Robert S Wisler CDT - Owned and operated Alpha Dental Studio in Michigan, a Certified Dental Laboratory, for 30 years. He graduated from Ferris State University's Dental Technology program in '79 and became a CDT in '82.
He spent the first 10 years of his career as an 'In-House' technician for three general dentists that specialized in crown and bridge and implants. During this time, specific techniques were developed, through the use of microscopes, chair side assistance and a meticulous attention to detail, to allow for precision restorations to be placed predictably. Alpha's continued success was achieved in 2002 with a staff of 15 in a new state-of-the-art Kavo and CAD/CAM equipped laboratory. Each technician was PTC trained and fabricated each restoration using magnification. Excellent fit, function and aesthetics and the ability for Drs. to use the labs fully functional dental operatory were the hallmark of Alpha's reputation for implants and veneers.
Robert is a student of occlusion based in the OBI and Kois disciplines; a member of the AACD, AAIP, Cal-Lab, NADL, Lab Consultant for The Dental Advisor and he has enhanced quality systems in the lab through DAMAS and ISO certifications. A foundation of dentist/technician communication and microscopically fabricated restorations differentiated his Drs experiences to something exceptional. Promoting continuing education for his technical team, hosting seminars for dentists, writing articles, lecturing around the country and speaking to students at local dental schools, allowed Robert to share his passion for excellence in Dental Technology.
Since closing Alpha in the fall of '09, life and the Dental Technology experience have been filled with great variety. During the next two years, Robert had the opportunity to teach and train two large technical teams in China. Consistent production was achieved through the development of a Quality Control checklist in each department, enforcement of specific protocols and education as to the importance of quality materials and their proper uses. After moving his family to Phoenix in 2010 opportunities arose as Technical Advisor, Product Development, Consultant & Laboratory Program Manager for several large labs & manufacturers in New York, Michigan & Arizona. Robert joined TravelFlo Group in 2015 as Business Development Manager for labs across North America.

All go to create a winning strategy in each situations. Robert works and travels from his home in Cave Creek, Arizona.
