An entrepreneur at heart, I am proud to be opening the first digital dental laboratory in Vienna. I am focused on providing services that set a standard in the field and bringing the breadth of my thirty years of experience to my business. Trained at the dental med university in Vienna in addition to the private dental university in Krems/ Donau, I have amassed a wide range of dental technician skills, honing those skills over a ten-year period as a laboratory manager, over a fifteen-year period using CAD / CAM dental technology, and over a ten-year period designing and milling ceramic crowns, inlays, onlays, abutments, and bridges. Due to the CAD / CAM technologies, the materials that I am using are more diverse than ever before.
I first started tracking 3D printing technology five years ago, and soon afterward, I went into the full digital workflow. I think it would be fair of me to call myself a tinkerer: I love to figure out how things work and then try to use what I learn to help others. All the way back in 2005, when I started my career as a laboratory manager at Vienna University, the first thing I invested in was a computer.
Outside of dental technology, my favorite pastimes are singing and cooking. My fascinations with cooking ingredients and musical notes reflect my fondness for the basic materials that make up more complex systems, like the CAD and CAM technology used to create and personalize dentures. In Europe, it is never the end goal to be an entrepreneur – what I want most is to see happy smiles on the faces of all patients whose dentists use my dentures.
