Norm Ross - CEO

Norm has always been focused on dental technology and has over 45 years of experience in the restorative dental industry. He attended Elkhart University's dental technician program before enrolling at Indiana University. He was working at the bench by 1970 and received his CDT five years later. He has continued to expand his skills through the years by attending Dawson Academy, Tanaka Dental Technology Institute, Don Cornell Techniques, and the DSG Affiliate training programs.

Norm purchased a small removable lab called Dental Service Laboratory in 1977. He set to work perfecting and expanding its services into a full-service lab. He officially changed the name to Oratech Laboratories, Inc. in 1987.

When Norm is not in the lab, he enjoys riding his Harley and spending time on his farm.
