A Company You Can Depend On

Lares Research was founded in 1956 by my father Joe Lares and uncle Al Lares. I joined the company in 1979 and have served as President since 1986. I am very proud of the continuity that two generations of Lares family ownership and a highly dedicated team of employees has provided our customers and suppliers for the past 60 years.

Lares Research designs, manufactures and distributes handpieces of exceptional quality, precision and value. But even more importantly, Lares strives to support its dentist and distributor customers worldwide with a level of service that is unmatched in our industry. Lares competes constantly on the various aspects of turbine features and performance. But when it comes to service, the Lares team beats the competition every day.

It will be our great pleasure to serve you and to earn your trust.
Welcome to Lares Research!

Manufacturing Handpieces Sustainably With Solar Power

On August 19, 2016, Lares Research activated its new 238 kW roof top solar power generation system, bolstering its efforts to manufacture its dental handpieces sustainably. Consisting of 728 solar panels, the system is designed to generate enough power to provide 78% of the Lares 30,000 square foot factory’s annual power consumption.

Craig Lares, President, said: “We are proud to have dramatically reduced our carbon footprint while still manufacturing the highest quality dental handpieces available.”
