NEWS, TIPS & GUIDES FROM AROUND THE BENCH

July 2022 | Issue #3

June was a busy month here at the lab, we look forward to what July has in store!


As a reminder Arieno Dental Lab will be closed for the week of July 4th - July 8th, 2022.

In an effort to minimize any inconvenience, and to accommodate for this closing, our driver will be picking up cases during the morning of Thursday, July 7th. To take advantage of this pick up, please call the office and leave a voicemail.


When we reopen the lab on the 11th, please note we will not be accepting any rush job for the first week we are back to ensure the lab can get through all the cases in a timely and efficient manner. 

 

Coming Up in August

 

Tips from the Lab

These tips come from Skylar (Shipping & Receiving Rep & Soft Tissue Technician):


TIP: Send a new script for all cases coming back to the lab for any reason.

Reason: To ensure proper communication and processing of your case, sending a new script will assist the lab in ensuring all proper details are accounted for.


TIP: Remove models from Alginate before sending to the lab.

Reason: As the Alginate dries, it begins to shrink, causing a distortion of the model.

 

Wemoco Lab Walk Through

Connecting to the Community

Thursday, June 9th, Arieno Dental Laboratory hosted a walkthrough for our local Wemoco Dental Assisting students. The students were accompanied by their teacher Jennifer Probst and CTE Work Based Learning Coordinator Cindy Christensen. We met the students during a Career Fair in May and invited them to the lab, to see a different side of dentistry.


Upon arriving the students were greeted by the front office staff. Skylar and Beth walked the students though the lab, visiting each department, speaking with employees and technicians about what their job entailed.

The students were especially interested in watching an Investment process in action, performed by one of our Metal Department Technicians, Max.


The group spent time speaking with Steve Arieno (owner) about his 40 years experience in the field, listening to how the industry has changed, and about the direction it is going.


We look forward to our continued relationship with the WEMOCO program!

 

Product Discontinuation

The following letter was emailed out to offices, as well as printed out and sent along with returned cases during the month of June.


Greetings and Salutations,


Arieno Dental has discontinued our use of Callisto CPG Ceramic Alloy; as a leader in crown and bridge fabrication, we have found that Callisto CPG is not meeting the Standard of Quality we strive for.


Please note that any cases received on or after Wednesday, June 22nd requesting the use of CPG, will be adjusted by default to NOBEL ALLOY (D.sign 59). Offices can also choose to utilize HIGH NOBEL (Evolution Lite), or NON PRECIOUS (Tilite).


Please call the office if you have any questions or concerns, as always I am available to discuss your alternatives.


Steve Arieno

Owner / CDT
