Conner Teal, Dental Technician
Conner is a specialized dental technician that provides our unique and high quality fit and function "Crown in a Day" services to Ocean Oaks Dental Group. You will be amazed by the specialized ability to deliver a crown on the same day that provides a perfect fit and extremely natural appearance that cannot be duplicated by sending a crown to an offsite dental lab.
As chairside milling has become more popular, the scope of the dental laboratory is changing. Instead of stamping out single-unit PFM crowns, Conner uses today's digital laboratory to produce extraordinary restorations using high-tech precision equipment. With our ability to communicate via these software technologies, Conner's digital laboratory skills play an ever-increasing role in treatment planning and overall patient care.
The ability to provide same-day chairside milled restorations has significantly increased efficiency and improved results to our patients. A single-unit crown restoration that normally takes two appointments, sometimes taking place over multiple weeks to deliver the final results, now can be completed in a single day.
