"Don't Reinvent The Wheel."
Dental Laboratory Technician:
Entry Level Dental Laboratory Technicians have a tendency to try to reinvent the wheel. Experienced lab technicians have proven methods that have been tried and remain true. Newcomers feel the need to alter the techniques because they think they can do it better. This "usually" is the beginning of problems. Dental laboratory work is a very detail oriented field and even the slightest deviations in techniques can cause catastrophic results. Listen to the veterans that are training you and don't change methods without consulting them because getting the product out the door is not proof that these small changes do not affect the final product. Problems are not always evident immediately they can manifest weeks or months later resulting in remakes and lost profits.
