Christ Follower / Husband / Dad / Technician / Businessman
Since my introduction to dental technology in 1965, I have had the opportunity to participate in many facets of the profession. I have been a denture technician, a CDT, a sole proprietor of a one-man denture lab, the head of a five-person denture department, a salesman, a regional marketing manager for a laboratory "chain", a trouble shooter for a laboratory corporation, a crown and bridge technician, and a general partner (now sole owner) of a multi-person fixed restorative laboratory. I also have a growing "home business" that consists of productivity, communication, operational systems and marketing services for dental laboratories.
The Daily Bite
One of the misconceptions about home-based labs is that the owners never stop working. On the contrary, nearly half of surveyed home-based lab owners say they work fewer hours because their lab is located in the house. In fact, they work about six hours less per week than their non-home-based counterparts.
