The shirts and hoodies are BACK! Back in January we sold "Dental Technicians: Making Dentist Look Good since the 1700s" shirts for Lab Day. So many people asked us to bring them back, so we did! Get them here before April 18!

We have even more conversations this week from the Ivolcar Ballroom at LMT Lab Day Chicago 2024 with:

James "The Denture Man" Angelone Jr and James Angelone III talking about being at the Smart Denture Conversion booth all weekend, why they don't do "Big Hole" conversions anymore, teaching the next generation, and using Ivotion dentures.

Ivoclar's premier educator, Patrick Coon, stops by to talk about his history in the Air Force, on boarding with Ivoclar, being moved up to Digital Consultant, and some exciting things Ivoclar is working on.

Then a special unexpected guest sits down, Peggy Alexander. Peggy is 87 years young and talks about the struggles of becoming a female dentist in the 50s, getting into teaching at the University of Texas, the importance of working with your lab, and life after retirement (which she hasn’t even happened yet).
