CCAD grads practice fine art of dentistry

When this owner of a boutique dental lab needs an artistic eye, she recruits dental technicians from Columbus College of Art & Design. 

When Image Gallery owner Lonni Thompson needs technicians with the skills to make high-quality crowns, bridges, implants, and other products, she turns to CCAD. 

“From Thompson’s signature orange lab coat to the description of her five team members as dental artisans, Image Gallery treats its work as an art. Thompson recruits at CCAD because she believes having an artistic eye and the ability to look at things differently puts her team at an advantage,” reports Columbus CEO magazine in its February 2020 issue.

Among Thompson’s employees is CCAD alum Justin Gray (Fine Arts, 2004) who puts his degree to work creating ceramics for dental products, and making paintings that hang on the lab’s wall.
