Our Team


Our First Impressions team is made up of over 20 dental technicians with an overall combined 248 years of technical experience. We believe in creating quality products that demonstrate the level of skill and craftsmanship put into each case.


Although our products have fast turnaround times, we do not cut corners and instead produce 100% in-house. We invest our resources into researching and using the most current dental technologies, such as injection based removables, zirconia milling machines, etc. This gives our team, company, and brand the pride that is seen in our work.

We also believe in giving back to communities and helping out in anyway possible.

Jon Younce was born and raised in Lenoir, NC. He moved to Durham, NC to attend the Dental Laboratory Program. He went on to graduate from Durham Tech in 1988 where he earned his Dental Laboratory Technician degree. 


In 1999, after working in several labs across North Carolina, Jon opened First Impressions Dental Laboratory in his hometown of Lenoir. 

His friendly and helpful attitude, along with his team of diverse dental technicians, has attracted many doctors to

First Impressions. This has allowed his business to grow and maintain relationships through the years. Jon believes that taking the time to listen to doctors and their needs provides the personal touch that sets First Impressions apart from other labs.
