We love learning about the people behind the Instagram accounts. We have been following the adventures of @RVAtoothfairy for a while. There we can see the beautiful full arch zirconia that she obviously puts a lot of work into. But it wasn’t until we talked to her that we learned so much more she has done in our industry. Marithe Baclagon wanted to be a dentist and remembers the exact moment when the laboratory side of it became her passion. After attending a dental technology school and working at a lab, she went back to the school to help develop and create the digital dentistry program. Now she’s at a private practice using all the latest technology and teaching other technicians, dentists, and staff how to produce the best full arch restoration using the best materials.

Does your lab use Magic Touch? If not, you should think about switching just so you can use icortica. Icortica is a program that uses all the data you already collect in Magic Touch and puts it in one easy to see, use, and understand dashboard. Look at every account and see trends, sales, notes, payments, and even remake percentages. Use the data you already have to take your lab and your customer service to the next level. Elvis uses it daily and swears it is a huge part to his success working at the lab. Head over to icortica.com/voices to learn more or send an email to Rob Nazzal at rob@icortica.com and tell him you heard about it on Voices From the Bench!
