DEVAUGHN FRASER - CANADA

Professional Info

Devaughn has worked in the health industry for 16 years - 12 of which specifically as a technician, or in the capacity of Director of Highland Dental Lab.

Seeing, and anticipating the morphing dental landscape, modernisation began at Highland 10 years ago with the acquisition of their first in - house milling unit. Since that time, no other lab or practice in Canada has created more restorations with their Sirona MCXL than Highland. Ten years later, th e lab is truly state of the art with multiple scanners, mills, and a 3D model printer.

Not to be overshadowed by equipment, Devaughn has received advanced design certificates from Sirona and Vita. Further, he is numbered amongst a lucky few that are ‘inLab Trainers for Trainers’, certified and instructed in Germany and Italy.

 

Devaughn self identifies as a ‘tooth nerd’ and can be found immersed in a dental publication or tinkering with his dental ‘toys’. Beyond that, Devaughn is an avid outdoorsmen, rugby fanatic and suffers from a congenitally defective sense of humor.
