Letter from the Founder

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. I hope you find it informative and helpful.

As many in the dental industry know, I was a dentist working for the Captek Company for about 7 years. I was part of a team that worked with the 50 largest labs in the country. Before that, I was a sole practitioner for 26 years who always worked with a small dental laboratory. I needed those relationships and valued them greatly. It was those long-term relationships that served as the basis for launching OPT-In Dental Laboratory Cooperative.

One of the things I liked about working directly with a laboratory owner was that I always knew who I needed to speak to. If I needed something special or out of the ordinary, I knew the conversation wouldn’t be lost. If I needed help, I knew I was working with the top guy who was highly experienced and had a personal stake in my success and me as a customer. Equally important, I knew that after a couple of months I wasn’t going to be dissappointed by having my cases passed off to a lesser technician.

With an OPT-In laboratory, dentists have the opportunity to embrace the value of a close laboratory relationship in new and more productive ways.

Thank you for visiting. I hope to hear from you soon.
