Ulrich keeps himself up to date with the latest developments in aesthetic and digital dentistry by attending regular further training in Lichtenstein, Germany and the UK.
His laboratory became one of the first Sirona InLab laboratories. He has been working with CAD/CAM since 2004 and with the Sirona inLab system since 2008.
