About Us

What Sets Us Apart

Excellence Without Compromise

Protea Dental Studio is a specialized service dental laboratory founded by Leon Hermanides, CDT, to provide fixed prosthetics for dentists and their patients who are seeking comprehensive restorative dental solutions. As a Kois-trained laboratory, we follow principles taught by Dr. John Kois at The Kois Center in Seattle, WA. We work with distinguished restorative dentists across North America, and we also enjoy working regularly with dentists who incorporate the Kois principles into their clinical protocols.

Each of the highly trained technicians at Protea Dental Studio understands that there is a real person whose life will be impacted by the work we deliver. The hallmark of our efforts is represented by the personal attention our clients receive. It is our commitment to understand the expectations held by both you and your patients; within that relationship, we can ensure that you receive consistent and predictable restorations that reflect positively on you and your practice.

Protea standards are defined and reflected in each restoration we create. Each member of our team holds him or herself to those non-negotiable standards at each step in the process. A series of quality control checks against those standards give you confidence in the product you receive.  Our ability to marry esthetics and function – while addressing each patient’s clinical challenges and limitations – ensures that even the most difficult cases will receive the expertise and attention they require. 

What can you expect from us? Clear paths of communication. On-time delivery – every time. Priority pre-scheduling of your cases to minimize the gap between prep and impressions and delivery – faster turnaround means better results. Guaranteed results – we will make it right every time.  Our goal is your goal: seamless transition from what is to what will be while ensuring that the creative process is trouble-free, convenient and predictable. 

Extraordinary esthetics, individualized solutions, precise results, and life-changing outcomes.


I just wanted to send you all an e-mail thanking you for the great job, as always, on (my patient’s) case.  The case was delivered yesterday and the pt was very happy.  It required very little adjustment.  Thanks for all you do.

Dr Christopher Huff
