Communicating with the lab

Communicating with the lab is paramount to do successful, predictable dentistry.

It starts out with exquisite, accurate records on your part.

And then The Dawson Academy has checklists for all that we do: 2D, 3D, and provisional checklists. We also have a lab communication checklist that we follow to make sure that the lab gets all of the information that we possibly can get them.

But when we get that information to them, it is absolutely spot-on perfect: crystal-clear photos, study models. We just follow the checklist then communicate that with the lab.
