DR. ANTHONY S. PODROW
Founder & President
Dr. Anthony S. Podrow grew up in the West Los Angeles Area. He attended Los Angeles Valley College and California State University, Northridge for his undergraduate degree and graduated from Georgetown University, School of Dentistry (in Washington, D.C,) in 1979 with the DDS degree.
In 1980 he moved to British Columbia, Canada and soon after began a solo family dental practice. He retired in 2013 after 32 successful and personally satisfying years in the same office.
In 2002 Dr. Podrow was diagnosed with glaucoma, which had been controlled up until 2013 through eye drops, medications and some surgical procedures. Eventually, he lost the central vision of his left eye within a matter of about three weeks and, along with it, his 3D perception, necessitating the sale of his practice. This issue has made him acutely aware of the need for proper eye protection to be available; and the need for every dentist to make certain that they use it! In his research and development phase of creating Ease-In-Shields™, Dr. Podrow learned of several colleagues who, rather than forgoing the use of their magnification loupes, chose to forgo the required eye protection! He feels strongly that this is a sure recipe for disaster, and has made the manufacture of this product seem like a “moral obligation”!
Dr. Podrow was compelled to create Ease-In-Shields™ when he purchased a dental laser and found that the accompanying safety goggles and safety glasses could not be used with dental magnification loupes! When a simple and effective solution to this problem could not be found, Dr. Podrow created his own and realized that there was a great need for this easy to use, protective and elegant product in the dental field.
