Who is Dental Design Studio Inc?

The CEO and Founder, Daniel M. Carlson CDT 

I was fortunate to start my career in dental technology by being trained by great teachers. With my artistic abilities, I found my passion. Back in 1980 I started as a plaster technician for a small laboratory in San Mateo, California. My abilities to artistically understand and create partial designs led me on a path of success because my work was recognized as unique. 

In 1988 I completed my certification in removable prosthetic s. As a CDT, and with further education through the CDLA’s advanced courses, I was able to develop removable departments for several laboratories. In 1990 I opened my first laboratory. Specializing in partial dentures, Dental Design Studio Inc was started on 4th Street in Santa Rosa, California. 

After a few years I became interested in the politics of our Dental Laboratory Association and became the President of the Redwood Dental Component of the CDLA and served for two years. During this time I taught classes specifically in partial denture and partial crown and bridge combination design. Teaching is very rewarding and I continue to learn and share my education today.

Dental Design Studio, Inc. today has grown with my interests and now with branching into CAD/CAM technology. The future of my passion is unlimited. It has always been very important to me to have a successful team and teaching individuals as I have learned. The success I believe is in the detailed individualized pieces of work and has been recognized by some of our best in dentistry. I believe a sense of pride in one’s work holds greater value than producing multiples of mediocrity. This is what I continually strive to do.

Made in the U.S.A.

We strive to provide the best in removable and fixed restorations. We design and produce all of our products on site in our dental laboratory. As we expand our technologies, in particular with our CAD/CAM restorations, some of our components are made outside our facility, but still in the U.S.A. We feel strongly that our products not be made overseas so that we can feel confident we are supporting American workers and providing you the highest quality and safest products possible.
