Doctor Testimonials

"I have had the pleasure of working with Fred Hupp for over 10 years. Hupp Dental consistently delivers exceptional removable prosthetics requiring minimal adjustments. He possesses an excellent technical background which he openly shares and cases are delivered on time without exception. His attention to detail and grasp of esthetics is something I have found lacking in other removable labs and Fred is always willing to meet with the patients in office to facilitate completion of challenging cases. I highly recommend Fred Hupp and am confident that any dentist will be well satisfied with his quality prosthetics at reasonable fees. I can be reached on my cell @ 602-550-1018 for further comments."

Dr. Gary Oreskovich, DDS,  Phoenix, Arizona


"Hupp Dental Lab is outstanding. They continue to exceed my office needs for quality craftsmanship and excellent customer service.  They routinely have our prescriptions back before the due date, and I usually have little to no adjustments.  I have used several labs for removable prosthetics over the years.  Hupp Dental Lab is the only one I use today."

 Fred Hupp, CDT - Bio

Balancing a desire for artistic expression with technical precision puts Fred in an ideal position for creating aesthetic dental restorations. Starting his career in Southern California, graduating top of his class at Southland College for Medical and Dental Carrier, he immediately took a job in Santa Monica working as a Crown and Bridge and Ceramist Technician, this was an office that catered to the movie stars and athletes.

Fred opened up his first full service dental lab in Redondo Beach, CA. while furthering his education. When an opportunity came up to have hands-on experience, he would take it. He would spend the next several years doing lab work, assisting chair side with surgeries, preparing teeth and taking impressions.

Though carrying a full workload, Fred continued to push his own education including traveling across the USA working in labs and doing work for private practices. He finally settled in Sarasota, FLA. where he rented a space from a Prosthodontist and did all of his work.

As Fred continued his full time work he began taking on special projects for certain doctors, and before he knew it he had several clients wanting his attention, time, and skills all for their own.

Today Fred has put together a small team of veteran technicians. Serving Phoenix and Casa Grandes elite Dentists, Fred caters to the specific needs of his Doctors and their patients. Hupp Dental Lab, known for excellent aesthetic restorative creations is eager to get involved with clients who have the same goals in mind – great dentistry!
