About this Episode

We all know how hard it is to find good, talented, and knowledgeable removable technicians. Even when good candidates get into the field, it's not an easy skill to train. Enter the Swiss School of Prosthetics. Steffen Rohrbach came to America with a German degree in dental technology and after a time in the Army, Steffen connected with Edmonds Dental Prosthetics in Springfield, Missouri. With a passion and desire to train their technicians, they decided they also wanted to "raise the bar" in the whole industry on removable prosthetics. Connecting with Candulor, Steffen and Edmonds built a facility for the first Swiss School of Prosthetics in the US. Steffen talks about the journey becoming a teacher and what the courses have to offer to fellow labs and technicians.
