About this Episode

Barb got held up at her lab over the weekend, Elvis is solo on this one. While at the Eastern Conference of Dental Laboratories Elvis took a break from speaking and recording to bring two conversations he got while at the Whip Mix Digital Forum back in early October. First up is the man, Denture Dan Elfring. He sits down to talk about his start back in the Air Force, working in a in-office laboratory, and being a SUPER Master CDT. Then Elvis is joined by the only identical twin laboratory owners Elise Holasek and Anita Cranford, both CDTs, who co-own a lab but their story on how they get into the industry is not a common one. Join us from Whip Mix’s Digital Forum.
