About this Episode

What a terrible week for our world, country, and industry. More and more states enacted the "Stay-at-Home" mandate and dentist seeing only emergency patients, the labs are getting next to no work. We hear every day of layoffs, Furloughs, and closings. It is sad but at the same time important that when the COVID-19 virus starts to "die off", that we are more than ready to get back to being the growing industry that we were just a few months ago. To update us of what the dental laboratory industry needs to know is once again Bennett Napier from the NADL.

CDC Update for Dental March 27, 2020

To keep a sense of normalcy in our lives, we continue with the original conversations we were going to bring you. This week brings three interviews we got at the Voices of Dentistry thanks to our good friends at Kettenbach. First us is Dr. Brad Mattison who talks about his practice, his relationship with his labs, and tools he uses to communicate with them. Then we are joined by Chris Felix from BlueLight Analytics who talks about how curing lights in the office and in your lab might be why some remakes happen. Then we talk to Kristin Jensen from Enova Illumination who gives us ideas for lights and lopes in the lab.
