Nov. 12, 2018 Lompoc, CA - DenMat Holdings, LLC ("DenMat") was named a 2018 EconAlliance Award Winner on November 8, 2018, at an annual forum hosted by the Economic Alliance of Northern Santa Barbara County ("EconAlliance"). A nonprofit organization in Central California, EconAlliance comprises economic and community leaders interested in increasing family-wage jobs driven by innovation and support of key growth industry sectors in the region. This mission is accomplished through collaboration and utilization of regional assets that cumulatively enhance economic development efforts within Santa Barbara County.
The EconAlliance Award is presented to persons and/or organizations that have demonstrated the ability to create value in Santa Barbara County through innovative product and service offerings.
"We are thrilled to receive the EconAlliance award and honored to be recognized as a leading innovator in Santa Barbara County," shares David Casper, Chief Executive Officer, DenMat.
DenMat, through its innovative Additive-Reductive Template ("A.R.T.") protocol, provides its dentist customers the ability to perform dentistry using a template that eliminates guesswork and increases quality. Dentists purchasing Lumineers minimal-prep veneers for their patients seeking a smile makeover most commonly prescribe A.R.T. This state-of-the-art template may be placed over the patient's existing smile and provides dentists a step-by-step guide for tooth preparation, as well as other notable benefits.
"Our A.R.T. product has revolutionized the way dentists treat cosmetic and esthetic cases, and is driving incredible growth for our company right here in Lompoc," adds Casper.
A.R.T. relies on custom templates for contouring and adjusting dentition to ensure a minimally invasive approach, along with a custom "Trial Smile" provisional to gain patient acceptance. The A.R.T. templates provide a "guided" approach to tooth reduction, as well as a communication tool between the practice and the laboratory technician. The patient leaves the prep appointment with a beautiful provisional restoration that allows him or her to visualize the final restoration and communicate any changes desired prior to delivery of the final case.
EconAlliance, during the award presentation, called DenMat's A.R.T. innovation a testament to the forward-thinking approach of DenMat's leadership and management teams. Furthermore, it was noted that such services demonstrate a commitment to improving business processes for customer retention. Such strategies have helped DenMat secure itself as a global industry leader, and EconAlliance shared that its pleased to have the company call Santa Barbara County its home.
