About this Episode

When Christina Heaslip from Digital Dental Laboratory and Jill Swafford from Oaks Dental Design went to dental conventions they noticed a lack of female speakers. Both running successful digital labs, they started a group called Ladies of the Mill. The group "was established to give a space to women in the Dental Lab industry". Over the years the group has grown in popularity and is now getting ready to have their first summit July 23-24, 2021 in Chattanooga, Tn. The Summit is titled "Refresh, Reflect & Recharge" and features our industry's first ever 100% female speaker line-up. They come on the podcast to talk about how they started their labs, how they balance the lab life and family life, why and how the idea of Ladies of the Mill got started, and what exciting things are happening at the summit that will make it different than the usual show.
