Our laboratory is an owner run business established in the UK in 1998 by Raoul Stocchi whose roots began in South Africa. The son of Italian parents, Raoul started as an apprentice in 1968 after leaving school and then settled into his career as a Dental Technician with a company called Schoenitz Dental. The laboratory was owned by Jurgen Schoenitz who had opened the lab in 1957 and was one of the first laboratories to start ceramics in South Africa. Raoul was fortunate to have been able to master his technique at Schoenitz which gave him the grounding required across all aspects of dental technology. After Jurgen Schoenitz retired, Raoul took over the company and continued to invest in staff and equipment to grow it into one of the leading laboratories in South Africa.
Raoul moved to the UK in 1998 along with colleague Jonny Won and founded a new home for Schoenitz Dental Laboratory.
“I am very proud after all these years to be able to continue to run my lab with an incredibly dedicated team some of whom have been with me for more than 24 years.”
SDL Technicians take immense pride in their work and strive to satisfy clients with high quality workmanship and excellent customer service. We continuously attend seminars and courses to ensure we remain at the forefront of new technology and dental development.
