Introducing Modern Dental Artistry

Issue 6

One of the things I’m continually amazed by in the dental lab world is the commitment to artistry from the average dental technician.

One of the things I’m continually amazed by in the dental lab world is the commitment to artistry from the average dental technician.

Whether the technician works by herself at a benchtop in her basement, or he’s one of 75 technicians sharing a wide-open workspace at a megalab, the lab technician is an artist to the core.

11 ways to get better esthetics in your lab work

It’s also been interesting to see that artistry shift and mold to new digital tools. What was once traditional work done with brushes and sculpting tools can now be done with a mouse, keyboard and milling machine. It’s akin to seeing the animation industry shift from tradition, hand-drawn work to full 3D animation from computers. It’s not the artistic integrity or ability that’s changed-it’s just a shift in tools.

The continued artistry of dental lab technicians has led the editorial team at Dental Lab Products to hone in on a new way to focus on esthetics and technique in the dental world. We want to provide a place for dental technicians, dentists who deeply care about esthetics for their patients and dentists with in-office labs to talk about artistry, to learn more about the cutting edge tools and techniques shaping the industry, and to find partners equally committed to beauty in dental art.

We call it: Modern Dental Artistry.

What it is, and where we’re going

For now, Modern Dental Artistry (MDA) is a newsletter-it will be anchored by some of the best techniques and step-by-step articles that have appeared in Dental Lab Products magazine and on the DLP website. It's taking the spot of the Technique Geek newsletter you're used to receiving every month, but we think you'll be happy with the switch. We’ll also be highlighting products and industry news that are of particular interest to artist technicians and other dental professionals committed to esthetics. Look for the MDA logo on those stories!

We’ve got big plans down the road for MDA, but we hope you’ll join us in this first step. Sign up for our enewsletters and get the MDA newsletter delivered to your inbox every month. And, of course, tell us what you think! We’d love to hear from the artists who make beauty happen at their bench, each and every day.
