(Bad Säckingen, Germany) – Select CEREC doctors from across the country recently traveled to VITA headquarters in Bad Säckingen, Germany to attend a new product workshop and were treated to several days of in-depth exposure to new VITA products. The two-day workshop was led by VITA staff and instructors and was taught in VITA’s state-of-the-art dental training facility. On day one, guests were exposed to a series of lectures that covered the latest materials technology, research results and innovative products. The following day, attendees participated in a course in the VITA lab, led by dentist Dr. Andreas Baltzer and dental technician Vanik Jinoian, MDT, where they learned how to design everything from an anterior crown with VITABLOCS RealLife to a VITA Rapid Layer Technology posterior bridge veneered with VITABLOCS TF-40/19.
Attendees also participated in a facility tour of VITA headquarters and were given the option of several sightseeing tours, including a shopping excursion in Zurich and a unique dinner in the famed Black Forest.
Participants had an opportunity to evaluate their experience and predominantly gave the workshop good to excellent marks. “Vanik Jinoian and Dr. Baltzer’s presentations made the whole trip worthwhile,” explained one doctor. “They were amazing in all the theoretical content and answered every question we had.” Vident has been a provider of innovative dental products since 1985 and is the North American subsidiary of VITA, manufacturer of the internationally recognized Classical Shade Guide, 3D-Master Shade System and quality VITA restorative materials.
