I have a Associate Degree in Dental Technology/ Allied Health Science graduating in 1984. I worked in a commercial lab for 22 yrs learning all phases of removeables. I decided to open my own lab in 1996 and have been enjoying every aspect of being a lab owner, specifically the rewards of seeing patient and Dr pleased.
In 2005, there were approximately 11,250 labs in the U.S.; today, there are about 8,100 (including in-house labs). There’s been the most dramatic attrition in Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas and Mississippi which are down by an average of 25%.
