Manpower - Move the world with your hands
Manpower -for Enrico Steger, inventor of manual zircon-milling technology and founder of the company "Zirkonzahn", this phrase represents the unavoidable will, not only to promote ideas, but also to realize them with your own hands. "I learned the profession of a dental technician, which I found would perfectly meet my expectations. And, in fact, the more efforts I made, the better were my results. With the invention of the manual milling system "Zirkograph" and the idea of establishing the material "zirconia" in dentistry, in 2003, I finally decided to found the company "Zirkonzahn" in my home South Tyrol.
Being an ambitious dental technician, I'm continually striving for perfection and further developments. I love to swap ideas and to talk shop with colleagues and friends all over the world - always looking for new ideas and different ways of thinking. In my lectures, which take place all around the world, I like to pass this knowledge on to others and to offer innovative solutions and modern technologies for other dental technicians. With Zirkonzahn, my team and me are always looking for innovations and developments, leading dental technology into the future and setting new standards.
The Daily Bite
According to LMT's 2013 Dentist Survey, lab owners are sometimes hesitant to raise their fees, fearful of losing the account. Yet 53% of dentists surveyed feel it’s reasonable for a laboratory to increase prices once a year by an average of 3.3%. Twenty-nine percent think an increase—an average of 4.6—every two years is more acceptable.
