The Capital Dental Equipment Story
Our Passion: Providing high-quality, digital, dental x-ray solutions.
Our goal is to earn the loyalty and trust of all our customers by exceeding their every expectation.
In 2011 CDE was founded in a moment of inspiration and innovation. We established the industry’s first model of refurbishing and reselling digital X-ray units. Before us, the digital x-ray industry said a digital x-ray was considered unusable and obsolete after a few years of use. It was the silliest thing we’d ever heard!
And so, our skyrocketing startup was born out of a desire to maximize the value of excess Pano machines that our parent company, DHMS, no longer needed, but knew shouldn’t end up in a landfill.
We have developed our own cutting-edge recertification process and established a set of standards that meet the same quality benchmarks as our manufacturer partners. This gives us the ability to offer state-of-the-art dental imaging equipment at affordable prices that include comprehensive warranties.
We maximize the lifespan of x-ray units, making cutting-edge digital x-ray technology more affordable, and our world a greener place!
Get to Know Us
In 2011 I began an offshoot of my first startup, which became the success that is today known as Capital Dental Equipment. My life mission is to positively impact as many lives as possible, by providing the means for individuals to obtain access to better quality dental care. Dental health is a right for all, not a privilege for the few.
I am passionate about serving my community as well as my customers. Throughout my career, I have served and volunteered with several organizations including serving as co-chair for the Alzheimer’s Association Memory Walk, an annual participant and supporter of Hounds for Heroes, the Special Olympics, and acting as a deacon at the Austin Baptist Church.
