To a certain degree, we are being eliminated but to be fair, it's not like anything that hasn't been done before. Let me explain, Henry Ford developed the 'assembly line', tons of workers doing one or two jobs on the line. Now the robots do most of it. We see the same in our industry...to an extent. I think you could say we have more pressure to adapt than they did back then because we are getting hammered by big companies getting into our lab industry. Then the manufactures deciding, we can play lab guy too. On top of that, add in the expansion of chairside services has taken a lot of lab work out of the labs. It's a massive trifecta and we are holding the losing ticket. Unless, you get off your arse and diversify, show how valuable you are and market that to the current business client. This transition will take time, maybe even decades, but it will happen. Where will you be when the dust clears?
