Owner: Ron Humphrey
It’s a crisp winter day and the sun is shining on Cougar Mountain in Issaquah, WA…just another day of spectacular views for the staff at Northwest Dental Arts. The second-floor boutique lab features an open floor plan with huge windows on all sides. All eight employees have a view of Cougar Mountain including the deer, bobcats and many varieties of birds that live there, as well as Poo Poo Point, a popular take-off spot for hang gliders. Technicians sit at custom maple workbenches designed by Owner Ron Humphrey and a contractor, and clear Plexiglas shelves keep the view unobstructed. “My employees are the backbone of this lab,” says Humphrey. “They spend eight to nine hours a day here and I wanted to create an atmosphere of which they can feel proud.”
