Awards, and Giving Back to the Community

Molina/Watson Dental Technologies, Inc. is an active part of our community. Along with our continuing education programs for local dental study groups, we host annual blood drives and sponsor local little league athletic teams.

At our annual blood drive, we exceeded our donation goal by 17%. Our employees, their families, clients and more gathered to donate blood to the United Blood Service. We thanked those who participated by having a pizza “lunch”.

In 2008 Molina/Watson Dental Technologies Inc. received the Sandoval County Small Business Development Center’s 2007 - 2008 Star Client Award. Here’s what the Sandoval County Small Business Development Center had to say about us:

“Bright teeth, bright future! Molina/Watson Dental Technologies, Inc. has seen phenomenal growth in its first year of operation at its facility located in Rio Rancho. The start-up dental laboratory specializes in fixed restorations of teeth; including crowns, bridges and implants. The company has rapidly growing customer base of approximately 30 dentists across the state of New Mexico. Dentists in Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Santa Fe, Socorro, Farmington, Ruidoso, Los Lunas and Espanola are currently being served by Molina/Watson Dental Technologies. The company’s reputation is also growing nationally and they are serving clients in Bowling Green, Kentucky and Las Vegas, Nevada. The company currently has seven employees and possesses state-of-the-art technology such as a 3-D laser scanner, which when used in conjunction with exotic materials such as titanium and zirconia, allows them to design teeth with precision that assures a perfect fit on replacement teeth.

Richard Molina and Fred Watson, the owners of Molina/Watson Dental Technologies bring over 70 years of dental restorative experience to their business. Mr. Molina said “the SBDC helped us in organizing and setting the direction of our business”. Mr. Molina and Mr. Watson have recently returned to the Sandoval County SBDC to seek information on expanding their business as they have outgrown their existing manufacturing space and require a larger facility in order to serve their growing customer base.

Molina/Watson Dental Technologies emphasizes consistent, high quality products and superior service to its clients. The laboratory currently has provisional certification from the National Board of Certification for Dental Laboratory Technology and expects full certification in the coming weeks. Mr. Molina and Mr. Watson’s vast experience, customer commitment, and approach to quality have all contributed to their success. This formula should help propel the continued growth of their successful business. To this we say Bon Appetite!”

Richard Molina CDT and Fred Watson CDT attended the New Mexico Small Business Development Center Network’s Eleventh Annual Client Success Day at the state capitol, where we were able to display information about Molina/Watson Dental Technologies, Inc. That evening at the annual banquet, we received a certificate from New Mexico’s Lieutenant Governor Diane Denish recognizing our contribution to the economic well being of the City of Rio Rancho and the State of New Mexico as an entrepreneur.
