Chester Garcia – CEO, Louvre Dental

An entrepreneurial professional with a creative eye for catalyzing organizational change, a transformative leader skilled in enhancing business operations from an executive seat. For 25+ years, I served in executive roles within Da Vinci dental studios, sparking major growth in its operations, strategy, technical and financial functions. Last year I decided it was time to open a louver dental laboratory to bring to the market a quality product with a consistent degree of artistry and a service level and personal approach that I consider has been lost in the past few years. I have been able to assemble a technical team that believes in the beauty of artistic restorations without compromising the scientific and technical aspects of the process.

My progress at Da Vinci Dental Studios traces back to positions as manager of information systems and coo, culminating as CEO in 2009. I was handpicked as the CEO to overcome an organizational crisis, which I successfully achieved by restoring profitability and uncovering new opportunities for growth. I know what is possible to achieve in this industry; from the technical side as well as from the market side. As a master six sigma black belt I am keen on identifying and capitalizing on opportunities to impact enterprise-wide efficiencies and financial bottom lines. My expert acumen across business, technical and financial functions gives me the ability to navigate any business challenge while creating positive workplace cultures for employees and other stakeholders.
