Register TODAY – NADL Spring Daze

NADL is expanding their Spring Daze line-up and will be offering two courses in conjunction with LMT LabDay West. The 2017 NADL Spring Daze will take place on Saturday, May 20, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Orange County in Garden Grove, CA.

NADL will offer two important courses that you won’t want to miss:

Regulations vs. Best Practices, presented by Bennett Napier, CAE, will review key state and federal regulatory topics that keep lab owners up at night. The focus will be on areas that are most pressing in terms of risk management. As part of the course deliverables, Bennett will be reviewing a sample action plan/checklist to get your regulatory house in order.

We Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet, presented by Mark Ferguson, will examine advancements in hardware, software, and manufacturing techniques. Mark will highlight several workflows the digital dental lab has never seen before. He will walk you through the tools and techniques currently available to bring higher quality and production to your lab.
