Meet the Staff

Sara Kazan, CDT
President

Sara founded Nellmar Dental Laboratory in 2002 after 20 years as a dental technician, more than 11 of them as a business partner and Certified Dental Technician (CDT) at Studio Dental Ceramics. Sara saw an opportunity to pair her technical and business strengths, building a team of professional dental technicians and artisans who have diverse and deep skills in all aspects of creating high-quality, esthetically pleasing restorations and implants. Sara and her team have grown and evolved the business to meet the needs of a growing and evolving dentist community, while remaining true to their business ideals, their ongoing pursuit of excellence, and their local community. Sara is the proud mother of three boys.  She's an equestrian and enjoys cooking during her off hours.
