EDUCATION


Sean Fahmi graduated Agoura High School in 2001 and subsequently attended UC Santa Barbara.  As a Guacho,  he double majored in Business Economics and accounting.  Sean has also partaken in numerous personal growth and business programs to futher advance himself professionally.  He is an avid reader and loves to constantly learn. 



PROFFESIONAL  


Upon completion of his bachelors, Sean Fahmi followed Sean followed his heart and began to walk the path of an entreprenuer with an all-in mindest.  


For nearly a year, Sean worked tirelessly 7 days a week, making ends meet on weekends parking cars as a valet at Saks Fifth Avenue in Santa Barbara (to this day, it's his favorite job) and interning at his cousins dental practice in Manhattan Beach, California.  His goal was to learn about Dentistry, particularly the business side.    


During this time, Sean fell in love with cosmetic & restorative dentistry and more specifically the laborotory and milling (Cerec) side of things.   This led to an opportunity to partner with a US trained dental tech, with the plan of starting a lab in Vietnam.  At the time,  the Dental Lab production method was heavily labor intensive (and expensive), so this seemed like a great idea on paper. As a result, the initial version of DentalWorks, LLC was formed and Sean spent the next two years going back and forth to Vietnam to help with the business side of production there and with business development here in the States.  


After struggeling to meet the US quality standard consistently, Sean deciced a mostly US based production model combined with a China outsource model for non-precious PFM would be best.  Sean spent the next three years building the company to a million dollar annualized level.  However, the labor intensive aspect of the lab made difficult to sustain consistancy and long term profit.  As a result, Sean decided a change would be best. The experience he gained was invaluable as he formed a strong clinical foundation along with a deep knowledge about lab technology. 


Still with the long term plan of building a successful company in mind, Sean sought to further improve his knowledge and took a corporate job as a territory specialist in the San Fernando Valley for Align Technology, the makers of Invisalign. During his nearly 6 years working for Align, Sean was promoted three times and earned numerous performance awards.  He was ultimatly trusted to manage and grow the most prestegious territory in the company, Beverly Hills & Santa Monica, where he enjoyed his most success.

Sean is happily married to his dream girl and soulmate for over 10 years.  In his spare time he enjoys playing basketball, hiking, mountain running, and swimming & boogie boarding in the ocean.
