Now that the New Year is upon us, it’s time to do some planning.  Actually I would hope that you did this planning in December, but hey, it’s never to late to get things in order.
 
Along those lines my first article in DPR this year is on the Top 10 tech trends that will define 2017”.  Here is a quick sample of the article:

As 2016 draws to a close, we’re looking back at the year, but we’re also looking forward at what’s to come. What are the top 10 trends that will define 2017? Here’s what I see making a big impact next year:

1. Digital impression CAD/CAM:

CEREC was invented in the late 1980s (how they ever managed to pull that off with the technology at the time still amazes me). The product category made baby steps of progress until the late 1990s and early 2000s when the combination of an incredible drop in computer prices and a tremendous growth of processing power coupled to drive innovation. Soon the E4D unit came along, followed by several companies with digital impression systems. Today, more than 20 percent of offices are using some type of digital acquisition technology and the number continues to grow. This is no longer a “should I buy,” but is now a “when I buy” tech.  

The complete article is available to read on the DPR website and includes a couple of video chats I did regarding some of the topics mentioned in the article.
