Dental labwork for you and your career will be predominantly digital. Unlike before when layering porcelain with intrinsic stains was common practice, now it predominantly mills the crown, stain, and glaze. Machines, instead of highly trained technicians, will be doing most of the work. We saw this trend back in 2000 when we were the first to purchase CEREC in a lab in New England. Also unique to us, our system was created by a master dental technician, Edie Touron, and a master dentist, Dr. Jeffrey Cummings.
We want to help the young dentist understand what is involved in fabricating and delivering multi-unit cosmetic dentistry and reconstructive dentistry. These cases are routine for us because of our system and experience. Young dentists struggle to understand how to deliver this type of care predictably. Additionally, we believe they would benefit from learning more about what is involved so that they could decide if they want to make the commitment to go down the path. It is not easy!
We provide free educational seminars for recent graduates, within the last 6 years, to introduce really what is involved to do this type of work. The seminar is very informal. We meet at our lab where we present a power point presentation on smile design, clinical and lab procedures and business systems necessary to deliver this type of care. It takes about 2 hours using an open forum model for questions and refreshments are served. For more information, call Edie Touron.
