Premiere Dental Laboratory Keeps Growing but Retains Heart & Outstanding Culture
Huntingdon Valley, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/17/2019 -- Cornerstone Dental Labs, even through exponential growth, has always put employee culture and family first. However, considering the company's humble beginnings, it's not surprising that owner, Jay Collins, has worked hard to cultivate a company atmosphere that's big on heart and prides itself on producing amazing results for clients. Established in 1989 by John P. Collins, Master Dental Technician and Jay's Uncle, Cornerstone Dental Labs (originally called Bio-Comp) started small with just a handful of technicians and a strong determination to distinguish themselves from the competition by creating superior dental products to help their clients (dentists) continually deliver an exceptional patient experience. This commitment to excellence has paid off for the lab tenfold with steady growth, expanding from a lean team of 5 to 33 employees, and a relocation to a larger warehouse outside of Philadelphia in Bristol Borough.
"Jay and I are cousins; this business has been in our family for years. John P. Collins, who originally started this lab, learned off my Dad, Jim. It's a great company! You don't see many companies that are relaxed like this, but still extremely productive. And we are always trying our best to keep up with the newest technology" – Chris Collins, Dental Technician, Cornerstone Dental Labs.
In 2008, Jay Collins took over ownership of and running the dental lab, expanding service divisions to satisfy an always growing client base with a focus on using innovative technology to increase lab productivity and create an environment where employees are excited to come to work every day.
"It's an incredible work environment! Everyone is nice and goes out of their way to make you feel welcome. When I first started, I was blown away by the level of expertise and experience our staff bring into work every day. And you would think that it would come with a certain amount of ego, but it's a completely collaborative and supportive environment. There are no silos; everyone works together to do the best they can because they are committed to what they do. We really try to make our staff feel appreciated and promote work-life balance. From employee appreciation luncheons or group outings to a Phillies game. It's also not uncommon for our staff's kids to work here over the summer or on weekends. It's nice to see such a deep commitment to the importance of family." -Melissa Newman, Digital Media Manager, Cornerstone Dental Labs.
It's a place where employees are encouraged to share ideas and contribute meaningfully to client outcomes. There is structure that supports scaling a business, but with none of the politics that come with a hierarchy. An environment where father and son can work side by side, passing down a trade to a new generation and spend quality time together.
"I followed the lab from Huntingdon Valley. In our previous location, it was only a 10 min commute from my home. Now, depending on traffic, it can be an hour or more drive, which means a little less time when I get home on a workday to see my two kids. This past summer, my eldest son was looking for his first summer job and was having a hard time (finding that first job can be tough), and I asked Jay (Collins) if there was something he could do here and without hesitation he said "Sure! Bring him in." It was a great summer! Me and my son (Logan), commuted to work and got to spend more quality time together. Jay's a good guy; he takes care of people." – Brian Smith, Dental Technician, Cornerstone Dental Labs.
As 2019 begins to wind down, Cornerstone Dental Labs shows no signs of slowing its pace. With an exciting revision for the brand on the horizon for 2020, new client and territory expansions currently in the works; this dental implant lab remains committed to not only providing the best experience for its clients but for its employees and their families too.
