Dr. Dragan is the first generation son of immigrant parents who came from Eastern Europe to America to make a better life. He grew up in a blue-collar neighborhood of Bridgeport, Connecticut, at the tail end of the Great Depression and throughout World War II. In those years he not only learned the value of hard work and perseverance, but he also saw the inventiveness of his father in dealing with hard times and difficult circumstances.
Dr. Dragan went to college and studied dentistry and began his dental practice. But he also had a love of tinkering and invention that merged with the entrepreneurial spirit he had witnessed in his father. Dentistry and invention crossed paths when Dr. Dragan began to create products to improve the implementation of evolving dental materials.
Centrix was founded by Dr. Dragan to develop, produce, and promote those inventions. Today Centrix is a company of over one hundred employees with worldwide distribution. Among its better known products are CR Syringe System, Benda Brush, Needletube and Retrac. Creating and keeping a company involves a great deal more than simply making and distributing the product, and possibly the greatest achievement can't be written in statistics: Dr. Dragan and Centrix survived their journey from innocence to experience in today's business world.
Dr. Dragan also continued his dental studies and earned several professional fellowships while developing and nurturing his fledgling company.
After forty-plus years as a dentist and founder of Centrix, he has recently completely retired from his active dental practice. This does not mean he retired; he simply changed jobs to become a full-time entrepreneur. His story may sound like fiction -- it isn't!Review:
