We sat down with high-end lab technician and co-owner of Disa Dental Studio, Bill Marais, RDT to get an inside perspective on the advantages of GC Initial LiSi Press:
Q: What does GC Initial LiSi Press do for you and your lab?
A: I can serve my clients better with more predictability. I have a better ingot to use and it takes the guesswork out of the lab.
Q: What advantages regarding value and stability do you gain from GC Initial LiSi Press?
A: With Ivoclar’s IPS e.max

The feedback I’ve gotten from my clients about GC Initial LiSi Press has been overwhelmingly positive...and that’s huge; to even get those calls that [LiSi Press] is different.
Q: What do you think the primary value of GC Initial LiSi Press
is for doctors you work with and their patients?
A: When someone wants their smile re-done in a smile makeover they
