About Our Dental Lab
The name Baluke has represented quality dental fabrication since 1949. Mr. Walter Baluke Sr., co-founder of Shaw Laboratory, set a standard in progressive laboratory service that was revolutionary in its day. Duane and his brother Walter (Skip) followed in their father’s footsteps, first by working after school and on weekends, then as summer student trainees and finally as full-time apprentice technicians studying all phases of the dental laboratory business in Canada.
After their father’s retirement from the business, they set up their own dental laboratory in Ontario under the name of Baltor Dental Laboratory. Eventually this evolved into Baluke Dental Studios, now one of the leading full-service dental labs in Canada.

Baluke full service dental lab is your technology partner that stays up to date with regular research, staff training, and engagement with the industry.
Our internal programs ensure quality and consistency in our lab products and services. Baluke maintains its position as one of the best labs in Canada through:
- Development of products and services to improve existing options and offer innovative solutions.
- Continued education and development for all of our team.
- Equipment upgrades and rapid adoption of advanced laboratory technologies.
- Sourcing of materials through leaders like Amann Girrbach, Dentsply, and Ivoclar.
- Hiring only the most talented staff that can deliver exceptional results.
At Baluke we understand the important role that communication plays in beautiful smiles. Market studies and our own observations in the industry prove that the majority of remakes in the laboratory are caused by poor or insufficient communication.
Dentists communicate the requirements of their cases to us. Not every dentist is adept in the terminology or approach to the laboratory process, nor should they be. We understand this and work closely with our dental office clients to ensure that we understand the context of each case and have all of the information needed to progress to fabrication and other lab services. It’s our clear and targeted communication that results in the best outcomes for both practices and patients.
Our PARTNERS IN PRECISION (PIP) approach is something that all of our technicians and support staff adhere to. This program ensures that accurate and complete information is transferred between dental offices and our laboratory. A structured approach and attention to detail minimize costs and the time needed to develop solutions.
Premium case management ensures that every dental office has the necessary support to provide patients with the best service, regardless of the level of experience in the laboratory process. Baluke guides dental professionals to ensure that even the most complex cases are handled efficiently and with complete accuracy.
From reduction in chair time to superior outcomes and more beautiful smiles, Baluke can help dental offices to succeed with accurate restorations and patients that are absolutely delighted. Minimize remakes and adjustments with Baluke Dental Studios, Ontario’s leading full service dental lab.
