The lower floor was turned into an office where Samuel practiced dentistry and a showroom to display the products being made in his attic factory.
Business flourished and relocated several times to larger facilities in the Philadelphia area. Sales offices were opened in New York, Boston and Chicago. In addition, the company established a system of selling to dealers to better serve the dentist
