Chris Bradley is the CEO and owner of Smile Line USA, Inc. She started the company in February of 2008 as the exclusive distributor of Smile Line products in USA and Canada. The company continues to stay at the forefront of innovation providing high quality unique dental laboratory and clinical products to enhance the daily work of the dental artist.
Chris holds a Bachelors of Science degree in Chemistry from Colorado State University and a Masters in Business Administration from University of Colorado at Denver. Her first professional position was as a Product Engineer in industrial ceramics at Coors Ceramics in Golden, CO. She worked in zirconia and alumina development, specifically in the biomedical division. Beginning in April 1997, she joined Vident as an outside sales representative in the dental industry. After four years of sales at Vident and three boys later (now 22, 20, & 18), she was hired to manage the Colorado Dental Laboratory Association, a position with an at home office. Here Chris learned all of the other facets of the dental laboratory industry; education, vendors, key opinion leaders, and planning a dental laboratory meeting. Those ten years provided excellent training and expertise while establishing amazing connections. During that time, an opportunity to start Smile Line USA happened and it has been non stop fun ever since.
Chris Bradley can be found somewhere in the Colorado Rocky Mountains fishing, canoeing, hiking, biking, skiing, paddle boarding, or just enjoying God's country in her free time.
