Meet Gilbert Perez — Flight Director
Gilbert Perez, our talented lab director, started working in the dental arts in 2007 as an entry level gold polisher. After a year and a half of finishing gold crowns, he was promoted to the implants department, where he gained experience in CAD/CAM implant abutment manufacturing. In 2010, Perez moved to Las Vegas to help with the manufacturing of zirconia, Emax, and titanium abutments.
After three years as a production technician, Perez moved on to CAD support, gaining experience with All-on-4® implant restorations and helping labs and doctors transition from traditional to CAD/CAM model-less restorations. He loves how quickly the industry is moving and is passionate about advancing his skill set. Gilbert is easy to communicate with and is an excellent digital artist. His passion for digital dentistry is contagious, and he is always happy to help.
