Section 2. Dental laboratories are the retailers of the plates, inlays, and any other products which they manufacture for dentists or other consumers. Tax shall apply to their entire charges for such products sold at retail regardless of whether the materials and services are separately stated.

Repairers of a dental prosthesis shall pay sales and use tax on the purchase of all parts and materials used in its repair.
