Jason Gleason Director, Esthetics and CAD/CAM Operations

Jason began his career in dentistry at the age of 16 by volunteering in the dental laboratory at Ft. Hamilton Veteran’s Hospital. After graduating high school, he attended the New York City Technical College and majored in Dental Laboratory Technology.

After a few brief stints in various small laboratories, Jason began working at Americus Dental Laboratories where he became the youngest manager in the company’s history. Eventually, he created the Pressable Ceramics Department to address the growing interest in the newest materials at the time. His knack for identifying and understanding the ever-developing new technologies helped Jason to become knowledgeable and active in researching the latest dental materials and sciences.

During his 11 year tenure with Americus, Jason served as manager of the Pressable Ceramics, Crown and Bridge and Ultimate Esthetics departments. He has written and published several articles, been certified by the manufacturers of dozens of materials, and lectured on product sciences to everyone from dentists to graduating dental laboratory students at his alma mater.

Since joining the YES! team in 2009 as a Senior Product Specialist, Jason has helped guide dentists through the myriad of material choices available for every case. He takes pride in his case planning skills as well as his ability to guide technicians through the more difficult aspects of fabrication. Currently, he oversees all CAD/CAM, pressable, all-ceramic and diagnostic cases at YES! and can often be found talking with doctors about specific patients and ideal treatment protocols.

Jason is a total Beatlemaniac and also enjoys playing the guitar and building automata models.
