Tony graduated from Texas State Technical Institute as a Dental Laboratory Technician and later earned the title Certified Dental Technician “CDT”. He joined Rocky Mountain Orthodontics in Sept of 1988 and has worked in all aspects of the business, ranging from traveling sales support to being named to the position of Chairman and CEO. Tony’s interest has always peaked with Product Development, and he has headed RMO’s product development efforts for the last 15 years. Self-proclaimed as “living the American Dream”, Tony believes that having the ability to give back brings deep feelings of joy.
