In 1978, a young Randy Grubb realized that he had to make a choice to either be a dentist or a dental technician. Well due to finances at the time, Randy chose to open R-Dent Dental Laboratory, and a career in dental technology was born. His primary focus was to offer excellent customer service combined with high-quality and consistent-fitting Crown & Bridge products with outstanding esthetics. R-Dent still does this today under the leadership of his son Daxton and is one of the finest, full-service, family-run dental laboratories in Tennessee and the Southeast.
In 2003, Daxton joined the family business after graduating cum laude from Christian Brothers University in Memphis with a BS degree in Business Administration and a double major in Finance and Management. Daxton also had a career at Enterprise Inc., where he rose to the managerial ranks in a short period of time. Soon after joining the R-Dent team, Daxton found that he was a good fit for the sales and marketing department. Within a year and half, he helped make the lab full-service by adding many new products and even a removable department. In 2016, R-Dent had grown from seven to sixty-two employees, servicing hundreds of dentists in the West Tennessee area. Since then, Daxton was promoted to President and as of 2020 is now the owner. Today, Randy is retired enjoying some of his time away from the lab, although he routinely visits the lab still. Daxton is continuing to find more ways to help dental practices grow their business by making R-Dent one of the best dental laboratories in the southeastern region. In addition, Daxton’s digital dentistry expertise makes him a key source of information for any dental practitioner getting into the new, digital work-flow. Daxton served as President of the Southeastern Dental Lab Conference and also in the past served on the Business Management Committee for the National Association of Dental Laboratories. He has presented both here in the US and Internationally at and taken part in panel forums at many of the industry’s most prestigious events, including IDS (Cologne, Germany), Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting, NADL’s Vision 21 Meeting, CAL-LAB Meeting, LMT Lab Days, and the Southeastern Conference of Dental Laboratories.
