Alright. Now that we have all the important links out of the way, we can get to the episode that is all about the links. The Foundation for Dental Laboratory Technology is an organization that raises money for the continuing education in our industry. The person that keeps it on track is Lindsey Rowan. Lindsey comes on the podcast to talk about the history of the race, where the money goes, and details about this year’s race. She also talks about the FDLT's first ever FREE Education Day that is happening the same weekend. Joining us also on the episode are two of the educators. Arian Deutsch from Deutsch Dental Arts and Tony Prestipino from Artifex Dental Lab come on to talk about their presentation and how easy it is to be peer pressured into participating in the race.

Come for the FREE education. Come for the Race. Donate to a good cause.

And because we can never have enough education and updates, we wrap up the whole episode with Bennett Napier from the National Association of Dental laboratories who gives us a much needed update on our industry (it's positive!), an exciting and much needed change to the CDT certification, and information on one of our favorite meetings, the NADL University.

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
