ALVA was founded 12 years ago with a simple mission: Provide treatment tables, facial bed chairs and related equipment that is affordable and aesthetically pleasing to enhance your practice. You see, ALVA’s President Dan Edwards and his wife Dr. Robin Su–Edwards D.D.S. have owned a dental practice for over 30 years. During that time, they made a few key observations that have lead to the creation of ALVA as it stands today.
First, there has been a growing demand for treatment plans that emphasize aesthetics along with functionality. This trend is apparent across the spectrum of health, beauty and wellness as our aging population strives for sustained quality of life.
Second, the patient/client experience is dominated by time spent in a chair or on a table. Third, those chairs and tables are often prohibitively expensive and finally, they are often too clinical looking and uncomfortable.
With a long career as a corporate executive, Dan knew that in creating ALVA he wanted a simple business that would say what it was going to do and then do just that – meet its commitments. In Dan’s own words, “Today’s commerce has evolved towards an online world. Efficient logistics and low prices are great, but where is the product expert? Where is the friendly voice on the other end of the phone that will work with you to solve problems?”
