Charlotte, NC (October 22, 2012) – Hundreds of laboratory professionals celebrated the ten-year anniversary of Sirona’s revolutionary inLab® laboratory CAD/CAM system with a three-day extravaganza during Sirona’s CEREC® 27 and a half event recently held in Las Vegas.
Dentists and laboratory professionals alike descended upon The Venetian Resort Hotel Casino to celebrate inLab’s 10-year milestone by attending various educational programs and garnering CE credits along the way. Laboratory technicians had the opportunity to explore all aspects of Sirona CAD/CAM through a multitude of inLab presentations led by a who’s-who of inLab experts. Also on site was an exhibit hall that featured top dental companies showcasing their newest products and services. In addition, laboratory gained access to thousands of CEREC dentists already in attendance and fellow laboratory owners with similar interests.
Jay Black, CDT and owner of Winter Springs Dental Laboratory in Winter Springs, Florida attended all three days and summed up his experience, “CEREC 27.5 was an amazing event! Never before have I been involved in a celebration where 4000 like-minded, energized, and motivated professionals gathered under one roof wanting one thing, to grow with this amazing technology. It was great meeting with old friends and new ones! Hats off to the engaging list of speakers, and to all the folks at Sirona who worked so hard to put this together. I have come back to my laboratory motivated like never before, and ready to implement what I have learned for my lab, my dentists, and most importantly, my patients!”
Matt Roberts, CDT and owner of CMR Dental Laboratory in Idaho Falls, Idaho said, "Every time Sirona throws an event, I am beyond impressed learning about the new advancements of this amazing technology. Sirona just keeps making CAD/CAM more interesting, my job much easier, and my dentists happier. I’m seeing developments in CAD/CAM I never thought I’d witness in my lifetime! The new CEREC Omnicam is exciting. I love the full color video capture and the fact that there is no need for powder in the mouth! I can’t wait to start working with dentists using this new component of the system."
Earlier this year, Sirona launched inLab Software 4.0, the most advanced and comprehensive redesign in the history of the inLab software platform. The CEREC 27 and a half Anniversary Celebration also commemorated the 20th anniversary of Schick digital radiography and the 5th anniversary of the GALILEOS® Digital Imaging System.
