Learn More About Our Story

Stern Empire was originally founded in 1910 by Max Scholl, and at that time was called Scholl Dental Laboratory. The Stern brothers purchased Scholl Dental Lab in 1949 and changed the name to Stern Dental Laboratory. In 1969, Stern Dental Laboratory merged with one of their biggest competitors, Empire Dental Lab and became Stern Empire Dental Lab. In 1984, we rebranded our lab as NDX Stern Empire when we became a division of National Dentex Corporation (NDX) - one of the largest networks of dental laboratories in the country.

NDX Stern Empire has grown steadily to become a leading national laboratory serving dentists in all 50 states. Although the vulcanite dentures we produced back in the early 1900’s are long gone, the same dedication to helping dentists achieve success has endured.

Dentists can count on NDX Stern Empire for the latest in monolithic ceramic restorations, complex dental implant prosthetics, functional orthodontic appliances and much more.
