About this Episode

Do you know a technician that just started? Working in the model room or opaquing crowns? That person could be the next CEO of a global network of labs. We welcome Laura Kelly who had a similar story. She started at Microdental Laboratories not knowing what a dental lab was and has worked hard to become it's CEO. Along they way she became the first female and the first technician to be the president of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) and owned her own lab that grew to be purchased by another lab group. She talks about what MicroDental stands for, how they dealt with the pandemic shutdown, and how they came out of it strong.
