Her dental career began in 1981, working at the front desk in a dental lab.  After receiving a degree in Dental Technology from the Community College of Baltimore, Mary went to work in a full-service commercial lab.  She was there for over 20 years & became the General Manager of that lab, before opening her own lab in 2000.  After 5 successful years, she sold her lab, then went to work as a dental assistant in a local practice.  With a passion for the industry & as a porcelain ceramist with an eye for detail & perfect shades, Mary manages our Sales Department. She offers invaluable chairside technical assistance & custom shades, while building & maintaining strong doctor-patient relationships.

“Doctors often ask me which product I recommend.  With such a vast variety of products, there is an option to fit everyone’s budget. The key is choosing the option with the right balance of esthetics & strength.”
