 A new era in dental technology commenced when Central Dental Laboratories became Image Dental Laboratory in 2006. Created from the combined vision of husband and wife team Jennifer Fowler and Ali Khonsari, they sought to build on the guiding principles of quality, consistency, and communication established by Mr. Eric Fowler, Jennifer’s father, when he founded Central Dental Laboratories in 1967. 

The mandate has always been to work exclusively with well-respected suppliers and manufacturers in order to obtain the highest quality materials. The laboratory set a standard for delivering products that exceeded client expectation. Today, Image Dental Laboratory continues these traditions of attention to detail and dedication to the needs of its clients. The revolutionary laboratory facilitates the process of knowledge sharing which not only benefits the skilled technicians, but also the doctors, their teams, and, ultimately, the patients. The objective for the next 45 years is to continue to be leaders in the industry by providing only the highest quality products—dental implants, dentures, veneers, sleep appliances, etc.—and to stay on the forefront of technological advancements while ensuring clients receive the superior service they deserve.

Ali Khonsari and Jennifer Fowler, the husband and wife team that own Image Dental Laboratory, are very active in the Barrie community. They personally participate in a wide variety of local events that help boost community programs by sponsorships and donations to organizations like the Children’s Aid Society of Simcoe County, The Royal Victoria Hospital, and Georgian College.
