Tra' Chambers, President of Express Dental Laboratory, Norman, Okla., earned a bachelor of science degree in biology with an emphasis in biotechnology in 2008 from Brigham Young University-Idaho. He then returned home to Oklahoma to enter the workforce and explore his interest in dentistry. He was approached by a dentist to help start a private dental practice. From 2009-2012, he helped grow the practice from just two operatories into a multi-location practice with three clinicians and 15 operatories.
