I joined the Air Force in 1978 and received my laboratory training in the Air Force. I had many great assignments culminating my 28 year career as the most senior lab technician in the Air Force. As many know, we did mostly fixed work in the Air Force, consequently I did not make many dentures. After I retired, I ended up working as an in-house technician for a Prosthodontist doing removable work, specializing in implants. I have always loved the laboratory career field, but became even more passionate when I started making dentures. I have met some superb people in this field who have helped me grow, which only fuels my passion for making even better prostheses. Currently, I'm enjoying the time of my life doing what I do and loving every day of it. I only wish the same for you.
