Webinar: Asiga Dental Experts Discussion
Four globally recognised speakers present their digital workflows on various dental topics.
The speakers in this webinar are all members of the Asiga Dental Experts Facebook page which now has over 9000 members.
Founded by Matthias Zimmerer in February 2017, the Asiga Dental Experts Facebook provides an open platform for peer-to-peer knowledge sharing, end user help & assistance, a resource for understanding Asiga 3D printers from a day-today production perspective, Asiga & 3rd party material options and what you can do with Asiga 3D printers and what you can’t and probably shouldn’t.
A recording of this webinar is available to watch on demand.
Growing up in his parents’ dental laboratory, the path to dental technology was very obvious for Matthias Zimmerer. The apprenticeship was followed by the successful completion of parts II-IV of the master craftsman’s diploma in the dental technician trade. Afterwards he worked in various jobs in commercial and practice laboratories.
Since 2013 he has been laboratory manager in the practice laboratory of dentist Dr. Heidi Edl in Erbendorf, whose focus is on digital dentistry. Both the integration of the digital workflow to the maximum extent and the further development of the digital production possibilities are part of his everyday life there, in order to optimally tailor aesthetic dentures to the needs of the patients.
He takes great pleasure in integrating new technologies into existing, well-established processes and in constantly optimising them. He sees many possibilities for change and further development in digital dental technology, which he puts to the test every day.
Matthias also had the ingenious idea of starting the Asiga Dental Experts page on Facebook!!
