About Us


Francesca Kahler - CEO / Founder

Francesca holds 20+ years in the dentistry knowledge and experience dating back to 1997. Over the course of her career she has gained in-depth insight into the needs and demands of the dental laboratory and dental practice industries.

Originally commencing her career as a Dental Assistant, Francesca quickly found her desire to continually challenge herself grow stronger, following in the footsteps of her mentors by becoming a Regional Manager of a Large Dental Corporation overseeing 4 practices 90+ employees.

It was here where Francesca gained valuable experience working both chair-side and in a leadership management position working directly with dental offices and labs throughout Ontario, to build ‘The Most Cost-Effective Staffing Solution For Dental Laboratories & Dental Practices Across Canada’ – DENTECH DIRECT.

After consulting with various labs, technicians and RDT’s, it was at this point that Dentech Direct was both envisioned and brought to life! Bringing over 20 years of experience within dentistry, she plans to provide a service that will fulfill this need. 

Her passion for business and most importantly helping people was the foundation of forming this placement agency.

"I have an opportunity to provide the highest level of service to the dental labs in our community and surrounding areas. I love what I do. It is very rewarding to me. My favourite aspect of my job is to aid the candidates in securing a long-term placement; and knowing you had a part in changing someone’s life and future"
