The Foundation for Dental Laboratory Technology: Race For the Future 8.0 August 28th

Most technicians are very dedicated and passionate about what they do. That is what makes our industry so amazing. But sometimes there is a technician that we run into that is so passionate that it really stands out and shows really how amazing we are. Nicole Jackson came into this industry be seeing a patient reaction getting a crown. Finding a school in her area in Milwaukee, Nicole graduated and started in a lab. It wasn’t long before she was changing workflows and increasing productivity. After a few labs a opportunity came about to go back to the school that started it all and run the program. Nicole is now the Lead faculty and program chair of the dental technician program at Milwaukee Area Technical College. This is her story.

Because they believe in the synergies that are being created between you, the dental office, and your lab. And they want to further leverage these synergies. Their aligners are used as a pre-treatment to a larger restorative esthetic case, to widen gaps prior to placing implants, to close a diastema, ease crowding, and simply enhance your patient’s smiles. Even for your Essix retainer needs your Gro3X aligner certified lab can help.
