Going Digital Allowed Me to Deliver the Best Denture Possible for My Patients
Featuring Dr. Lori Trost, DMD
Dr. Lori Trost is the founder of Trost Dental Care, a comprehensive restorative and preventive-based practice in the Greater St. Louis area. She offers post-graduate courses to dentists and their teams that focus on solid restorative dentistry principles, digital workflow solutions, and exceptional team building.

Dr. Trost has also been honored by the ADA with a Shils Foundation Award, named a “Top 25” Woman in Dentistry and once again Leader in Continuing Education by Dentistry Today.
Dr. Trost discovered digital dentures by chance when at the start of the Covid lock-down a patient came into her office with a broken denture. Dr. Trost was not a fan of traditionally produced dentures due to the time commitment and challenge in achieving quality results that led to unsatisfied patients. But after working with her dental lab who helped her deliver a digitally produced 3D printed denture, it changed her entire perception about dentures and led her to become an advocate and educator for the adoption of a digital solution for removable prosthetics.
Facing extreme challenges with traditional manufacturing methods, Dr. Trost turned to digital workflow methods, additive manufacturing, and premium materials to deliver dentures with accuracy and precision that far exceeds traditionally produced dentures.
