GDC Holdings, Inc., which owns National Dentex Labs (NDX), has announced it has acquired Trident Dental Laboratories, headquartered in Hawthorne, California. While NDX and Trident will continue to operate independently, their combined offerings, at a variety of price points, provide superior restorative dentistry options and further advance NDX’s leadership position in the dental lab industry.
With a 30-year history as a proven full-service manufacturer and distributor of dental prosthetics, Trident’s established national distribution channels expand the reach of NDX’s network of more than 30 dental labs across the US, mostly serving local markets.
“We’re committed to maintaining our focus on top quality dental restorations while leveraging the strengths of both Trident and NDX to grow our business and enhance our offerings,” said Tom Daulton, CEO of GDC Holdings. “With an expanded portfolio we can deliver a broader range of options to dentists and patients in all corners of the United States and better meet the demands of a rapidly changing marketplace.”
With continued investment in digital technologies as well as the corresponding customer care and service capabilities, NDX, along with Trident, advances its position as a leader in digital dentistry. A commitment to using only best-in-class technology means more options and offerings that are cost-effective for dentists yet deliver the best treatment outcomes for patients.
“Over the last 30 years, Trident has built one of the most progressive dental labs with an international platform second-to-none,” said Laurence Fishman, founder and owner, who will continue on as Trident’s president. “We have continuously remained at the forefront of innovation. Together with NDX, our integrated capabilities are unparalleled as we advance our leadership and shape the future of the dental lab industry.”
With a combined team of nearly 3,500 professional and technical employees, the dental labs of GDC Holdings specialize in superior-quality crowns, bridges, dentures, dental implants, appliances, and orthodontics, as well as headache and sleep therapy products. NDX will maintain its headquarters in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, while Trident will continue to operate out of its Hawthorne, California facility.
