University Lunch & Learn Program

We come to you!

Great Lakes will gladly conduct a Lunch & Learn presentation at your university. Customized to your needs, Lunch & Learn topics can range from equipment “how to” demonstrations, available laboratory services, as well as providing useful educational and support materials. These informal discussions offer a great way to learn, and we provide the lunch!

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Biostar® and/or MiniSTAR S®: Machine operation including fabrication of appliances such as mouthguards, invisible retainers, and Hawley appliances
  • SAM 3® Articulator and Equipment: Demonstrations cover how to take a facebow recording and mounting a case
  • Digital Equipment and Software: Full complement featuring:
    • Intraoral and Desktop Scanners
    • Software
    • 3D Printers and printer capabilities
  • Lab Appliances: Overview of available appliances, options, and laboratory services

Participating universities will also receive a FREE copy of the book, "Practical Guide to Orthodontic Appliances", over 600 pages filled with information about orthodontic terminology, anatomy, theory, design, clinical procedures, and step-by-step appliance fabrication instruction ($195.00 value).
