Updates National Dentex Labs and the Dawson Academy, plus highlights from the annual Product iNavigator and the IDT International Digital Denture Symposium webinar series (

Welcome to the 100th episode of IDT Weekly! I’m Jason Mazda, and here’s what’s new. National Dentex Labs was acquired by Cerberus Capital Management. The NDX management team will continue to lead the company, but Chairman and CEO Tom Daulton says NDX is thrilled to tap into Cerberus’s financial and operational expertise, and to expand their manufacturing capabilities, pursue strategic acquisitions, and invest in new technologies. The Dawson Academy named Dr. Leonard Hess its new clinical director, replacing Dr. John Cranham, who stepped down to personal goals including practicing with his daughter, who recently graduated from dental school. Dr. Hess is an Inside Dentistry board member and wrote a great CE article that IDT published earlier this year about splint therapy. Congratulations to him! This month in IDT, in addition to our shop-and-compare charts and game-changing products, we have a Why I Invested featuring BJ Kowalski and Argen, a Corporate Insider featuring Kuraray Noritake, and several really information 5 Reasons to Buy pages. Our goal with these pieces is always to give the reader as much information as possible to help inform their purchasing decisions, so we hope you find them useful. Online this month, the IDT International Digital Denture Symposium Breakout Webinar Series continues tonight with Germen Versteeg presenting “Digital Dentures in One Day” Clinical and Technical Improvements Result in Great Benefits for Patients, Clinics, and Labs!” The series continues next week with a presentation by Conrad Rensburg, and of course all of our webinars are available on-demand.
