About this Episode

From working with zirconia that gets sintered by the trainload to working with it in a dental lab, Chris Bradley is not a stranger to the dental laboratory industry. In 2008 she partnered with a dental laboratory instrument manufacturer out of Switzerland and started Smile Line USA. Chris talks about the different porcelain mixing trays, what make a good porcelain brush good, the 80's colors of the United Colors of D. Vinci, and a super cool accessory for your phone to take your photography to the next level. This year she introduces the smartest thing we have seen in a long time. The "My Bench Box" is a fantastic program that allows technicians to try anything before they commit to buying it.

Have you seen the CUREBox Plus from Whip Mix yet? This highly effective yet affordable light-curing unit is ideal for most printed resins on the market. The economically priced curing box uses a specific wavelength and intensity light source, time control, and temperature control to polymerize (cure) dental resin materials. The unit’s glasswork surface features diffuse reflectors, which improve light transmission uniformity to the bottom of the model, and its maximum temperature of 80˚C provides increased compatibility with medical device 3D print resins. It also provides faster heating.

The glove-friendly, easy-to-use touchscreen includes status indicators for heat, lamps, and the door to the large capacity chamber and it features One-touch presets, customizable settings, a timer (5 Minutes - 12 Hours), a temperature controller (30 - 80˚C), and an auto-start and shut down mode.
