It is with great sadness that we must share news of the passing of Arlo King, CDT and Director of Technical Services for DENTSPLY Prosthetics. Arlo was well-known, -liked and -respected throughout the dental industry as the face and leader of DENTSPLY's laboratory technical support services. Those who knew Arlo were acutely aware of his love of the trade and strong loyalty to DENTSPLY. It was Arlo's goal to get better so he could get back to work. As he stated it in a recent text message, "I just can't go to work, so I am going to work from home."
Arlo joined DENTSPLY Ceramco in 1992 at the close of his 20-year U.S. Air Force military career. It was in the military where Arlo gained his training as a dental laboratory technician and launched his dental career. The influence of his military background was apparent in Arlo's can-do, get-it-done attitude. You could always count on his no-nonsense, honest opinion.
Those who knew Arlo were familiar with his great sense of humor and infectious...
