Is anyone out there using impression scanning at their lab and how are the models coming out? Which system? Models printed or milled? Have you compared them to the same impression poured by your traditional method? Can anyone verify if it is really saving them time and/or money?

There is a danger and a benefit to this situation because its a friend whos offering this opportunity. The most common problem I have seen as a consultant is the Dr requiring more attention than you initially expect. I would make sure you have a contract - Ideally one where you define it as a lease of...See more space and equipment (and maintence), No restrictions on outside clients as well. Also i would take your fee schedule and evaluate the savings on shipping, remakes and adjustments - Drs always love asking tech to adjust or polish every little thing. Best of luck and let us know what you decided?
Pre-scheduling your cases enables you, rather than the dentist, to determine the turnaround time for each case and helps ensure an even workflow. It minimizes the pressure of deadlines and enables a technician to focus on his product quality.
