Dorsey Dental Lab, Inc., established in 2005, is an innovative, forward-thinking lab in Rogers, AR. The staff members are embracing and shaping advancements in dental technology everyday. Richard Dorsey was first in the nation to perform some advances in CAD/CAM implant design and surgical planning models, Richard has forged the way and with his innovative techniques has created cost-saving, more efficient ways to complete surgical pre-planning and provide guides to be used during dental surgeries. He recently was on the cover of LMT Magazine for his work in this area.
Richard’s journey began in Tennessee in 2000 when he opened his 1st lab. He brought the discipline from being a United States Marine, the technological skills from working for TRW, the medical and strategic skills of his time as a firefighter and EMT with him. The experience of apprenticing at another dental lab helped him to embark on this new adventure. The path led to owning a lab in Texas, Tennessee and finally a lab in Arkansas. Dorsey Dental Lab, Inc. was incorporated in 2005 and Richard married Angela Kleinsasser in 2006. Together they grew a thriving business in Rogers, AR and soon expanded. In 2013 a second lab opened in Fayetteville, AR. In 2016 Dorsey Dental Lab, Inc. joined with Guided Systems in Palm Harbor, FL and created Precision Guided Surgery, LLC.
