Brent Norton - Director

Brent is a practicing Clinical Dental Technician and also runs his own clinical dental laboratory. Brent has practiced most areas of dental technology including, crown and bridge, implantology, cobalt chromium framework construction, orthodontics, and of course Plastics. Brent changed his technology focus when he was accepted onto the first Clinical Dental Technology course run by the University of Otago from which he qualified with distinction. With a strong interest in developing business opportunities Brent created his own successful clinical dental laboratory from which he has now developed two fully-equipped branches.
Brent's drive to develop a better software programme was borne out of frustration from not being able to find a simple, easy to use program suitable for his clinical dental laboratory with its dual functional requirements, Clinical and Laboratory. He wanted something that would help him with new healthcare legislative changes, but also to help manage and further develop his business.
Excited by the potential benefits of this unique software package Brent has teamed up with Evan and Stefan to develop a new software product that will not only help manage and develop his own practice but also aide the profession and benefit the dental industry in general.
