The founder of Excel Studios is back with his own Signature Select ceramic line. Charles Moreno is a renowned Master Ceramist, a Fellow of the AACD. The purpose of the Signature Select is to create a modern natural smile that meets the demands of a VIP Patient, AACD Accreditation, and Fellowship.

Charles Moreno has helped over 25 AACD members pass their Accreditation and Fellowship process. He is one of eight in the world to be part of this exclusive group of Fellows in the AACD, the hardest and highest level a dental technician can accomplish.

The Signature Select line is a service for all Dentists that aspire to create and deliver a truly superior quality of work for their patients – far above and beyond the average work available in commercial laboratories.


Originally from Geneva, Switzerland, Charles Moreno graduated from the Dental Technology Program at the University of Texas San Antonio School of Dentistry in 1989. He became a C.D.T. in Dental Ceramics in 1990 and worked and studied with some of the leading contemporary ceramists like Asami Tanaka, Claude Sieber and Klaus Mutherties. He founded Excel Dental Studios in 1995, in Encino, CA, as a high-end boutique laboratory dedicated to the highest esthetic and functional standards for discriminating practitioners worldwide. In his journey to grow as a ceramist, he has attended countless meetings, seminars, lectures including European Academy of Esthetic Dentistry, American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry, Quintessence Symposiums, and American Academy of Micro Dentistry. Charles has lectured regularly on dental esthetics, smile design, photography and laboratory technology, dental ceramics and more. His ceramic work has been published in leading esthetic journals and dental technology magazines. He was on the Board of Directors of the AACD, headed several Committees, and was featured as a Top Educator in Dentistry Today two years in a row. He has helped over 25 Dentists achieve AACD Accreditation and Fellowship, but above all his passion is to help any Dentist at any level in their Dentistry to create beautiful and lasting smile transformations! His hobbies include nature, kiteboarding, motorcycles, fitness, and especially being the father of a 9 year old princess.
