About this Episode

Happy Labor Day 2020. I think most can agree that we deserve a day off. But let's talk about a little tool that has taken a lot of the manual labor out of dental labs over the years. As digital workflow grew and expanded, mills became a necessary piece of equipment. But inside these workhorses are the true "laborers'', the burs. These small, yet crucial pieces allow most labs to do what they do all day long. Greg Everett and Nick Alonge with Sierra Dental Tool come on to talk about their journey to making burs. These two bring a passion stronger than just selling burs. They bring years of lab experience and the desire to help any lab that needs assistance. But who wouldn't want a bur that last up to 10x as long. It's all about how you make or "GROW" them. If you have a mill, you don't want to miss this episode.
