Elvis had a chance to speak at the Eastern Conference of Dental Laboratories and he can't go anywhere without bring some headphone mics and record some great conversations. This episode is the first of many featuring people he talked to at the Eastern Conference of Dental Laboratories. First up is "funny man" Donnie Bridges CDT from the Argen Corporation. Donnie talks about growing up in the lab, working for Argen, and because he is from Tupelo, Mississippi they had to talk about the real Elvis. Then Elvis talks with Joshua Fitzgerald who is a one person fix lab owner that has been growing with the digital times and gets most of his work from Facebook.
