January 3, 2011 – Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania – Greg Thayer, CDT, FICOI, President of Thayer Dental Laboratory, a Certified Dental Laboratory, announced that the company set a new sales record in 2010. The sales record surpassed the previous sales record from 2006, and is the highest sales achieved in the laboratory’s 34 year history. Thayer felt that this was a real coup given the fact that the laboratory has not raised prices in four years.
Thayer said that the main focus of the laboratory in 2010 was restoring cases quicker, cheaper, and faster. With the help of five scanning systems, two milling systems and a wax printer, the technicians and 10 CDT’s were able to achieve this goal. Thayer reflected that, “CAD/CAM technology has allowed our staff of highly trained technicians to grow our laboratory business without hiring additional employees.”
Thayer is hoping that, “we are finally seeing some light at the end of the tunnel, and the dental laboratory industry will start back on positive growth for 2011.”
