Nick Azar, Azar and Associates, Approved as DAMAS Consultant

Posted on September 11, 2012

Tallahassee, FL—The National Association of Dental Laboratories (NADL) is pleased to announce that Nick Azar of Azar and Associates has been approved as an authorized DAMAS consultant.

The DAMAS (Dental Appliance Manufacturers Audit System) is an internationally recognized process on quality assurance and manufacturing practices specifically geared for commercial dental laboratories. To achieve DAMAS accreditation requires passing a third party audit inspection and takes considerable investment by a laboratory operation to implement the comprehensive standards and requirements of the system. Forward thinking laboratories go through the process of implementation to improve their manufacturing operations as well as to ensure better documentation and case handling of dental patient cases prescribed by dentists.

“We are pleased to have Nick Azar as an authorized DAMAS consultant. Mr. Azar’s previous experience working in commercial dental laboratories combined with his business consulting/coaching experience is a win win. Mr. Azar has gone through required training in U.S. FDA quality system regulations which correlate to the DAMAS process. Having an authorized DAMAS consultant on the West Coast of the U.S. is very beneficial given the large concentration of dental laboratories” says Bennett Napier, CAE, NADL executive director.

The DAMAS process is administered through the National Association of Dental Laboratories which is a

trade association representing commercial dental laboratories.
