Alex Rugh, CDTTeam Leader, Implants
Alex started with O’Brien in 1998 and held a variety of customer service and administrative positions. During this time, he became familiar with our customers and gained knowledge about our products and services, especially those pertaining to implants. As a pioneer in the industry for implants, O’Brien developed a strong reputation and loyal following of implant customers. Given our volume of business and the componentry involved with implants, O’Brien designated one person to prepare our implant cases for production. A quick learner, Alex was the obvious choice for this position. His considerable knowledge of computers was valuable as the industry became more automated with CAD/CAM technology. His role has expanded to include ordering and designing custom CAD/CAM implant abutments. Alex has been involved in thousands of implant cases and attended hundreds of hours of continuing education courses. He is the only CDT in Oregon with a specialty in implants.
