Ocean Ceramics is a family business that started over 45 years ago. Two dental technicians, Chris and Gisela Neuber, immigrated to Canada from Germany with BIG dreams and a work ethic that was second to none. Gisela Neuber was the first ceramist in the Pacific Northwest to fire porcelain onto metal and worked out all the shortfalls of this new Ceramco crown technology. Chris and Gisela’s partnership and strong marriage was the foundation that created a sense of family that their doctor clients loved and a foundation for their sons David and James Neuber to grow the lab to where it is today.
Using the knowledge passed down through the generation before them, David and James created a world class level dental laboratory and were the first to provide their clients with “Adjustment Free Prosthetics” with analogue or digital impressions. They created a competitive price point for their customers no matter how high the esthetic bar, and economy pricing for simple posterior restorations. With this diverse service, doctors that consider “in-office milling” quickly realize the return on investment simply does not justify the capital investment!
Ocean has two sister entities that compliment their full-service lab with a world class dental education, DENTA4, helping dentists learn a stomatognathic system to restore not just teeth, but their patient’s physiology (Airway, Jaw Joint, and Muscles). This will assure the maximum life of the prosthetics provided avoiding the destructive biomechanical forces that the patient has evolved to, and correct it before restoring teeth to an already sick or compromised physiology. Ocean Ceramic’s sister company, Trio Creations, is a Zenith DMG distributor that promotes only the products that contribute to, and enhance the services provided by Ocean. Trio Creations carries impression material, cements, temporary material, and much more.
Today this family business works like a strong family, trusting God is ultimately in control of their blessings and fate. David and James Neuber’s career goals are to elevate DENTA4 and Ocean Ceramics dental philosophies to a world awareness level. They also aim to set a new standard to benefit dental professionals in achieving the maximum life of prosthetics, while maximizing the quality and length of life for the patients they serve.
