We finally got a chance to take the podcast to the west coast. That's right, hanging out with the good people of Ivoclar, we set up the gear and talked to a ton of great people at LMT Lab Day West. This week we bring you two great conversations from that show. First up is Calvin Song from Creodent. Calvin talks about his role, helping to grow labs with their milling service, and how he is having to fight New York on them trying to make labs collect sales tax on veneers because they are considered cosmetic and not clinically needed. Then 3shape "advanced user" stops by, Sevan Pulurian from Pacific Dental Lab. Sevan talks about the 3shape study group on Facebook, what's new with version 23, and his quick thinking at Cal-Lab when an hour presentation became an hour and 45 minutes.
