Fifteen years ago, Whip Mix had been providing its customers with milled zirconia crown and bridge units using very large mills. Soon after, mills became smaller to fit on a benchtop, more affordable, and maintained (and even increased) their accuracy. Labs started to realize that they could mill those units in-house instead of outsourcing them. This created a boom of small mills that suddenly appeared in the marketplace. At that moment, the CAD-CAM milling revolution had started in earnest.

To accommodate the new digital approach to dental technology, Whip Mix decided to change its education programming. 

We decided we would help our customers to launch their digital voyage by helping them to discover why, when, and how to adopt the new technologies. The number of affordable mills started growing, but what mill best suited the labs’ workflows?

Roland 52DWhich materials were best for each lab’s business model? How would they successfully use the new software and firmware? How would they justify the expense? How could they make an ROI look attractive?

To help answer those questions and more, we created the Digital Forum, where labs could come together to listen to industry experts and share information with their peers. From the very first Forum, in 2012, labs started to take notice and attend the event. We were thrilled that the event helped all of us grow together.

It’s now 2022 and we are proud to announce Whip Mix’s 10th consecutive year of comprehensive education, camaraderie, networking, and lots of fun!
