108 How 3D Printing is Revolutionizing the Dental World

Millennial Dentist Podcast

We are chatting with Justin Maceroy from Midwest Dental Arts and Nikoli Mensuri from Detroit Dental Lab. Both guests are here to discuss 3D printing in dentistry, reforming their staff based on technology, and how our labs are set up based on our dental specialties.

Clinicians need to stay informed about new technologies, which is essential for providing excellent dental care to clients. The more you know about in-house design and specialty dentistry, the greater you can offer services to your patients. “The more you know about digital dentistry, the better your cases can be.”

In-house technology inside your practice makes designing fast and straightforward. The manufacturing process is the part of patient care that can increase turnaround time.  3D printing allows for more rapid design and gives you more time in your schedule because you’re not using your time waiting for an impression to be delivered.

Having a 3D printer in-office removes the hassle of overnight shipping. With COVID affecting shipping times, there’s no guarantee that you’ll get your products within one day anymore. In addition, having a printer in-office cuts down on overhead costs and reduces the amount of time you can take care of a patient emergency.

Dentistry is changing. Technology, education, and resources are closer to our fingertips now more than ever! Are you ready to learn what millennial dentists are doing to exceed patient expectations, enjoy dentistry more and take vacations and how this generation can join up with the previous generation to make for an unstoppable dental team? Wait no longer! Listen in and find out how to push your lifestyle to the next level.
