Oscar Macedo - San Diego Dental Design Laboratory


Oscar Macedo – Owner

After receiving his CDT from Concord College in 2000. Oscar when straight to work for other dental laboratories. Here is where Oscar noticed the lack of personal service and the substandard quality of the work. Clinicians being treated like just another account, no personal service, just another order to be filled. “I knew that there was a better way.” In 2007 Oscar started San Diego Dental Design to address these issues; our focus was to provide a highly personal service to the clinicians and improve the quality of finished restoration.

San Diego Dental Design has been serving San Diego County and other parts of the U.S for more than ten years now. We continue to push our philosophy of providing the most dependable service and high-quality restoration. This is our passion and what we love to do.
