Meridian Dental Laboratory was founded by Jason Jones and Sonny Chiang, American entrepreneurs with over 40 years of combined experience in dental lab outsourcing, both on the client side and as providers.
Daniel was born and raised in China. After graduating from the Chinese Academy of Social Science specializing in manufacturing and supply chain management of specialty goods, Daniel held several professor positions at top Chinese universities such as Wuhan University of Technology and Wuhan Institute of Technology, specializing in 3D printing technologies. Some of his projects include national key research and development on “the whole process monitoring of medical and industrial interaction and determination index and acceptance condition of customized medical devices .Daniel also currently serves as the chief strategy officer at Yaci Dental Digital, a Chinese dental product company that specializes dental equipment and products for the Chinese market.
The son of a dentist, Jason grew up in Dallas, Texas. After college and some time working in the corporate world, he decided to open his own business. Growing up around his father’s practice, Jason understood the dental industry and saw potential for more laboratories in Texas, which was growing rapidly in population at that time. His lab grew quickly and within a few years he opened a second location to serve the central part of the state. As his lab business grew, so did the demand on production. Jason determined that outsourcing provided the most efficient and cost effective way to streamline production and began working with a lab in China, where Mr. Huang was a partner.
Experienced lab owners and entrepreneurs in their own right, Jason and Sonny came up with a solution: open their own outsourcing laboratory in China; hire on-site English-speaking CDT’s and highly trained technicians; utilize the latest in dental technology advancements; and provide continuing education to keep current with the ever-changing technology in the field.
As partners, Jason and Sonny bring years of experience and knowledge to Meridian Dental Laboratory. Our mission is to be the outsourcing solution of choice for dental lab owners worldwide, and we aim to offer only the highest possible level of quality and standards for our customers.
