Dye & Golze Dental Laboratory is a dental laboratory established by Matt Dye and Chris Golze in 2007. After working together since 1996, we decided it was time to start our own laboratory to give
us the opportunity to grow as a business and develop our own products offering people the very best dental appliances.
Born from this is XSGUARD Mouthguards. A product developed over many years to help protect athletes from the dangers they may encounter whilst competing in their chosen sport.
The laboratory is registered with the MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) and DLA (Dental Laboratories Association). We have DAMAS (Dental Appliance Manufacturers Audit Scheme) accreditation and are registered to use the British Bite Mark. We as individuals are also registered with the GDC (General Dental Council) and the DTA (Dental Technologists Association).
DAMAS (Dental Appliance Manufacturers Audit Scheme)
DAMAS is a quality management system designed specifically for the manufacturers of custom made dental appliances.
It is the most commonly used annually inspected quality system within the dental laboratory industry that provides a framework for an effective quality management system which enables dental
laboratories to prove to their clients that they are operating within the law (Medical Devices Regulations MDR).
DAMAS is more than just a quality control mechanism. It encompasses control beyond just inspection and testing and requires a structured approach to prevention of quality problems through planned activities that include reviews, monitoring and documentation.
DAMAS provides laboratories with a set of processes that ensure a common sense approach to the management of the organisation. The system ensures consistency and improvement of working practices, which in turn should provide products and services that meet customer's requirements.
