Damaged Goods

Damaged Goods is a group of dental technicians and dentist that stand for specialty handmade esthetic dental restorations. In a letter from Von Grow, the Founder of the DTG, Dental Technician Guild, he stats the following...

"What is your plan for the future? I propose that we all band together in the name of high end, handmade, esthetic restorations, and do not let machines take over our jobs. The idea is this: Instead of hoarding all of our secrets and techniques, we give the information away freely to other like-minded technicians and dentists.

By doing so, we can rise to a level that no one can touch. It only works if we do it together. We can carve out a niche for ourselves that will serve as a protection when the big fish come swimming by.

If this idea does not interest you, I understand. But everyone within the sound of my voice that is feeling helpless, down trodden, fearful of the future, or just wants to get excited again about the work you do, let’s take a stand. Let’s get a worldwide network going that is so big, that it cannot fail. We do not have to fight against CAD/CAM, but rather, lets take it with us! Anyhow, machines are only as good as the operator. They are tools, like a wrench. Or a hammer. They only do what we say.  Without us, they just sit.

Everyone keeps telling me that Facebook is not real life. But, I guarantee you that the relationships that you start online become real as you begin to meet people in person. It’s like old friends getting together. How is that not real? We have a great opportunity to educate one another using social media. It reaches out around the world. It doesn’t sleep, and it knows no boundaries.  It connects you to real people. Remember, it is not all about the fine work and pretty pictures! It is the people behind the work!

There are so many wonderful, brilliant people out there. If we get to know each other, become a family, and unite, we can do great things. The future of the dental lab industry is in whatever drives us together, not tears us apart! The dental world is surprisingly small. We are a family whether you like it or not... "
