TRAINER - Elvis Rosado

Elvis Rosado owns and operates Matrix Dental Laboratory in Valley Stream, NY, a boutique operation specializing exclusively in removable thermoplastic flexible partials.  Elvis began his career in the dental industry in 1977 at Master Touch Dental Laboratory in Long Island City, NY.  He was one of the original technicians that worked in a production laboratory fabricating thermoplastic partials.  

In 1985 he was promoted to manager and held that position until he was again honored by becoming the official trainer for Valplast.  Elvis created the training curriculum and literally trained thousands of technicians worldwide the art of a properly fabricated thermoplastic appliance.  He introduced the concept of the flexible partial to the military, and trained master technicians at Peterson Air Force Base. 

Elvis is a consultant, lecturer and hands-on instructor for Thermoplastic Comfort Systems, Inc. He has traveled across the United States and Europe teaching and sharing his experience on TCS Partials.
