About this Episode

We love it when we have a guest on and we get surprised with all the amazing things they do. Daniel Alter did just that. We knew he was a teacher at the New York City College of Technology restorative department and did something with IDT magazine, but as the conversation unfolded, Daniel's passion for our industry was strong. Daniel talks about learning the craft and opening a lab, taking that desire to learn more and passing it on to students, and how he stays relevant in an industry that always seems to be changing.
