Lee brings home Procera golf trophy for the team at the lab!

Tuesday, 5 October 2010


Lee attended the Nobel Procera golf day at the Belfry on Friday and came a very close 2nd!


After an excellent morning golfing on one of the Englands best golf courses it was onto an afternoon of lectures by some of the UK and Irelands finest dental professionals.

First up to speak was John McEvoy of Euro Cast Dublin.

John was a very entertaining and engaging speaker who covered interesting information on how the new Procera scanner worked.

John went on to explain some of the finer points which make this system so accurate and user friendly including the improved user interface and some great tips on how to get the best results from the new scanner and software.

It was interesting to learn that the Procera scanner will soon be able to design Emax restorations ready for milling from the lithiul dislicate blocks provided by Ivoclar Vivadent. It will be good to see how this works as we already use this technique with our Sirona in house scanning and MCXL milling unit which with the new software update provides great design and fit. We'll have to have one milled from each so we can compare the quality of fit and design.

The Second Speaker of the Day was Stephen Green from Stephen Green Dental Studios.

Stephen Green was a charasmatic presenter also gave a very engaging presentation on the benefits of the Procera scanning system and the support network offered by Nobel Biocares fantastic team of representatives.

Both of these technical talks offered a great deal of information on the Procera system and were well worth attending.

The Final Speaker of the day was Dr Tambra

Dr Tambra is a very well known and respected implant surgeon who also has a great depth of knowledge on prosthodontics.

Dr Tambra gave a very interesting and informative talk on the benefits of using Biomet 3i's CamStructsure milled titanium bars and also Biomet 3i's Encode custom milled abutment system.

We are very familiar with the Structsure system being one of the largest producers of these in the UK last year. The Encode system was also interesting, although currently limited to Biomet 3i implant placers.

All in a very interesting day.

Not only is Lee an exceptionally talented implant technician, he's also a bit handy with the old golf clubs!

So the big question is, can you challenge Lee and beat him on the course next time?

Contact your local Nobel Procera rep for details on their system and dates for their next golf day.


Lee May have got second on the course but he's a 1st class implant technician!
