On September 11th in Fort Worth, Texas, the 10th annual Race For the Future (https://dentallabfoundation.org/news-events/race-for-the-future/) will take place to raise money for the Foundation For Dental Laboratory Technology (https://dentallabfoundation.org/). Barb is doing her 9th solo race and Elvis is teaming up with Mark Williamson and Bobby Kenney to form The Abutments. Go to dentallabfoundation.org and click on the DONATE TODAY button. There you need to log in or create an account. Then select “Race for the Future” and enter the name of either Barb Warner or the Abutments, then the amount you want to donate. We love meeting dental technicians from all over the world. It's even better when we meet them when they are in other parts of the world when recording. Sabine Mayer started in a lab 32 years ago and for 28 years it was just a job. There was no passion or obsession. Then she fell in love with another dental technician and that passion helped create a passion for teeth. Sabine grew her skills, got on social media, and now she and her boyfriend are teaching courses around the world. Shera Model Resin: https://shera.de/en/produkte/3d-druck-material/ As a special bonus, the president of the NADL and past podcast guest, Denise Burris, stopped by the Jensen Dental booth while we were at the FDLA Symposium a few weeks ago. Denise updates us on all things NADL (https://nadl.org/) like their new website and job board, the NBC (https://nbccert.org/homepage.cfm) and the success of the Digital Workflow Specialty, and how the FDLT (https://dentallabfoundation.org/) can help you obtain your CDT.

There are a LOT of full arch restorations being made in out industry. Usually referred to as an “all-on-X”, these are amazing life changing treatments that come with a hefty price tag and in turn a decent profit for everyone. It’s not super complicated to do a case, but a lot can happen during and after that will require the work of a team to overcome. Two dentists are changing the mindset in dentistry to make sure everyone involved is on the same page. Dr. Ryan Dunlop from Full Arch Masters (https://www.fullarchmasters.com/) and Dr. Johnathan Abenaim from X-Cell Dental Implant Center (https://needteethnow.com/) want to make sure everyone on the team understands the need to do it right. Usually teaching separate courses, Dr. Dunlop and Dr. Abenaim felt it necessary to join forces and give the unsponsored, truthful, and RAW look at what goes into giving a patient a good looking, functioning restoration. Both talk about why they got into teaching and what they have learned along the way like learning to customize the treatment to the patient, learning to communicate better with in the team, changing the status quo, and changing the mindset of dentistry.

We all know that a majority of labs use 3shape (https://www.3shape.com/). We also know that a majority of the labs outsource designs in some capacity. Have you ever wondered how it works so efficiently? This week Elvis and Barb chat with Cole Bishop who is the Global Head of Design Quality with 3Shape Design Services (https://www.3shape.com/en-us/services/design-services). Cole comes from a long background of working in dental labs and really understands that no two people want the same design. He talks about his journey, getting into digital, developing the design options for Full Contour, transition to 3shape, and helping them to develop the 90 second AI design service called Automate (https://www.3shape.com/en-us/services/automate).

Our first episode since returning from the AMAZING Exocad (https://exocad.com/) Insights meeting in SPAIN! Thank you to all the wonderful people that put on the show and to everyone that stopped by and recorded with us. We can't wait to release all the episodes! Go show some love to Jaume Aisa Moreno (https://www.facebook.com/jaume.aisamoreno) who is reuniting Elvis with his podcast laptop! Shaana Gripp started off as a dental assistant because of her grandmother. After getting into doing some lab work, found out that she really enjoyed it. In the early 2000s she was exposed to CEREC and a passion for designing started. Moving to a full-time position in a lab was where she picked up all the skills as they moved her from models, waxing, and eventually ceramics. Now Shaana is running an in-office lab that does the work of 8 dentists in 4 locations. Shaana talks about her journey, learning how to self-teach, daily life in her lab, and how photography plays a big part in her full arch work.

Voices From the Bench is headed back to Florida for the FDLA Southern States Symposium & Expo (https://www.fdla.net/) all thanks to the great people at Jensen Dental (https://jensendental.com/). You know, the makers of MIYO! (https://miyoworld.com/). Come visit Elvis & Barb in the Jensen booth June 7 & 8 in Orlando. Register today at FDLA.NET! After countless past guests on the podcast (and Barb) sing the praises of the MIYO system (https://miyoworld.com/), it only makes sense that we talk to the makers of it, Jensen Dental (https://jensendental.com/). Kevin Mahan has been with Jensen Dental for 32 years and has seen the company go from alloy and refining to a leader in the ceramic space. Kevin talks about his journey, the story of how they got the name MIYO, and how he meet Kite Saito. Kite is an amazing ceramist from Ozark Prosthodontics (https://ozarkpros.com/). He talks about his journey to America to fulfill a dream of being a blues guitarists, learning about the dental technology program at the LA city college (https://www.lacc.edu/academics/pathways/hs/dental-technology-dept#:~:text=The%20Program%20includes%20instruction%20in,dental%20prosthesis%20including%20implant%20prosthodontics.), working in Beverly Hills, taking Ed McLaren’s course, and so many great tips and tricks he has learned over the years with MIYO.

Most people don't like to talk about health insurance. Because it's usually with some insurance broker that doesn't know anything about the dental lab industry and is just looking to make money off of us. But one man is changing all of that. Michael Clark was the Senior Vice President of Domestic Sales and Marketing for Argen (https://argen.com/) for 10 years. Michael spent years learning, helping, and growing dental labs around the country. After some personal "events", Michael decided to fall back on another passion of his, providing good employee benefits. But because of his love for the dental lab industry, he is focusing on labs and technicians. Michael talks about his history before Argen, life at Argen, and how a few simple (and inexpensive) changes a lab can make to benefit every employee that works there. https://www.mbclarkcompanies.com/ Wanting to take your knowledge and skills to the next level?

Check out queenswomenintheindustry.com to register for this wonderful event Elvis and Barb cannot believe Voices from the Bench is still going after 6 years! We owe it all to the listeners, the sponsors, and of course the guests that make this podcast what it is. 6 years ago, one educator agreed to be our very first guest, not knowing that she would be coming back every year. Renata Budny is a professor in the Restorative Dentistry (https://www.citytech.cuny.edu/restorativedentistry/dental-laboratory-aas.aspx) program at New York City College of Technology (https://www.citytech.cuny.edu/)and updates us on the school, how students find it, where they go after, and how as an industry we can help the school help the industry. This year, Renata brings on the podcast a recent graduate that has a unique story on why he signed up, Paul Beck. Paul talks about his experience in the program, what he learned, and why he decided to take his knowledge and social skills to Sierra Dental Tools. Did you know that not all Zirconia is the same?

Aleksandra Polczynski is an artist. Without even knowing what a dental technician was, she met and married a Master Dental Technician. The lab he worked at offered her a job after looking at some of her drawings. From there a passion and a career was born. She nailed her first few wax ups and was soon a ceramist. After partnering up with companies like GC America (https://www.gc.dental/america/) and Straumann (https://www.straumann.com/us/en/dental-professionals.html), Aleksandra was soon teaching others the art of full arch composite and staining. Wanting to do more, she partnered up with a dentist and opened Visual Dental Arts (https://www.facebook.com/p/Visual-Dental-Arts-100063516994366/) where she gets to work one-on-one with patients to give them the results they want. Aleksandra talks about her life in office, teaching, the craziness of Lab Day Chicago, and how she embraced technology to enhance her analog and artistic side.

We are all back from Lab Day and very tired.... but yet we are still all going to the bench because the work never stops. THANK YOU Ivoclar, for hosting us over the weekend! This week we get to meet John Rano. John's dad was a dental technician, so it only made sense that John would end up in the family business. At the age of 14, John started learning what he could. By 18, he was doing conversions. But John wanted more. So after working at another lab and learning even more, John opened Unique Solutions Dental Lab (https://www.uniquesolutionsdentallab.com/). John comes on to talk about his journey, what he learned about providing a positive environment for new employees, and using digital for his full arch workflow.

Do you mention how many years of experience your technicians have. Sure, that is one way to go, but how would you like your lab to be known for offering a distinctive value to dentists and their patients. This week we brought back on two guests that have partnered up to help labs market their uniqueness. Rob Laizure from Full Contour and 3shape Automate (https://www.3shape.com/en-us/services/automate) and Sasha Der Avanessian from Harvest Dental (https://harvestdental.com/) understand branding. Brought together by their love of the industry and seeing labs succeed, they talk about combining their values and how a lab can position themself to market a solution to a problem and not just a product. The conversation gets deep, but it's worth the dive.

Tyler at the age of 20 is already a traveling dental technician going between the offices to do chairside conversions. Tyler's dad and aunt were dental technicians, he is was always fascinated with what there were doing and always ask that they show him how. Eventually he took off to grow his career, and after a few bad labs, Tyler found the bloody role that he likes. Tyler talks about his journey, their process for full arch immediates, his plans for the future, and a scary story of how he literally died in the dental chair.
