I have had the pleasure over the last seven years to collaborate with Protea Dental Studio. I was previously having problems finding a lab that was consistent and had good customer support. I was introduced to the owner, Leon, at a meeting and began sending cases. All I can say is that I wish I had found them sooner. I use them from single unit cases to full mouth rehabilitations and implant restorations. They are detail oriented and it shows in the beautiful final restorations. Delivery appointments are stress free now. They have been a great resource and very easy to communicate with, as we plan the best materials and treatment options for our patients. Their customer service is second to none. I would highly recommend Protea Dental Studio to anyone looking for a lab partner to provide predictable, high quality results for their patients.

Protea Dental Studio exceeds my expectations in each and every department. Their communication is pleasant, informative and efficient and the artistry of every prosthesis is breath taking yet predictable.  Leon’s expertise and accessibility is refreshing and takes you to a new level of dentist-ceramist relationship. 

I am wholeheartedly grateful to Leon and his talented team for the excellence and consistency they deliver. It has enriched my professional life with peace and confidence. Their beautiful work rewards us with an abundance of compliments from our demanding patients and my specialists as well.

Working with the Protea team for over 10 years is a true blessing.

Thank you from our team and our grateful patients!

Passion fuels our success and is contagious.   Leon is passionate about dentistry.  Since I have started working with Leon and Protea Dental Studio, I have improved my skills and knowledge as well as finding joy and enthusiasm in comprehensive dentistry.   I have spent thousands of dollars on my continuing education but, for many years, I was unable to fully perform at the level that I was trained for.  Trusting that we will deliver the best dentistry based on skills, sciences, ethics and open communication has been very valuable.

Dr. Alison Han, DMD


I recommend working with Protea Dental as an opportunity for any dentist to extend their capability beyond those obtained in the support system of the traditional laboratory environment.  Leon has become a much more value adjunct to the care of individuals through his expanded judgment and skill level.  He’s maintained himself on the cutting edge of technology within the confines of the needs of predictability.

I can’t thank you enough for my new smile!  No one can tell my front six teeth aren’t naturally mine.  You designed the smile I should have been born with.  I can finally smile without worrying about what people think of my teeth and know they are focusing on me!

Christy L., Patient

My dentist recently crowned my maxillary left first biscupid.  I was stunned when he placed Protea’s finished crown in my hand, as it was absolutely outstanding.  It was almost as if a beautiful and perfect natural tooth had somehow been transformed into a laboratory crown.  Even upon close examination, it was impossible to tell that the porcelain portion was not a real tooth.  It fit perfectly and my dentist was able to quickly send me on my way.  I commend and thank everyone involved for the dedication and excellent work.

Dr. Tom E., DDS

Thank you so much for all your time and expertise.  I love my two front teeth…great color, great shape!  I really appreciate your patience and understanding how important it was to me!!  I enjoyed working with you.

Leon and Protea haven’t just exceeded my expectations but have provided me with the single most satisfying experience in my dental career… seating a perfect set of crowns. I have never experienced perfect contacts and occlusion on a full-mouth rehabilitation until now. Leon and his team have a refreshingly high set of ethical and professional standards that makes working with Leon a highlight of my day. Such exceptional lab support has made me realize that Protea is a true and equal partner on par with the dentists in my specialty network.

I am a prosthodontist in Puyallup and Clinical Instructor at the Kois Center. I have worked with several different restorative labs over the years. Protea Dental Studio is by far the best lab I have used. The fit, contacts, occlusion, and shade match are clearly superior to the outcomes of other labs. I highly recommend using Protea. Patients are amazed at the feel and esthetics. I love their cases.

These guys rock! Best dental lab ever for high end cosmetics and whatever else you want.

My patient was thrilled with her #8 and 9. I got hugs, my assistant got hugs, she hugged everyone in the office afterwards. 🙂 Needless to say I love getting hugs! And, she is now in Hawaii with her 2 kids taking lots of photos. Everything went perfect.

I expect excellence in the clinical results we achieve for our patients – and Protea is an integral part of making that consistent and predictable.  The knowledge and expertise their team provides me is invaluable, all the way from treatment planning to final delivery.  Leon has gone above and beyond in helping me understand and implement the Kois Center protocols.  We’ve worked together long enough that they usually know what I need without even getting specifics from me.  I can’t imagine having to train a new lab to do all the things the Protea team does for us on a routine basis.  If you want to work with the best, this is your opportunity.

I was introduced to Leon in 2014 by a fine dentist whom I highly respected. Little did I know that this introduction would change the trajectory of my dentistry and practice.  His knowledge of Kois protocols and the systems he has in place has produced predictability in both routine and large complex cases.  Leon and the Protea team are the finest dental lab I have worked with in my 32 years of dentistry. Working with them the past six years has helped me take the dentistry that I deliver to another level. The results have consistently met even my high expectations functionally and esthetically while often being life changing for our patients. Above all Leon and Protea go above and beyond in their level of service and always with the highest degree of integrity.

Where do I start? Leon’s work is absolutely AMAZING! My assistant was shocked how beautiful all of the crowns went in on a full restoration case. We didn’t touch them and the margins were flawless. He has a true passion for what he does and his artistry shows in his work. He is ALWAYS there to help answer questions as well. The finest dental lab there is by far!
