Ever since he was a child he has been involved in Dentistry. His father Moises Polanco and Mother Kelly Cascante owned a dental clinic and operated an in-house dental laboratory in Ecuador. His family left Ecuador in 1990 and came to the United States seeking new opportunities and start a new life. In 2003 he graduated from New York City College of Technology with a BS Degree in Computer Systems Technology.

He is one of the few technician fabricating telescopic implant bridges such as the Deutsch Telescopic Bridge Zr. in the US. Sander saw the challenges that many of his colleagues had in the area of digital dentistry so he started holding trainings, Lectures and courses on 3shape, blueskybio, meshmixer and various other top dental software. As the field went more digital he saw the need to bring together a group of some of the top CAD/CAM technicians and dentists around the world to help other technicians quickly transition into this new era of Digital Dentistry.
