What is DAMAS?
DAMAS is the Dental Appliance Manufacturer Audit System. The dental laboratory is a crucial element of the delivery of quality dental care.
The requirements set forth in DAMAS are based upon the sound quality system management principles specified in ISO, but are geared specifically for the dental laboratory setting.
The DAMAS specifications provide a clear-cut process for improving documentation in every facet of laboratory operations including: dental prescriptions/work authorizations; patient contact materials; subcontractor/supplier agreements; material and equipment purchases; employee training; maintenance and calibration of equipment; labeling; customer complaints; and material traceability.
The standards required by DAMAS closely mirror the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Quality System/Good Manufacturing Practice (QS/GMP) specifications, which are required of all dental laboratories conducting business in the United States.
The DAMAS certification sets Ziemek Laboratories apart with a small group of elite dental laboratories in the US and ensures that we are providing our dental clients with the highest level of customer service and quality.
