Glidewell Laboratories, industry-leading provider of dental laboratory products and services, announced today that the latest issue of Lab Perspectives™ magazine, its multimedia publication focused on the dental laboratory industry, is now available in print and across multiple digital platforms. The digital edition of the new issue, Volume 2, Issue 1, can be viewed from all popular desktop, tablet and smartphone platforms by visiting http://www.labperspectives.com.
The featured Q&A spotlights Daniela Hendrickson, CDT, owner and president of Northwest Ceramics, Inc., a fixed-restorative laboratory in Columbus, Ohio. With nearly three decades in the industry, a stint as president of the National Association of Dental Laboratories, and a current position as board member of Cal-Lab Group, Daniela has an insider’s perspective on the state of the industry and how it has changed over the years. Read the article to learn what this small-lab owner has to say about CAD/CAM technology, monolithic restorations, and how labs of any size can stay competitive.
The issue also presents compelling research on the accuracy of various zirconia materials that are used in making monolithic bridges. David Leeson, engineering manager at Glidewell Laboratories, illustrates how zirconia materials shrink and warp during the sintering process and outlines how certain manufacturers adopt fabrication protocols that can greatly reduce inaccuracies that lead to a poor fit of the final restoration. Check out the article to see how your material of choice stacks up against the competition.
Other highlights include an extensive exploration of the digital design process for BruxZir® Solid Zirconia screw-retained crowns in 3Shape DentalDesigner™ with CAD/CAM specialist Alec Di Lullo. An article by in-house counsel for Glidewell Laboratories Gary Pritchard, J.D., offers helpful information about the Indemnity and Limitation of Liability clauses found in contracts, potentially keeping businesses from signing binding legal forms that aren’t in their favor. Dave Morales, CDT, and Patrick Mastin of the Dentures, Valplast and Thermoforming department at Glidewell Laboratories explain how labs can easily add a quality digital service to their offerings without breaking the bank.
