Passion for knowledge and the pursuit of excellence.
Sarah has been in the industry since 2004, after completing Kirkwood Community College’s Dental Laboratory Technology Program in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. She worked as a full-time ceramist for two years at a small laboratory before joining an in-house team at a family and prosthodontic practice. She worked at The Dental Center for 12 years before making the move to Colorado in 2018. Sarah worked at two Colorado laboratories, before joining another in-house team at Denver Restorative Dentistry in 2019.
The majority of her career has been in the clinic working with prosthodontists and interacting with patients on a daily basis. This has been the main building block in her career, learning from specialists and seeing her work in the patient’s mouth.
Education has always been important to Sarah. She earned her CDT in 2007, specializing in ceramics, served as a committee member and treasurer of The Iowa Dental Laboratory Association for nine years, and has earned multiple certificates after completing hands-on courses. She has had the opportunity to learn from some of the best technicians in the world, including Oral Design members Olivier Tric and Stefan Pica.
Sarah’s passion and precision in tooth artistry is demonstrated in her work. From shade matching a single tooth to designing a full smile makeover, her ultimate goal and satisfaction is seeing a smiling patient at the end of treatment. Sarah made the jump from the clinic to starting Meraki Dental Studio in 2021. She understands the need for a quality dental laboratory in the area and is here to deliver exceptional service and products.
When not making teeth, Sarah enjoys living a balanced, healthy lifestyle. This includes Crossfit, hiking, biking, cooking new recipes, drinking wine and visiting local breweries.
