Geez I don’t even want to go to Dental Lab meetings anymore. Or symposiums

Don’t want to spend my free time with Dental anymore.
I'm at that point too.I can watch everything on Youtube.
Maybe it's because I'm not an old geezer yet, but I find inspiration when learning about cutting edge concepts. Trade shows?, I'll pass, but
educational symposiums are an opportunity to get together with the friends I've made around the world here and other online places and discuss
the different projects we are experimenting with.

And have a few beers of course.

Sure you can trade ideas over the net, but it's different with a face to face conversation.

It's also very expensive when the syposiums are far away. That's very prohibitive especially when you have to shut down the business for a few extra days.

Cost is one thing, but another is I have a million things to get back on track plus everything that came in while I was away.Banghead I need to start scheduling again....

This is the biggest reason I dont ever get out to CE.. its all good when youre gone, but its not worth it when you get back. Theres never anything closer than 6 hours away.

I am lucky I live 3 hours from Chicago and I have college friends in downtown Chicago that gave me keys to their townhouses. :)

I'm putting my feet in the water with this one. The cost is there, the workflows are being finalized, and it's only a matter of time. This was my first time doing this, and I'm not a denture tech. I'm looking at an all in cost of ~$60, and that's with outsourcing designs and prints. It's scan, apply composite, and done.

Mind you, the denture is a course model, not a live case, and attention is on the base, not the teeth, which I personally didn't like printed, but the base is legit.

Pretty cool for under $60. I think the low cost denture market has huge potential when you can lower your labour investment.

That's a carbon/dentca print with anaxdent composite on top. I don't like the printed teeth, I think Currently a multi shade pmma may be a better esthetic/strength option, but the base is nice.
