117: Getting On Board with NBC & The Foundation: Dennis Urban, Sean Siegel, Shawn Nowak
Voices from The Bench
June is CDT and Dental Technician Appreciation Month. There is no better way to celebrate than talking to a couple of people who have volunteered their time to help promote, educate, and strengthen our industry. First up is Dennis Urban CDT from Dental Services Group who is also the Chairperson on the National Board of Certification (NBC). Dennis talks about getting his CDT, finding the motivation to get on the board to promote it, and what the NBC is doing to make sure technicians still have the opportunity to get certified during these difficult times. Then we talk to Sean Siegel from Castable Ceramics (also the Chairperson of the Foundation of Dental Laboratory Technology) and Shawn Nowak from Nowak Dental Supplies (also the Fiscal Officer of the Foundation). They give us an update on the Foundation, all the grants and scholarships that are available, and how the Foundation plans on being stronger than ever once we get back to normal. Whip Mix has developed VeriSplint OS, a popular 3D printed resin that is rigid, durable and affordable. This popular resin was the first 510K accepted splint material that is transparent, biocompatible and polishes to a high, clear shine. All of this, and a low cost, averaging between $5.00 - $6.00 per splint. If you’d like more information about VeriSplint OS, visit Whip Mix’s website at whipmix.com or call the 800-626-5651.Special Guests: Dennis Urban CDT, Sean Siegel, and Shawn Nowak.
