If you’re the right person, we can teach you everything you need to know to be a successful dental technician. If you want to contribute to bringing more SMILES to the world, you might be right for us! WHO WE ARE: As a dental lab, we work closely with dentists who, like us, want the very best for their patients. Since 1979 we’ve created high quality, custom dental restorations using the very latest materials, techniques and technology, including CAD/CAM and 3DPrinting. Our passion for finding a custom approach for each patient and each situation means we are never satisfied until both the patient and dentist are completely happy.

You intuitively know how things fit together and you can see precisely what needs to be done to make something perfect. You understand the nuance of objects, like space, color, and composition. You possess a relentless attention to detail, and you are passionate about doing it right the first time. When things break down, you don’t get flustered. Instead, you jump in to find the solution. You are both patient and self-motivated. You can handle multiple projects at the same time, organizing them into the most efficient workload, moving on to the next step without being told. You are a team-player who understands that others depend on your competence and timeliness.
