 1934, Cushman & Associates brings more than 80 years of removables expertise to G&H Dental Arts’ laboratories, and operated Buttress-Wilshire Dental Laboratory as a sister removables lab for more than a decade. Cushman technicians and support staff integrated into the G&H Dental Arts facility June 1, effectively combining both laboratories’ workflows.

“With Cushman’s impressive track record and long history of providing the Los Angeles area with premium dentures and partials, we couldn’t have asked for a lab more readymade to join with G&H Dental Arts’ operations,” said Glen Yamamoto, CDT, G&H Dental Arts owner/president. “We’re excited to begin providing expanded services to longtime Cushman doctors and integrate additional talented removables technicians into our operations.”

As a full-service dental lab providing fixed, removables and implant services to doctors since 1982, G&H Dental Arts seeks to provide doctors with a breadth of cutting-edge restorative options, including its Advanced Cosmetic Team, expert ceramists trained in cosmetic restorative techniques.
