Perfit Dental Solutions

perfit logoPerfit Dental Solutions was started by two dynamic young entrepreneur brothers Steve and George Cowburn. Steve and George were previously in the dental lab business for 7 years in Calgary, sold the company and moved to the Okanagan to further develop and commercialize the technology innovations and patents that they had developed.

In February of 2016, Perfit Dental Solutions released the world’s first fully digital denture where a patient’s mouth was scanned using an intra-oral scanner, and the denture was digitally designed and milled. What once took hours of labour over a day or two is now possible in less than two hours. Their company revenues have continued to grow, have raised considerable investment capital and developed strong market interest across Canada.perfit mill

Community Futures has helped fund the company scale up with more milling equipment, larger facilities and additional working capital to help meet the demand on the denture milling side of the business.

The Perfit of tomorrow is accelerating quickly and world class team continues to impress. Using software and equipment, Perfit R&D team is succeeding by decreasing the material costs and labour costs associated with production while increasing its product offering to include partial dentures and milling software while decreasing the complexity of delivering the solutions so milling can be de-centralized and increasing the scalability of their solutions.
