  • I would love to hear other technicians take on this. I have tried many different approaches but it still seems random when I get a really good glaze on an eMax crown.

  • I have a new client that "loves " the double impression technique ...however we are his third pick of laboratory because they can't seem to give him consistent results...they do not see the contraindication for this tech.At best it is inconsistent esp. in the fabrication of bridges.As a ceramist of 30 yrs I cringe when I see this ..it has been my experience that the finished restoration presents short,tight frames and high occlusions. The first rx we received asked for TEN coats of die spacer.which was so telling.If you have any advice on how to treat these cases I am open.However I have never...See more — tagged Crown and Bridge

  • Your checklist for optimizing search terms:

    We have covered this topic in some of the earlier posts but I thought I would touch on it again in a more practical approach. Many dental labs use their websites as a gallery, contact info, introduction to the lab tool and for many they all achieve this goal, put some content on it and some photo's and presto! And for the most part it does suffice when their current dentists forget the lab phone number or need an email address. For all the other dentists in your target market (remember that term it's very important) how are they supposed to find you...See more

    The Best B-to-B Email Marketing Practices

    We hear e-mail marketing is becoming obsolete and social networking is morphing into the medium of choice for online communication. But in the B-to-B community, it hasn’t happened yet.

    So, what are some of the best practices in B-to-B e-mail marketing today?

    A. E-lists

    To begin, instead of renting lists and sending emails to cold prospects, get people to opt-in to your e-list. Then concentrate on email marketing to your house file.

    Emails to house file lists generates two to three times the click through rate (CTR) or higher than outside lists....See more

  • Bur of the week: Every laboratory should promote dentists to use this special bur: The AD20C, for occlussal reduction; not only will it make laboratory life easier but it will create accurate spacing for dentists when working with crown and bridges!

  • Jack Jabbour · CEO/General Manager at Vision Dental Laboratory, Inc.

    Hi everyone!! first of all thanks to LMT for creating "the bridge" which seems to be a professional "facebook" of the dental technology world. LMT is great, and just want to show appreciation for them!!

    I am the owner of a crown and bridge lab that employs 5 technician in ohio and am looking to hire a commission based sales person to attract new clients. Does anyone have any good ideas or experience on this subject. Im not exactly sure how to go about it, and wage etc....

    any help would be appreciated. thanks and look forward to meeting a bunch of you thru the bridge!

  • Robert C. Loehr · Owner at Allure Dental Lab

    I do all my own crown and bridge work and do not outsource MY crowns. I have one multi associate practice for the lion share of my business. I do everything from full arch uppers, Cosmetic multi unit Zirconia ( Procera and or Cercon ) singles. Things go so smooth with this place I am spoiled when I get accounts and see BAD, BAD dentistry even for single units that the dentist would like to restore.
    I feel bad for the patients when the preps look like Lego blocks preparation design. I just cant figure out why some dentists cant get there heads out of there asses and just do good preps and better...See more
