The IDS, the International Dental Show, is amazing.  Overwhelming.  A worthy challenge.  This is part one of our experience in Cologne.

Another DTG member joins us to share the view from the lab bench!  This time, Patrick Dippel talks about some frustrations that labs feel when cases are sent from an office that perhaps should have been referred.  It was fun and lighthearted, but certainly raises some questions about labs and relationships.

First rule of Lab Day: Don't talk about lab day.  So I found a bunch of rebels that break every rule.  Well, the first one at least....

 

At the same time as the Chicago Midwinter meeting, Lab Day was a chance for the lab techs to show their stuff and fill their shopping carts.

Feb 22, 2016

Just in time for the Chicago Midwinter meeting (barely), we have the story of John McMillan DTG, and how his fight against mediocrity has propelled excellence wherever he goes.  From big lab to solo to somewhere in between, John has fun stories to share that we can all relate to.

And Lance Timmerman shows that he is still an ass....

Feb 14, 2016

As dental podcasts pop up, it is logical that there would be some cross pollination.  I mean, seriously, how did we get Reese's peanut butter cups, where two great tastes that taste great together just "happened" to get mixed up?

 

Pure genius.

 

So Joshua Austin, from the Accidental Geniuses podcast, spends a few moments with Lance Timmerman.  Shared views, silly moments, and some decent music at the end.  The transition clip is San Antonio band, Wild Party, and their song "When I Get Older" and the final song is Andrew McMahon's "Cecelia and the Satellite (Toy Version)".

Also, the Smile Source Exchange was mentioned, and for more information, click the link here: The Exchange
