My name is Ken Becker. I was introduced to the dental lab industry by my father Don Becker, and have been blessed to work with my father and two very talented brothers at Becker Dental Lab, in business since 1996. We have since grown to employ 21 great people. My carrier started out at Keller Dental Laboratory where I cleaned flasks, changed plaster traps, took out trash and eventually worked my way up to model work. I attended college for dental technology at Triton college in River Grove Illinois where I earned an associates degree in applied sciences in '96. While in college I was employed by 4 other laboratories each of which gave me new skills and perspectives which I have attributed to my abilities today. I have been a CDT since 1997. I am proud to be among this fascinating community of dental technicians.
