There is a close bond between a dentist and a lab technician. It is through time that the dentist and technician grow together to provide patient with aesthetic results they want. It takes time to understand descriptions like "tight", "thin" or "close" when designing and engineering a smile, and the relationship between the lab technician and dentist is critical in setting those individual preferences. Dentistry is an art, and it is not surprising that the industry is often filled by a creative and intuitive individuals.
There are few people who know the relationship between a dentist and a lab quite like Gregory Harris. Greg has been a consultant in the dental industry for 25 years specializing in dentist and lab communication. Greg was recently in Calgary and we spent quite a bit of time talking about the need for collaboration in dentistry and learning from his experience and knowledge in the industry.
While Greg was in town we filmed a quick video on the collaboration between dentists and dental labs, and how technology has been developed to foster this relationship, providing tools to clarify and simplify communication.
