About this Episode

Two brothers with extensive dental experience put together Blender for Dental, an affordable alternative to the other design software in our industry. Brothers Wolfgang & Michael Teiniker learned the craft in South Africa. Wolfgang continued his career in Germany, and then they connected again in New Zealand. You can say they know a thing of two about dental technology. Michael started to play around with a program called Blender. It wasn't long before he realized that it could be used in the dental lab industry. Now they are both exclusively working on and maintaining Blender for Dental to offer a design software made by technicians for technicians.
