About Us

Mabel Dental Lab, located in Akron, Ohio, is a full service dental laboratory that helps dentists of all sizes increase their profit without sacrificing quality. We are a family owned dental laboratory founded in 2010 by a dentist with over 40 years of experience and his eldest son. We provide consistent quality, affordable and timely restorations with personalized service to help you retain and attract patients. We specialize in using advanced CAD/CAM technology and offer crown & bridge products featuring IPS e.max® Press, Full Zirconia, PFMs, implants and more. We also provide high quality Removables such as full dentures, metal partials, flexible partials and overdentures. We realize that you and your patient’s time is valuable, so we take that into account with everything that we do. Our goal is to reduce your chair-time, eliminate patient rescheduling and increase your profit without sacrificing quality.

Service Philosophy
We pride ourselves on providing you with consistent quality and turnaround times while tailoring our communication to meet your needs. We accomplish this by providing personalized service and unparalleled support rarely seen in the lab industry. We keep you informed at every step of your case from the time it is received, to when it’s completed. Our communication is specifically tailored to meet your needs and busy schedule. So if you prefer to communicate with us by email or phone, our state of the art CRM software will track your preferences. However we don’t stop at your communication preferences, we can also keep all of your specific case preferences. If you want tight contacts on crowns or ideal set-ups on your denture cases, we can do that! We also use and encourage digital images to review cases with you and your patients. We want our lab to have a family feel and so we treat our employees and customers the same way. At Mabel Dental Lab we don’t view you as just another customer but rather as a partner, a “Smile Partner“.

Why the name MABEL for your dental lab?
One of the most common questions that we get asked is how we came up with the name “Mabel” for our dental lab. Well, it’s the first initial of all of our co-owner Dr. Jaffe’s children’s first names…
M – Madison
A – Adam
B – Blake
E – Evan
L – Lucky


Our Team

Our CEO, Evan Jaffe, MBA, took a very unique path to the dental laboratory. Born and raised in a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio, the oldest of 5 children, he received his undergraduate degree in Risk Management/Insurance from The Ohio State University. He then completed his MBA from Cleveland State University. After spending over a decade in management for several Fortune 500 Companies (Progressive Insurance, NY Life Insurance) with a strong focus on customer service, innovation, quality, productivity and customer retention he opened Mabel Dental Lab in 2010 with his father Dr. Sam Jaffe. Evan then received formal dental technology training specializing in Removables in Buffalo, NY. Today, Evan focuses on ensuring the complete satisfaction for every one of our Smile Partners and oversees our day to day operations.

Our President, Dr. Sam Jaffe was the founder, owner and operator of American Dental Centers for over 35 years. He is credited as a trendsetter in the dental industry operating as many as 23 offices at one time and has been cited in numerous publications including the Wall Street Journal. He attended the Ohio State University for both undergraduate and dental school and has been practicing dentistry for over 40 years! Mabel Dental lab is one of the few dental laboratories who boasts a licensed dentist as a co-owner. With Dr. Jaffe on board he brings a unique perspective and knowledge base to our dental lab that helps influence many of the decisions that we make. It is invaluable to have a dentist of his caliber at our disposal since he knows first-hand the trials and tribulations of today’s dentist.

Add it all up and all of our combined experiences have enabled our laboratory to provide high quality restorations at price levels for all types of offices without sacrificing quality. We work with large DSO’s, multi-office practices as well as the single private practice office.

We look forward to serving you and your patients and becoming your Smile Partner!
