Speaker profile: Frank DeLuca

Frank DeLuca started his career in dental sales in 2008, and quickly gravitated toward technology and equipment.  Holding clients hands through the integration of technology has always been the highlight of his time, and keeps the work fulfilling.  Whether an intraoral scanner, 3D printer, mill or CBCT, Frank has always wanted to know as much as possible to help in any situation.  “I believe it is imperative to work with someone like me who truly enjoys technology;  it is really not work when you enjoy it.  Getting to see the “ah-haa” moments in a client’s eyes is why I do what I do.”

*DOWNLOAD Case 1: Crown
