This week brings the amazing story of Edgar Munoz. Edgar played baseball and had dreams of going professional. A couple of bad knees later and Edgar had to rethink his life. Luckily for our industry and thousands of patients, Edgar stumbled into dental technology. Opening his own lab in his garage and a lot of hard work, Edgar is now the owner of Elite Dental Studios. Partnering with Noritake to teach ceramics, Edgar comes on to talk about his tale and the lessons he has learned along the way.
