I began my career in 1985 working for a small family owned Dental Laboratory specializing in crown and bridge. While working in the business I attended Seattle Central Community College where I earned my Associate Degree in Science and received my Recognized Graduate in Dental Technology. I became a Certified Dental Technician in 1991 specializing in crown and bridge. Through the years I have participated in numerous study groups and continuing education programs to better my skills and knowledge in Dental Technology.

To help professionalize our industry I served on several boards one of which was the Washington State Dental Laboratory Association where I held the role of President in 1994.

In 1997 I purchased our family owned business, Totem Lake Dental Laboratory, and within a few years we grew our business to a 35 person Laboratory serving the needs of the area’s top Dentists. Our business goal was to stay on the cutting edge of Dentistry focusing on the latest advancements in Cosmetics, Digital Dentistry and Implantology.

In 2006 we had the opportunity to merge our business with one of the area’s largest Laboratory groups where I was involved in some of the latest technologies in Dentistry.

After 2 years of involvement, I realized my passion was still hand crafting Dental restorations, and in 2008 I opened Cox Dental Laboratory Inc. Our business focus is to produce the latest restoration of the highest standard from single crowns to full mouth rehabilitation cases. Our business has always been centered on strong relationships and great customer service. We are looking forward to working with clients that have similar expectations.
