Mapping the past – creating the future. One ceramic system for diversity, beauty and simplicity in Meiningen, Austria 4-5/05/2018

Another course from Michael Brüsch, “godfather” of the Initial concept, was this time given at the training center from Klema, Meiningen.

During the two-day hands-on course with focus on Initial LiSi, LiSi Press and Initial MC, participants got familiar with all the perks this ceramic line has to offer. Four crowns were made in total: a model with a central incisor, blended with Initial MC and one model with 3 crowns of LiSi Press, finished using three different techniques, demonstrating the versalitility of this ceramic system. The first day was concluded with a dinner, followed by a drink in a typical ‘Bierstube’.

The unique course location provided an extra benefit; all participants got the chance to follow a guided tour through the production facilities. Klema is part of GC Company and all the Initial ceramics are produced here. Quality requirements for the production of dental ceramics are very strict and the production process is complicated. That is why only very few companies can produce dental ceramics. At Klema, 20 tons of dental ceramics is produced annually and exported worldwide.

After the course, everybody went home satisfied with a certificate and the Initial keepsakes. With the friendly atmosphere, the chance to interact with peers and masters and the beautiful environment, it were two days to truly remember.
