As Director of Implant R&D and Digital Manufacturing, Grant will oversee the lab's development, manufacturing and release of multiple implant and digital products and services. With more than 14 years of R&D experience, Grant's "inherently driven nature make him the right candidate to ensure that digital and implant manufacturing continue to support the company's strategic goals," stated Glidewell Laboratories COO Greg Minzenmayer.

Paula began her career at Glidewell in 1980 and held various roles throughout the company before becoming Manager of Customer Relations in 1996. As Director of Customer Care, Paula will be responsible for ensuring all customer contact across the lab exceeds the lab's service commitments. This will include corporate-wide review and oversight of all customer-facing employees. Working with the Call Center managers, she will define minimum performance standards, create needed reports and tools, and define companywide standards of care. Paula's outstanding service and communication skills make her ideal for this new position - a position that is critical to the future success of the dental lab.

Armine joined Glidewell in 1999 as a Customer Relations representative and was soon promoted to Training Coordinator and then to Team Lead.
