We LOVE meeting new people as shows and we LOVE hearing stories of labs being successful. This week brings two more conversations that we got while at the Ivoclar table at LMT Lab Day West 2023. First up is Chad Brox from Performance Dental Lab near the strip in Las Vegas. Chad talks about being a 3rd generation lab owner, growing up in the lab, and what he is looking for at Lab Day. Then we chat with Eddie Corrales, who has a unique lab with an interesting workflow. His lab CAD Smiles is known for going into an office, using their software, mills, and material can create a full smile same day. Eddie talks about discovering this service, traveling the world, and helping doctors sell cases.
