Devaughn Frazer

inLab 18: The Power of Modernization Meets The Simplicity of Innovative Improvement 

TIME: 11:00am-12:00pm

Course Outline: Curious? Terrific! Come and see how inLab 18 can be both simple yet powerful. 
You have wondered about the future, how you might reach out to more clientele, how you can increase accuracy, decrease cost and manufacture with speed you never thought possible. Now is the time to innovate - let us show you how. 

inLab is a friend to both those that can hardly turn on a computer, to the advanced user and everyone else in between. Modernization of the dental field now demands that all labs and technicians adapt and evolve with it. This lecture will share effective, and even fun, workflows to help you best succeed.

Bio: Devaughn has worked in the health industry for 16 years - 12 of which specifically as a technician, or in the capacity of Director of Highland Dental Lab. Seeing, and anticipating the morphing dental landscape, modernization began at Highland 12 years ago with the acquisition of their first in-house milling unit.
Since that time, no other lab or practice in Canada has created more restorations with their Sirona MCXL than Highland.


Ten years later, the lab is truly state of the art with multiple scanners, mills, and a 3D model printer. Not to be overshadowed by equipment, Devaughn has received advanced design certificates from Sirona and Vita. Further, he is numbered amongst a lucky few that are ‘Global inLab Trainers’, certified and instructed in Germany and Italy. Devaughn self identifies as a ‘tooth nerd’ and can be found immersed in a dental publication or tinkering with his dental ‘toys’. Beyond that, Devaughn is an avid outdoorsmen, rugby fanatic and suffers from a congenitally defective sense of humor.
