  • Is zirconia too strong?
  • Can you bond zirconia? And how does that work?
  • How does the lab approach zirconia (e.g.--die space, etc.)
  • 30 micron margins! Crown margins = really narrow class V restoration

  •  Mike and Josh Austin's AMAZING performances at VoD 2020!
  • What is zirconia's Kryptonite and why do we have to clean zirconia before cementing/bonding?
  • Best way to open an access/drill a hold into a zirconia crown and how to repair

Organization is so important in all facets of your dental office. You have systems for your front desk. But what about systems for how you handle your clinical set ups? There are a ton of systems for organizing instruments, but our friends at Zirc make it easy for you to pick what’s exactly right for you! Zirc has a process that they call ZOBE. That stands for Zirc’s Organizational Box of Efficiency. They send a big box full of their different instrument organization options to YOUR OFFICE. You get to try it all out. Snap the tops on the tubs. Put cassettes in your own sterilizer. Try out YOUR instruments in whatever cassette you like! Plus, Zirc sets you up with your own organizational expert to help you determine what’s right for you. Also, if you do a ZOBE consultation by April 17, 2020...you’ll be in the running for a $300 Amazon gift card! Find out more at dentalhacks.com/ZOBE!
