About this Episode

Back in July, there was a meeting called the Ladies of the Mill Summit. This yearly meeting is all about celebrating and supporting females in the dental laboratory industry. Full of motivating and inspiring speakers, Elvis got to record with a bunch of attendees at the Preat booth. First up is half of the owners of Likelike Dental Studios, Carrie Ling. Carrie talks about getting their lab started in a shed, growing it with her husband, and where they are at now. Then we talk to two technicians from Renstrom Dental Studio, Sandra Nohava and Courtney Bennett. These two talk about the different labs they worked at, the unique way they connected and then connected again at their current lab, and why they came to the Ladies of the Mill Summit. Then Elvis walks away from the recording gear to let 5 technicians have their own conversation. Dani Farago, MacKenzie Mayer, Katie Boteler, Nina Frketin, & Jenelle Tabakovic talk about themselves, the industry, the meeting, and the power of encouraging each other. It’s a ladies takeover of the podcast.
