A Passion for Dentistry: The Keating Dental Lab Story

Shaun Keating explains how his team’s passion for dentistry, known as the Keating Difference, has helped dentists choose Keating Dental Lab.

Meet Shaun Keating, CDT

If you knew Shaun Keating when he was a teenager in Huntington Beach, California in the late ’70s, it probably wouldn’t be a surprise to discover he heads up one of the biggest dental laboratories in the United States. Using custom-made football mouthguards, fabricated by his brother while attending dental school, Shaun became very curious about the dental industry.

When his brother became head of his senior class at the University of Southern California’s dental school, Shaun was inspired to pursue a career of his own in the industry. It clearly proved to be a good decision, as he quickly rose through the ranks from waxer and metal finisher to dental ceramist until becoming the Crown and Bridge Manager for a major laboratory.

Lab Owner

Keating Dental Lab and Community Leadership

From there, the next step was logical: start his own laboratory. Founding Keating Dental Lab in 2002, Shaun emphasized attention to detail in all aspects of the business and building positive relationships. This focus has served Keating Dental Lab very well. His lab’s eye for detail, personalized relationships and demand for the highest level of craftsmanship established Keating Dental Lab as a dominant force in the dental industry, developing the Keating Dental Zirconia (KDZ) family of restorative materials.

As an established force in the industry, Shaun also prides himself on his devotion to serving his family and his community. He’s served as a Little League and Youth Football coach for years, while sponsoring several local charities. He frequently contributes restorative work to dentists who serve disadvantaged children, battered women, the mentally ill and traumatized.
