About Mountain Vista Ortho Lab       

  Mountain Vista Ortho Lab has been in existence since February of 1985.  Our approach to appliance fabrication and our warrantee and guarantee have been tested over time and we firmly believe that they are fair to both the Lab and our Dentist Clients. These procedures of Mountain Vista Ortho have been developed over the past 27 years, in response to real life situations and challenges.

As a professional dental laboratory, we understand the need for fair pricing, consistency and timeliness. 

  • The same technicians work on the cases sent by you, as our work force is very stable.  We will create a design sheet for you as a Dentist-client, if you should wish.
  • We hold to a "five work day in the lab" schedule.  This information is important for you and us both. Only in extraordinary circumstances will this production schedule change.  In that event, we will inform you immediately when this change is necessary.
