All On X


We have a fully digital CADCAM suite, ready to accept files from 3Shape Trios, Dentsply Connect, iTero and more!


Crown and Bridge

We have a dedicated ceramist who has been handpicked for their ability to create lifelike natural teeth. All our crowns are digitally designed to reduce human error and then brought to life by hand.

Crown and Bridge


We are currently the reigning Best Implant Laboratory in the UK. We grew out of one of the biggest private implant practices in the UK and have a strong affiliation with all well-known implant systems.


Shade Taking

We have a dedicated photography suite where a shade can be taken by a dental technician who has trained to the full extent of their scope of practice with qualifications from the KSS Deanery College of Surgeons.

Shade Taking


All our dentures have gingiva characterisation (where clinically appropriate) as a standard and our technicians are on hand to pop to your practice if you live locally to discuss the final denture and make sure you and the patient are happy with the result.

Our Journey

The Hive Dental Laboratory is the brainchild of our Laboratory Director, Emily Pittard. Having worked in dentistry for over 12 years she decided that she wanted to develop a dental laboratory that offered a new, transparent alternative to traditional working methods.

Our laboratory works directly with dentists and patients alike to bridge the gap between aspirations and reality. We are always onsite at our laboratory in the centre of Poole, Dorset. Open from Monday to Friday onsite and 24/7 for repairs, we are growing rapidly.

Speech Marks

“All I can say is wow Emily. The denture you made is by far the best denture I’ve seen and fitted. You’re extremely talented. Both my patient and I are really grateful.

Thank you so much.”

Dr N Kunapalasingham

Speech Marks

“I initially started working with Emily about 5 years ago and now I use her for almost all my work. My patients love her, her attention to detail is second-to-none and to find a technician who can do prosthetics, crown & bridge and implant work well is very rare!”

Dr P McCauley

Speech Marks

“Our patient was in tears… she has dementia and attends with her daughter who looks after her. You made her day.”

Dr Sade Marlene

Speech Marks
