Don't hate on the CAD/CAM department for keeping such good hours...especially on Friday. That's what that equipment is purchased for! #efficiency :^)
Casting Crowns....The Lumineers....suddenly dental tech has become band names. What would your band name be? I think mine would be Gutta-Percha...or maybe Silicone Matrix. :^)
Hi Chris, thank you for your input. We are looking to do both receiving, designing an milling our own cases. We like the connect network with cerec dr's users that sirona offers. Don't know if any other systems offer that. I have to mention that as of 2 years ago we transform from crown and bridge lab into all service lab. As of now we design our own partials and outsource them to local lab. As well as with full dentures we do set ups and have someone else process them. It would be great to send digital files to partial people that way we can control design part of it. According to Sirona rep...See more we sirona is closed system and we wouldn't be able to do this if we go with them. Thank you again , Alisa
Want to find out if you have a serious potential partner to outsource work to? Try the "Contact Us" link on their website. Want to gauge how eager you are to respond to new business (MAKE $)? Check your own "Contact us" response time. For some labs it's just a website decoration. — tagged Networking
I overheard one of the most dreaded comments from custom shade patient yesterday: "I'm an artist. I want to be involved in the shade/design of my crown" The ceramist walked out of the room with the look of "Ugggh!" written all over her face. lol
Never promote people based on tenure. You end up with managers who can't manage. Your organization is only as good as those appointing the talent.
I am currently using Ceramage opaq on Ti. Not too crazy about it...the application goes on pretty thick. What is everyone using out there? Thanks! :)
