Imagine having to teach over 80 students partial design during covid. That is exactly what Dr. Wendy Clark had to do. Heading up the Pre-doctoral Removable Prosthodontics at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, Dr. Clark knew she needed something that the school could afford and would allow for remote lessons. She leaned on her longtime friend and lab technician, Craig Holland. Craig is no stranger to odd and unusual cases, but during the shutdown, Craig found the time from his usual work at 3 Point Dental Studio to self-teach himself coding. Along with his son, CJ Holland, the two used the Blender software and modified it to give Dr. Clark what she needed. This free and open software called Excalibur can do models, custom trays, dies, flippers, nightguards, crown and bridges, and much more.

The fastest growing product at Gro3X are the Gro3X Aligners. Gro3X Aligners are only available from Gro3X Aligner certified labs: Why? 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. Look for a Gro3X Aligner certified lab near you, such as Castle Dental Lab in San Antonio, TX (ask for Blaine), AMK Dental Lab in O’Neill, NE (ask for Anne), Staggs Dental Lab in McCoole Maryland (ask for Derrick), AA Dental Design in Murrieta, CA (ask for Frankie), and many, many more… For a complete listing of Gro3X Aligner Certified Labs go to
