Dan and Joy O’Rourke opened (then) O’Rourke Dental Studio in Peterborough, New Hampshire whose motto, “Where Beauty and Function Come Together” played a large role in their vision for the boutique laboratory. The vision was to create a laboratory to help dentist’s grow their practices and offer their patients the highest of quality within the industry.
Over the last three and a half decades, DOM has committed themselves to further education at institutes such as, The Schuster Center, The Dawson Academy, and the OBI Foundation amongst others.
Dan has written numerous publications for LMT, Dentistry Today and has lectured both nationally and internally, at institutions such as Harvard School of Dentistry. He has taught for industry leaders such as Ivoclar, Ultradent, and Bego.
With a strong passion for teaching, DOM has turned its focus to health and systems-based dentistry, co-founding programs such as Integritas, a multi-disciplinary approach to dental care and the Texas Center for Occlusal Studies and Minimally Invasive Dentistry from 2010-2016.
