130: Ordering One Taco Supreme: Gary Iocco from Apex Dental Laboratory Group
His friends call him Taco. His enemies call him Taco. But the industry tells him thanks. Gary Iocco from Apex Dental Group has been a promoter and supporter of our industry for a long time. As he starts his "semi-" retirement, Gary reflects back on the early days of getting into the industry, opening his own lab, and getting with other technicians to start a group to help them all succeed. That history gives him a nice perspective of where our profession is going and what labs can do to stay relevant in business and technology.

Last week Elvis printed custom trays on his new FormLabs Form 3B printer. Easy to print, transparent, and stong material was a game changer for the difficult and large cases that require a good custom tray to start. Head over to formlabs.com/VFTB and they can send you something printed on a Form 3B printer. Check out their gray model material. It's pretty nice.
