We have established relationships with a credit union,a merchant card service and a credit reporting bureau. We offer educational workshops, clinics, and seminars throughout the state. These seminars specifically educate and train the Laboratory Owner. In addition, we provide technical programs to educate and train the entire laboratory staff. Members can also take advantage of peer to peer networking at various meetings and social events. The Mission of DLOAC, since 1941, is to promote the image of dental laboratory owners, to provide for their professional development and welfare, and to enhance the public's dental health.
Overall, laboratory owners' sentiments on the topic of offshoring are still split; 55%, up from 31% in 2005, feel it's un-American and unfair to their employees, and another 30% say it's just part of the globalization of our economy.
