Dandy

Dandy

Carrollton, TX, USA
Posted on Friday, November 10, 2023

Dandy is transforming the massive ($200B) but antiquated dental industry. Backed by some of the world's leading venture capital investors, we are on an ambitious mission to integrate and simplify every function of the dental practice through technology. By building the operating system for every dental office in America, Dandy is empowering dentists with technology, innovation, and world-class support to achieve more for their practice, their people, and their patients.

We are looking for entry level employees to join our growing manufacturing team in Carrollton, TX! You will be responsible for operating our production processes in the dental manufacturing lab to ensure that orders are fabricated at the highest quality standards per customer deadlines. This role will require accurate shade distinction and color matching. If you’re looking to help disrupt an industry status quo and take lead in building and scaling a “Gold Standard Department” per aggressive growth targets, this is the right place for you! We don’t just want to offer you a job, we want to help you build a career by providing you with future opportunities for growth.

These are a few of the departments you could build a career in:

Crown and Bridge
Using an artistic touch, these technicians finish minute details on crowns. Using stains, glazes, and rotary handpieces, they ensure crowns match the patients’ existing teeth. Detail oriented, fine motor skills and ability to work under a microscope a must.

Milling
Using computer software, these technicians position the designed crowns into a virtual block which will then be milled. Technicians position crowns in the block to get the best results from milling machines and to maximize raw materials. Must be computer savvy and detail oriented.

Shipping
These technicians stand for most of the day. They package restorations and removables for shipment to the dental practices.

Order Entry
These technicians should be computer savvy. They must pay attention to the details. The details are critical as they determine how an order works its way through the lab. These specialists also move around throughout the lab as needed to track the orders

Quality Control
These technicians work under a microscope all day, validating that the completed products perfectly match the doctors’ order. They use handpieces to ensure the fit and they verify the appearance by color matching the patients' existing teeth. They must be detail oriented as they ensure the product meets or exceeds our strict quality standards.
