Scott Huge, President & CEO
Digital technology is changing the orthodontic industry. Since 2006, Specialty Appliances has been recognized as the leading digital orthodontic laboratory. We believe there is more to "being digital" than just owning a 3D printer. Specialty is developing new standards for the future through strategic partnerships with innovative orthodontists and leading CAD software companies.
Scott established Specialty Appliances in 1981 in Michigan and moved to its current location near Atlanta, Georgia in 1983. Working closely with orthodontists around the world, Scott works daily with the development and fabrication of orthodontic appliances.
