6 Things We are Excited to Talk About at the Chicago Midwinter Meetings

Hollywood is rolling out the Red Carpet in anticipation of the 87th annual Oscars on Sunday. It is the biggest, most prestigious award any one working in the motion picture industry can be nominated for. The Oscars brings out the “crème de la crème” of Hollywood actors, actresses, directors, cinematographers and more. And while Chicago is not Hollywood, the Chicago Midwinter Meeting might as well be the Oscars of the dental industry. As this event brings together the best and the brightest dental professionals for a series of tradeshows, continuing education programs, galas and more!

The Chicago Midwinter Meetings give manufacturers the opportunity not only to talk directly with customers, but also enables them to showcase new products – some already on the market, and some soon to be. And here at Whip Mix, we are no different. We are extremely excited to talk with everyone about some pretty exciting products. While there are so many things we can talk about we have narrowed it down to a list of six things. Whether you are a Dentist, Hygienist, or Lab Technician, we have something for you!


1. #MeetMax

An Android App you have to see! Max is like having an additional assistant in the doctors office and lab. Max efficiently captures important patient information and aids in providing predictable results when mounting models.

2. Vericore Gradient Temp Milling Discs

The ideal temporary milled restoration. Natural looking with the right physical properties and high florescence, Vericore Gradient Temp provides the milling laboratory with the perfect solution for long or short term provisionals.

3. Preference Hand Sanitizer

Given a 4.4 rating by Dental Products Shopper, Preference Hand Sanitizer was developed for use in the dental operatory and lab. Preference kills 99.9% of the most common germs associated with cross contamination, dries quickly and leaves your skin feeling soft. Stop by and try it for yourself!

4. Preppies Plus

Building upon the foundation of the original Preppies, Preppies Plus, a pumice past with Chlorhexidine, packs a powerful punch in cleaning for dental professionals. Preppies Plus does not contain fluorides, oils or added flavoring agents and is available in single unit dose cups.

5. ProJet 1200

3D printing is taking center stage in the dental industry. The ProJet 1200 is an affordable desktop printer that allows dental labs of any size to incorporate 3D printing easily and affordably. The ProJet 1200 produces 10-12 crowns, copings and bridges in one hour and prints up to 80 patterns in a day!

6. Vericore Services

As intraoral scanners become more popular with dentists we are excited to expand our outsourcing services to include 3D model printing. Models are available in Full Arch, Quadrant and Peace of Mind (fit check) configurations in three shades of White, Blue and Ivory.

While this list only captures some of the highlights you can’t miss at the Midwinter meetings, there is so much more we can and want to talk about. So stop by and see us at one of the shows listed below!
