Jerry Ulaszek is the owner of Artistic Dental Laboratories in Bolingbrook, Illinois. This year marks 35 years as a full-service dental laboratory for Artistic Dental Laboratories. Jerry's dedication to consistently providing the highest quality of product and services has qualified the lab as one of only three Dawson Academy dental laboratories worldwide, and one of only 50 DAMAS certified labs in the USA. Jerry can proudly say that all Artistic products are made right here in the USA.
Dr. Robert Spreen of Bellevue, Washington, a long-time customer, states, "Thank you Artistic for your dedication – I'm often asked "Can't you find a lab closer than Illinois?" and my answer is 'not with this level of dedication.' Great job!"
Jerry is committed to developing educational programs for today's dental professionals. He is a highly sought after public speaker and instructor at Dental Society Meetings and Study Clubs throughout the country on topics ranging from indirect materials, implants, overdentures, partial designs, and the All-On-4™ technique.

Born and raised in the Chicagoland area Dan, better known as "Danny," almost seemed destined for the dental lab. The son of a lab owner and hygienist, Danny is a 2nd generation CDT and a member of the National Association of Dental Laboratories (NADL) Business Management Committee. Danny started his dental lab career in high school, where he began to familiarize himself with the basics of the lab, like cleaning and maintaining the equipment. During College, he began to learn the handcrafted art of what is porcelain and metal Crown and Bridge Dental Technology. Post-college Danny went on to work in and managed the Metal Finishing department while earning his CDT accreditation in 2010. As CAD/CAM Technologies emerged and began to be incorporated into the laboratory, Danny began to learn and implement many of the latest technologies you can find at Artistic Dental Laboratories. Dedicated to making sure Artistic Dental Laboratories is the go-to authority in all of the newest technologies, Danny has become the go-to authority within the lab for anything digital both in the lab and in your practice. He can often be heard saying, "I may not know everything, but I probably know where to find it... Google!"

After fifteen years in the optical field, James transitioned into dental as a territory manager for a lab and spent ten successful years there. With a passion to succeed, he learned that knowledge was the path to success and loves learning about the craft. Participating in multiple study clubs and starting two, he gained a strong dental knowledge. After working for a dentist with a sizeable group of practices, a ten-state dental CAD/CAM territory, and running a digital design department working as a removable technician including doing All-on-4 conversions chairside, he came back to managing a local territory with Artistic. Outside of work, he has a passion for family, fly fishing, biking, and fancies himself as an amateur chef.
