Live Recording: Dental 3D Printing with Innov3D Founder Dr. Mayra Vasques

A picture is worth a thousand words. This a recording of our recent IG live session. We had the pleasure to interview Dr. Mayra Vasques, founder of Innov3D. She is also an educator and a passionate technologist for the adoption of dental 3D printing. In this episode, we focused on an application that inspired her journey: a 3D-printed nightguard. This was also relevant to her Ph.D. thesis. We also answered live audience questions, including how the adoption of 3D printing differs between small and large dental labs. Dr. Vasques reveals some facts not commonly known to the public.
