Over 30 years ago, brothers Charles and Robert established Selser Dental Lab. Their father became their inspiration as they built their business on three proven principles:
• To meet the evolving challenges of dentistry •
• To produce consistent, high-quality dental restorations •
• To develop skill-building opportunities for our team of professionals •
Charles and Robert’s roots are in Louisiana. Charles attended Nicholls State University, and Robert attended Tulane University. They are both Certified Dental Technicians.
Charles entered the dental laboratory industry in 1974, and by 1980 he had established his own dental lab. His brother, Robert, entered the dental lab industry in 1979 at the age of 21 when he began his training under the tutelage of his father with various phases of fixed and removable techniques. As time progressed, Robert illustrated an aptitude and dexterity for the crown & bridge aspects of esthetic porcelain and composite to metal restorations.
In 1986, Charles and Robert created Selser Dental Lab, Inc. The synergy of their respective talents has allowed them to consistently provide leading-edge technologies and a high index of progressive dental services in Louisiana, Florida, and Mississippi for over 30 years.
Charles’ commitment to continuing education began in 1993 with his early involvement with metal-free restorations. Since then, he has focused on digital technologies, working with Nobel Biocare’s Procera system, Sirona’s CEREC inLab, 3Shape’s D710, and D1000 scanners, and Roland’s DWX 51D mill. CAD/CAM dentistry has become his area of strength, along with helping doctors implement digital modalities. He also completed training for all the premier implant systems including Zimmer, Nobel Biocare, Paragon (bought by Zimmer), Steri-Oss (subsidiary of Nobel Biocare), and ITI (Straumann).
Charles regularly conducts study club presentations, and even shared a 3M-sponsored program with Dr. Gerard Chiche. He has been Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer of the Louisiana State Dental Laboratory Association, and is also a member of the National Association of Dental Laboratories, the Louisiana State Dental Laboratory Association, and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.
Robert has spent over 20 years working with some of the region’s most respected practitioners. He’s the driving force behind Selser Lab’s consistent production excellence and attention to Total Quality Management procedures. His commitment to continuing education started thirteen years ago with implant training, as well as successful completion of Productivity Training Corporation’s Advanced Crown & Bridge Dental Studies. Since that time, he has successfully completed training in all the premier implant systems including Straumann, Zimmer, Nobel Biocare, Steri-Oss (subsidiary of Nobel Biocare), and ITI (Straumann).
