Marisa and her brother, David, own Mobiltek Dental Lab in New York City. They previously acquired Accutec, also in New York, and changed their earlier mobile offering into a more traditional laboratory setting. In the process, Marisa, who only managed digital lab technology, has expanded her knowledge to the full range of dental laboratory services and problems solving. Two years into the transition, Marisa is not only managing all aspects of production, but also overseeing growth and expansion. Congratulations to Marisa on all her hard earned accomplishments.
