I have a lab in a dental building that service 6 to 8 doctors, recently they have decided to get together and buy the E4D scanning and milling units. they want me to oversee the milling and stain/glaze...See more , but obviously these systems are designed to all but eliminate there lab fees, I think I will be looking for new clients outside the building.
I would like to do the stain/glaze work as I think the Emax material is great but does any one have any experience incorporating in house milling systems, fees , etc.
These system's are marketed very aggressively, at $120,000 the salesmen's commission is good ,the dentist can recover the costs in a couple of years and the systems and material really are quit good and will only get better.
Any information/ideas are welcome, I have to go and re invent myself now.
According to LMT's 2013 Dentist Survey, 42% of dentist-respondents say they likely will invest in a digital impression-taking system within several years. In contrast, 63% of respondents have no plans to purchase a chairside CAD/CAM system in the near future.
