I agree Larry good letter. We just passed mandatory registration in Minnesota and I can assure you it was not the dentists that were pushing for it. The patient needs to be educated on their restorations....See more I feel if this is truly about the well being of the patient, the awareness of the chairside cerec crowns that have been seated over the last 20 years should have been front and center. The patient is not saving any money on this race to the bottom on pricing and quality. The patient should have a choice on how they want to spend their hard earned dollars. The lab fabricated crown is still the best choice for value and quality and the more they see us and learn about us they see the value for their money.
From the subcontractor's perspective, work from other laboratories isn't the most profitable part of their business; in fact, 60% say working for dentists is more profitable because they can charge higher fees.
