For the past thirteen years Cameron has worked in the dental industry. Read in his own words his professional experience and his drive for exceptional service. "It was my privilege to work for a global dental implant company. My position allowed me to thoroughly understand the needs, and the pressure dentists practice under. I gained an invaluable perspective of the dynamic/fluid relationship needed between lab technicians, dentists and their staff. I am at Unique to ensure you are provided exceptional laboratory care. The team at Unique Dental Group has the talent, passion and deep commitment to exceed your expectations for quality dental products and outstanding service. Our goal is to help you achieve the success you desire within your own dental practice, and to be sure the experience you have at Unique, truly is unique. In the near future, we will be furthering our in-house capabilities, so you may be assured your needs stay in our capable hands. In my spare time, as a husband and father, I enjoy the outdoors, golfing, fishing and spending time with my family. I look forward to building lasting relationships with our dentists and employees. Just one other thought, Unique didn't just select me as their CEO, I also selected them because of their dedication to the industry, and their vision for the future of dental laboratories."

My role at Unique is to ensure that every product we offer is the highest quality in the dental industry. As the founding owner of Unique, my signature of approval is on every case that arrives at your office. I have over 22 years experience in the dental field, and I am a certified dental technician with a specialty in ceramics. Unique has grown into an incredible company in five years, and that is due to the excellent people we have on our team. The environment I have encouraged for my organization is one of teaming, talent, and hard work. I introduced the four-day work week in 2008, and positive attitudes skyrocketed. Quality improved with the work week change, and efficiency with individual time management increased. Our designers are some of the most talented technicians in the industry, and we all enjoy working together to provide the best products for the world. When I am not at Unique I enjoy music, drawing, and spending time with my family and new grandson. We are your people behind the smile.
Along with my wife, Melissa, I founded the Aspen Ridge Dental in Casper Wyoming. My special interests of dentistry revolve around implantology and the oral surgery aspects of dentistry. Having performed well over 1,500 dental implant placements and restorations, I am privileged to have become a leader in the community in this discipline. I am one of very few dentists that not only places, but restores dental implants. Other areas of interest in the field of dentistry I have are the treatment of complex full mouth reconstructions, TMJ disorders and diagnosis, and adult/child handicap hospital-based dentistry. It is with great pride that I have privileges and operate out of the Casper Surgical Center and Wyoming Medical Center on a regular basis on these special needs patients. I take great pride in the extensive continuing education that I complete on a yearly basis to stay current with the ever changing practice of dentistry. Melissa is in the office part time as her schedule allows. Our lives are fulfilled with love of faith and family. We have three beautiful children, two daughters and one son, and our young family is starting to fill up our free time! I have always enjoyed the outdoors, including hunting and fishing, as well as being an accomplished pilot, holding a private and instrument rating. It is my goal to live life to the fullest, never taking a single day for granted. It is with this mindset that I so much enjoy my family and my practice equally.

I began my career by attending the Dental Technology program at San Francisco City College. Upon graduation, I was recognized with the "Outstanding Student Award" presented by the Northern California Dental Lab Association. I began working in a laboratory even before I completed my school training. After 35 years, I have gained a great deal of experience in all areas of dental technology. My understanding and experience of materials, new technologies and implants make me an important resource to the lab and to our Doctors. I am Unique's technical consultant and implant specialist, teaming with Dr. P.K. Clark at his WhiteCap Institute for Dental Implants in Heber Valley, Utah. I work diligently to support each of our doctors, and I also lecture for dental study groups across the country. My wife Leslie and I are the parents of 3 children and are anxious to become grandparents. In my free time, I love fly fishing, hiking and rooting for my local college sports teams while being actively involved serving in my church and community.
My education and experience is very different from the other leaders at Unique. I am a psychotherapist, and had a private practice in Sugar House before I joined the team at Unique. I spent the last five years learning the dental industry, and my "outside" opinions and insights have given Unique a different perspective to add to the multi-talented people here that are masters at what they do. I have over fifteen years experience consulting with leaders in the medical field, and have presented at numerous conferences in Salt Lake City on leadership, teaming, and professional development. I was also an adjunct instructor at the University of Utah Graduate School of Social Work. My research study at a non-profit organization on "Autistic Adults and Animal Connections" was featured on CNN's Science and Technology channel in 1997. I received the Iva Goody award in 2003 from the State of Utah for support and services provided to the community by a social sector organization. Before coming to Unique, my team developed a guide for peak behavior for personal performance 2006. As the Vice President of Unique, I am in charge of developing our Leadership Institute, and overseeing the operations of the company. I enjoy golfing, reading, gardening, playing Mario Kart, and spending time with my wonderful family.

I have been involved in the dental field either directly or indirectly for 30 years. I worked as a dental assistant in a family practice for 6 years and enjoyed working closely with my doctor to help each patient have an enjoyable and positive dental experience. In the summer of 1985 I decided to take to the skies and accepted employment with Eastern Airlines. I graduated at the top of my class in the Sales and Marketing program and went on to become one of their top employees in reservations and vacation planning. When Eastern shut down, I decided to go back to the dental industry and became the assistant office manager for a prominent dental lab. A short time later I had the opportunity to join a large international dental lab. I worked there for 16 1/2 years and served as an account manager for over 200 dentists. During this time I was also instrumental in setting up and implementing an Employee Communication Committee including the Employee of the Month and Employee of the Year programs. Aesthetic Dentistry magazine featured an article on my "white glove" service to doctors and many of my doctors have referred their fellow associates to me because of it. In October of 2008 I joined the team at Unique Dental Group and became one of the owners. I thoroughly enjoy being a part of such a progressive and innovative organization and I receive great satisfaction from the association and friendships I have developed with doctors and staff over the years.
