Lossof a great lab owner/founder here in NJ: Yesterday Sam Fields,founder of Sam Fields Dental Lab passed away. He is father of owners Bob & Rick Fields. Sam was a great inspiration to me countless(!) years ago when he introduced me to the 'DLC' conferences that he got me into (was tough traveling to places like Cancun & Haaii!) and introduced me to the innovative laboratory giants of the industry,where I learned much from and gained much ambition & insights from.
Sam was a great person & leader, and all my sympathies go to his family & friends.
