Welcome Back, Removables

Kim Molinaro · Labs & Profiles · Nov 2010

  • After six months of research on the removables market, Lab President Warren Rogers (far left) knew the time was right for re-entry and appointed longtime manager, Scott Pincus, CDT, head of the new department. Experienced in C&B, Pincus relied on the expertise of two of the lab’s biggest suppliers—Ivoclar Vivadent and Dentsply Prosthetics—for his initial training in removables.

  • The laboratory expects removables sales to grow by 25% this year thanks, in part, to its launch of Reflections, the lab’s most esthetic denture line featuring Ivoclar’s Ivocap injection system and SRPhonares teeth.

  • Knight Dental Group trains its removable technicians through hands-on instruction, PTC’s denture training modules and denture courses at Ivoclar Vivadent’s Implant Esthetics Center of Excellence (IECE) in Sarasota, FL, which is located only about an hour from the laboratory

  • To open the new department, the laboratory spent over $100,000, including $12,000 on building improvements, to create a burnout and casting room and install plumbing and electric.
