Our President, Robert Jones, Jr., CDT

Robert Jones, Jr., CDTWhat a great profession we work in. Technology has brought forth many changes as we've stood fast with our professionalism.

We have moved forward keeping what's good and reaching for what's new. With integrity in hand and a broader vision in our sights, there's an appreciation for change. We've gone from traditional materials and technics to CAD-CAM and on to the digital era.

Many questions are encountered when moving forward, such as" should we purchase new equipment?"or "should we outsource?" The choices are many and selecting the new directions we want to take can be unnerving. Explore all means, and there are many when making these important decisions.

The ultimate goal is maintaining a standard that we can be proud of. That we've sought out the studies that carry us on to perform our mission to the highest level is paramount.

The key to accomplishing this goal is through education, which our association provides for all members and technicians. Let us join in moving forward together by communicating with one another, so that all dentists and patients can benefit from our professionalism.

Meet us in November at the Eastern Conference of Dental Laboratories in Concord, NC and at our spring meeting, April 30-May 3, 2015 in Charleston, SC. Our website, scdla.org, offers up-to-date information on these meetings. Look to seeing you at both!

Many regards,
Robert Jones, Jr.
