    A dental lab is where they do all the crowns, dentures,... basically all the behind the scenes stuff.

    As for a dental clinic, I suppose it could be a regular dental office. But when I mentioned that I volunteered at a clinic in my last post, I meant a community clinic which offers free services for those who qualify. There's most likely one in your area.

    i know pebs already stated this but the lab processes your dental work. using a lab is a cost effective way of running a practice you pay them to cast your crowns and process your dentures. the that you would have spent doing it yourself can be spent seeing more patients.
    a dental clinic is similar to a medical clinic. it generally refers to several dentist seeing patients in one facility as oppose to ans office that has one dentist.
