H. Thomas Heupel, MDT, is now the new General Manager of Lab Operations at Jesse & Frichtel Dental Lab. Heupel joins Jesse & Frichtel, an implant specialist lab with locations in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania, and Indianapolis, Indiana, from Custom Milling Center where he was the production manager.
Heupel’s extensive background in restorative dentistry across two continents deepens Jesse & Frichtel’s expert bench, known for its ability to handle the most difficult implant cases.
“We’re extremely excited to have Thomas join our organization,” said Mark Frichtel, President and CEO of Jesse & Frichtel. “With his proprietary technique for design and fabrication of hybrid screw-retained bridges, his restorations are truly incomparable, and Heupel will serve as a huge asset as we expand our full zirconia bridge offerings.”
As General Manager of Lab Operations, Heupel will train staff, oversee cases, and fabricate restorations within the Jesse & Frichtel Lab.
Heupel earned a bachelor’s degree in dental technology and business administration from Ronneburg, Germany’s Masterschool of Dental Technology before finishing his Master Dental Technician certification. Before arriving at Jesse & Frichtel, he worked as a technician and operations manager for major laboratories in Germany, Canada, Boston, and Los Angeles.
