According to one past attendee, the Survive or Thrive Forum can help labs navigate the digital workflow, no matter their experience level or technology investment level. “Even though our lab has been scanning and milling for years, I chose to attend the Whip Mix Digital Forum because you can never have enough information on digital products and techniques,” notes Gary Iocco, President, National Association of Dental Laboratories 2014 and of Dimension Dental Design, Hastings, MN, a Certified Dental Laboratory. “I learned that with the Roland DWX-50 mill I could more than pay for it in material savings alone when I compared it with the mill we were using at the time.

"The tips and techniques I learned at Whip Mix’s Forum were put to use immediately when I went back to our lab. In addition, it was an outstanding networking opportunity. The networking I did there is still helpful to me and our lab today. For these and many other reasons, I highly recommend visiting our friends in Kentucky¹s Digital Forum."
