James R. Ament, founder of Toothsmiths, Inc.

James R. Ament, founder of Toothsmiths, Inc., opened his dental laboratory in Lititz, Pennsylvania, in 1988. Ten years later, Jim received certification as Master Dental Technologist from New York University’s College of Dentistry.

Now a member of the American Society of Master Dental Technologists, Jim regularly enriches his knowledge and skill base with clinical and post-graduate dental coursework through the Pankey Institute, the Dawson Academy, and other recognized programs.

Learning is an active pursuit for Jim. While study clubs provide opportunities to both share with and learn from his peers and colleagues, Jim also invests in the development of his staff. Toothsmiths’ technicians have access to an on-site, fully equipped training lab. Web seminars and training videos guide hands-on instruction, allowing technicians to advance as they refine skills and learn new ones.
