History

Walter BalukeThe name Baluke has represented quality dental fabrication since 1949. Mr. Walter Baluke Sr., co-founder of Shaw Laboratory, set a standard in progressive laboratory service that was revolutionary in its day. Duane and his brother Walter (Skip) followed in their father’s footsteps, first by working after school and on weekends, then as summer student trainees and finally as full-time apprentice technicians studying all phases of the dental laboratory business. After their father’s retirement from the business, they set up their own laboratory under the name of Baltor Dental Laboratory. Eventually this evolved into Baluke Dental Studios.

From the onset, they worked avidly at research and development to keep on the forefront of dental technology. Baluke’s mandate has always been to maintain or exceed established standards of excellence for dental laboratory fabrications and to work only with high quality materials and established, reputable suppliers and manufacturers. This dedication and attention to detail has allowed Baluke to provide a five-year pro-rated warranty.

Baluke Dental Studios has attracted discerning dentists because of its dedication to quality. Their reputation has fostered an expansion into all of Ontario, parts of Quebec and selected cities across the globe. Through involvement with the leading dental societies and organizations, Baluke Dental Studios has become a sought after source of advice and laboratory acumen. So much so, that they are now preferred research partners with many of the leading dental manufacturers in North America and serve as the test lab for some of the leading names in the business.
