In-house ceramist, implant tech, AS degree in Dental Technology, 25 year CDT, Dept. head fixed prosthetics, San Francisco, CA. Started in a good quality denture lab, then spent the past 27 years working for prothodontists in in-house labs. Specialize in full-contour waxing, e.max Press crowns and bridges, implant custom abutments and single units, and full-arch titanium implant bridges layered with hybrid porcelain material (e.g. Estenia by Kuraray). Enjoy macro photography of step by step lab work, etc. Busy full-time for most of past years, but the office is hurting for patients, leaving the lab with little work at present (Oct. 4, 2013). Looking to take in work from outside dentists.
