On August 27th many brave and fearless dental technicians will take to the water and road to participate in the 2023 Chicago Triathlon. They don't do it for fame or personal gain, but to raise money for the Foundation For Dental Laboratory Technology.
PLEASE head over to dentallabfoundation.org and click the DONATE TODAY button. Log in and choose the “Race for the Future” option. There you can put the name of a racer you want to sponsor. You can put:
Team Abutments (Elvis Dahl, Mark Williamson, Bobby Kennedy)
Voices From the Bench (50/50 split between Barb and Elvis' team)
This week we talk about the underappreciated model room technicians that make the foundation of everything we make possible. Marsha Mais found herself in a dental laboratory. They put her where they put everyone when they start, the model room. Marsha loved it. She was good at it. Unfortunately she saw that she did not get the respect and appreciation that many other technicians got. Marsha talks about her journey, some really neat tricks she has picked up over the years, and how we (as a industry) can do better showing love to the hard working people that is the "frontline" to all the analog (and sometimes digital) work coming in.
