When Christina Heaslip from Digital Dental Laboratory (http://www.digitaldentallabs.com/) and Jill Swafford from Oaks Dental Design (https://www.oaksdentaldesigns.com/) went to dental conventions they noticed a lack of female speakers. Both running successful digital labs, they started a group called Ladies of the Mil (https://www.ladiesofthemill.com/)l. The group "was established to give a space to women in the Dental Lab industry". Over the years the group has grown in popularity and is now getting ready to have their first summit July 23-24, 2021 in Chattanooga, Tn. The Summit is titled "Refresh, Reflect & Recharge" and features our industry's first ever 100% female speaker line-up. They come on the podcast to talk about how they started their labs, how they balance the lab life and family life, why and how the idea of Ladies of the Mill got started, and what exciting things are happening at the summit that will make it different than the usual show.

The biggest magazine in our industry, LMT (https://lmtmag.com/), did a feature called "40 Under 40" that featured different people in our industry that are making a difference. After seeing a few being congratulated on social media, we reached out to two of them to find out more about their great accomplishments.

Larry Wiess from Weiss Advisors (https://weissadvisorsstl.com/) started a company to help other labs after his time with Keller Dental Lab and NDX. Larry has taken his years of experience to assist labs that needed the extra, "outside" help to either prepare for sale or to increase productivity. Jim Gorgol from Distinctive Dental Studio (https://www.ddsltdlab.com/) is looking at eventually retiring. Jim wants to make sure that he can do that comfortably but wants to also make sure that the employees are left in a good spot too. They talk about determining the ultimate goal, setting up milestones along the way, and the type of processes they put in place to reach that goal. Whip Mix (https://www.whipmix.com/)’s new Veriwash (https://www.whipmix.com/products/veriwash/) resin cleaning station is the ideal piece of equipment to use in the 3D printed resin post process. It’s oscillating, multi-speed stirrer produces a tornado-like vortex every 30-seconds, and guarantees efficient, effective and powerful cleaning whether the units are individual or still attached to the build plate.

Do you know a technician that just started? Working in the model room or opaquing crowns? That person could be the next CEO of a global network of labs. We welcome Laura Kelly who had a similar story. She started at Microdental Laboratories (https://www.microdental.com/) not knowing what a dental lab was and has worked hard to become it's CEO. Along they way she became the first female and the first technician to be the president of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) (https://aacd.com/) and owned her own lab that grew to be purchased by another lab group. She talks about what MicroDental stands for, how they dealt with the pandemic shutdown, and how they came out of it strong.

What do you call a group of technicians in Texas? The first successful lab meeting of the year! That's right, back in late March the Dental Laboratory Association of Texas (DLAT) (http://dlat.org/) held their annual conference. It was also the first in-person dental lab meeting of 2021. While we couldn't be there, our good friends at Argen (https://argen.com/#/) set up a laptop, microphone, and some speakers so we could record remotely from their booth. Local Argen rep and all around rockstar Keith Wilson kept us busy bringing by so many great people at the show. This week we have conversations from 5 wonderful attendees/staff/vendors. Cade Tippet Marlin Gohn Fernando Sanchez Jr and Gary Osborn Spencer Watkins Sit back and enjoy the sounds of live "in-person" conversations. Few things create more interest today than the Digital Denture. Whip Mix (https://whipmix.com/) has developed a processing system for printed dentures, which uses Dentca (https://whipmix.com/products/dentca/), the first 3D-printed denture and denture teeth resins to receive FDA clearance. Their physical properties and biocompatibility pass FDA requirements and enable the printed denture properties to be very similar to conventional dentures. The material, coupled with fast and easy 3D-printing with Asiga printers (https://whipmix.com/products/asiga-max/) and the convenience of curing with a Uvitron UV light (https://whipmix.com/products/uvitron-uv-sunray-400-curing-unit/), results in fewer dentist visits, predictable fit, re-printable data files, lower costs and excellent intraoral denture performance. To learn how to create your own Digital Denture, check the Whip Mix (https://whipmix.com/) website for their Digital Denture courses and for more information about the system. Special Guests: Cade Tippett, CDT, Fernando Sanchez, Jr. CDT, Gary Osborn CDT, Marlin Gohn CDT, and Spencer Watkins.
We take for granted the dental design softwares that are here. Sure is nice that someone took the time to make and teach us all how to use them. On this week's episode we talk to one of the technicians responsible for bringing Exocad (https://exocad.com/) to North America. John Orfanidis has only known the dental laboratory industry. His past lab was the first lab to get the German made software, Exocad. John learned everything he could about the software and then took it across the country teaching and training other labs to use it. John talks about the early days of Exocad, some amazing things you can do with the software, and what is next for Exocad and John. Using 3D printed Dentca Temporary Resin is the easy, fast, clean and accurate way of creating natural-looking temporary restorations using Dentca Temporary C&B 3D Print Resin (https://whipmix.com/products/dentca-temporary-crown-bridge-resin/) from Whip Mix (https://whipmix.com/). The new temporary material is FDA cleared, biocompatible, photocurable, and can be printed fast. That patient can be temporized with the highest quality temporary crowns that last a minimum of one full year in the mouth. Dentca C&B Temporary features excellent life-like esthetics and shade-matching capability with Vita shades A1, A2, A3, A3.5, B1, B2, and BL (Bleach). Dentca Temporary C&B resin is validated for use with the Asiga Max (https://whipmix.com/products/asiga-max/), Asiga Pro 2, Asiga Pro 4K (https://whipmix.com/products/asiga-pro-4k/), and the Whip Mix Veribuild printers (https://whipmix.com/products/veribuild-lcd/), and with the following curing units: Uvitron (SunRay 400 (https://whipmix.com/products/uvitron-uv-sunray-400-curing-unit/) and IntelliRay 600 (https://whipmix.com/products/uvitron-uv-curing-unit/)), and the CUREbox Plus (https://whipmix.com/products/curebox-plus/).

From working with zirconia that gets sintered by the trainload to working with it in a dental lab, Chris Bradley is not a stranger to the dental laboratory industry. In 2008 she partnered with a dental laboratory instrument manufacturer out of Switzerland and started Smile Line USA (https://smilelineusa.com/). Chris talks about the different porcelain mixing trays (https://smilelineusa.com/product-category/mixing-trays/), what make a good porcelain brush (https://smilelineusa.com/product-category/porcelain-brushes/) good, the 80's colors of the United Colors of D. Vinci (https://smilelineusa.com/product-category/smart-accessories/united-colors-of-d-vinci/), and a super cool accessory for your phone to take your photography to the next level. This year she introduces the smartest thing we have seen in a long time. The "My Bench Box" (https://smilelineusa.com/product-category/mybenchbox/) is a fantastic program that allows technicians to try anything before they commit to buying it. Ladies of the Mill Summit: July 23 - 24 Chattanoogan, TN (https://www.ladiesofthemill.com/) Have you seen the CUREBox Plus (https://whipmix.com/products/curebox-plus/) from Whip Mix (https://whipmix.com/) yet? This highly effective yet affordable light-curing unit is ideal for most printed resins on the market. The economically priced curing box uses a specific wavelength and intensity light source, time control, and temperature control to polymerize (cure) dental resin materials. The unit’s glasswork surface features diffuse reflectors, which improve light transmission uniformity to the bottom of the model, and its maximum temperature of 80˚C provides increased compatibility with medical device 3D print resins. It also provides faster heating. The glove-friendly, easy-to-use touchscreen includes status indicators for heat, lamps, and the door to the large capacity chamber and it features One-touch presets, customizable settings, a timer (5 Minutes - 12 Hours), a temperature controller (30 - 80˚C), and an auto-start and shut down mode.

Remakes. Adjustments. More Adjustments. Maybe other labs can do flexible partials with ease, but the ones we talk to can't. Doesn't matter which system you use, flexibles in general have a higher remake or adjustment number. With the growing popularity of digital dentistry with removables, it is about time someone stepped up to make a printable flexible partial. Justin Marks from Arfona Printing (https://arfonaprinting.com/) has developed the first printed Valplast flexible partial (https://www.valplast.com/). Justin's grandfather created the first flexible and the family has been carrying on the Valplast legacy. Justin decided that the need of the industry was not just the product, but an ease of service. Justin comes on the podcast to talk about his history of Valplast, the workflow for labs to send to Arfona, and the new faciating method he has developed to print a flexible Valplast partial.

Let's be honest, dental technology is one of the greatest careers. You get to create and help people at the same time. Super satisfying. But imagine if you also got to do it for movies and television, creating iconic characters. That is exactly what Gary Archer does. He was asked to make a denture in one of the most famous scenes involving a denture falling out of a mouth and from there they never stopped. Making prosthetic teeth for hundreds of movies and shows, Gary Archer's list is impressive. Check it out here: https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0033664/. Gary talks about getting into the special effects industry, a few of the amazing movies and TV shows he's worked on, and the techniques he uses to get the desired (or undesired) effect that help shape the characters we loved and hated. *** Be sure to check out our new online store (https://www.voicesfromthebench.com/store#!/) where 100% of the profits are donated to The Foundation for Dental Technology (http://dentallabfoundation.org/)*** Aurident (https://www.aurident.com/) offers so much more than just the P5 michine (https://www.aurident.com/p5/).

So you get a letter from the FDA stating that they will be in your lab in a few weeks to inspect your operations for a certain restoration you are fabricating. What do you do? Panic? Leave town? Put your model room in charge and say good luck? Tim Torbenson has been dealing with the FDA and the dental industry for years and that's why he started Evo820 (https://www.evo820.com/) to help labs be compliant with the new rules. Tim comes on the podcast to talk about the history of the FDA looking at dental labs, why it is changing, and what you can do to prepare yourself for when they do come. We have a lot of fun during this conversation about a very serious topic. Just a few weeks away until the first dental laboratory conference of 2021 kicks off. The Dental Laboratory Conference of Texas (DLAT) (http://dlat.org/) is having an in-person meeting March 26 & 27 in Grapevine, Texas. Register today!

It’s oscillating, multi-speed stirrer produces a tornado-like vortex every 30-seconds, and guarantees efficient, effective and powerful cleaning whether the units are individual or still attached to the build plate. The two alcohol baths make an effective step-wash system. It cleans more efficiently and there is less alcohol needed, since it is re-used for both a fresh bath and a dirty bath. The VeriWash’s intelligent design offers features such as Mode, Time, and Start/Stop button display which gives the operator full and automatic control of the cleaning process. A mesh basket used in the wash container makes it easy to keep track of small printed parts when cleaning. The affordable unit’s one-year warranty ensures peace-of-mind for the owner. Visit whipmix.com (https://www.whipmix.com/) or call (800) 626-5651 for more information about this great new product. Special Guest: Tim Torbenson.
There are many 3D printers in our industry. But one of them was the creator of the technology most of them use now. Al Siblani created EnvisionTEC (https://envisiontec.com/) out of years of experience in the automotive industry printing wooden molds. Expanding on the idea and seeing a need in other industries, Al disrupted other markets before introducing it to the dental industry. Al talks about the history of EnvisionTEC, the story of it getting into dental, their efforts during COVID, what makes their printers unique, and what exciting things EnvisionTEC is working on next to disrupt it all over again.

One would think that to bring a line of dental products geared towards full arch restorations to America you would have to know how to use it. Defying all odds, Tay Harvey took a degree in Journalism, a love for the mini implants, and a passion for the dental laboratory industry to bring anaxdent (https://www.anaxdentusa.com/) to North America. Tay talks about how she took a chance on a "little known" product line out of Germany mixed it with AMAZING marketing and turned it into a great company offering "hella" customer service.

Few things create more interest today than the Digital Denture. Whip Mix (https://whipmix.com/) has developed a processing system for printed dentures, which uses Dentca (https://whipmix.com/products/dentca/), the first 3D-printed denture and denture teeth resins to receive FDA clearance. Their physical properties and biocompatibility pass FDA requirements and enable the printed denture properties to be very similar to conventional dentures. The material, coupled with fast and easy 3D-printing with Asiga printers (https://whipmix.com/products/asiga-max/) and the convenience of curing with a Uvitron UV light (https://whipmix.com/products/uvitron-uv-sunray-400-curing-unit/), results in fewer dentist visits, predictable fit, re-printable data files, lower costs and excellent intraoral denture performance. To learn how to create your own Digital Denture, check the Whip Mix (https://whipmix.com/) website for their Digital Denture courses and for more information about the system. Special Guest: Tay Harvey.
