About this Episode

We hear about dental offices having a in-office dental lab, but what we don't hear enough is a dental lab in a dentist office doing what they are doing at Family Dental Associates in Georgia. Dr. Jack Bell is sailing the vessel as Patch Garcia (Excel Dental Lab) is the crew that every successful dentist needs. Together they are leading the digital workflow and providing top-of-the-line restorations to the "land lovers'' in the south. Hoisting the flag when a full arch is seated, they truly are "Bad To The Bone Dental".
