Vident Hosts Dental Services Group Labs For In-Depth Porcelain Training



(Brea, CA) – Dental Services Group (DSG) lab managers recently made a commitment to use VITA porcelain materials in their dental laboratories, prompting Vident to organize a 3-day symposium to provide training and implementation support. Led by Vident Technical Instructor Ken Chizick, R.D.T., C.D.T., DSG lab managers from around the globe recently traveled to Vident headquarters in Brea, California, to attend a hands-on, in-depth training course using VITA porcelain materials. The goal of the workshop was to bring in all the DSG managers under one roof where they would have the opportunity to better understand the materials and their applications, as well as meet and bond with the entire Vident technical team. During the 3-day training, a full day of lecture was followed by two days of hands-on work where each attendee learned the specific applications and techniques on VITA porcelains to increase productivity and esthetics.
