The National Association of Dental Laboratories joins with you in recognizing the severity and magnitude of the destruction that natural disasters inflict upon its victims. We realize the emotional, physical, and financial devastation on the impacted individuals, businesses and local communities.
Some NADL members and members of the respective state associations have lost their businesses, livelihoods and residences. It is difficult to reach many of the individuals in the most impacted areas due to communications, and it is difficult to assess the extent of damage to the dental laboratories headquartered and the dental technicians employed in these areas.
Along with you, NADL will continue to monitor the recovery effort and its impact upon the dental laboratory industry.
