Giving back doesn’t have to be boring, especially when there’s a classic motorcycle involved. 

Through a simple $25 ticket, you’ll be entered to win “The Spirit of the Esthetic Revolution” Harley-Davidson® motorcycle donated by Ivoclar Vivadent.

Where does your donation go? We're partnering with the National Association of Dental Laboratories (NADL) to support the Foundation for Dental Laboratory Technology, which provides scholarships and grants to dental technicians.

Here’s what Sean Siegel – president and owner of Anchorage dental laboratory Castable Ceramics – has to say about the spirit of a Harley and the importance of advancing restorative dentistry:

Supporting Dental Lab Technology With a Motorcycle Spirit

Riding a motorcycle is one of the ultimate freedoms enjoyed by those that choose to participate.

In 2002, I turned 30 years old. I gifted a present to myself in the form of a Harley Davidson Dyna Low Rider in Jade Sunglow Green. It was a deep, rich, dark green. I loved, rode, and enjoyed that motorcycle.

As life moved on – work, kids, etc. – well, the motorcycle was there, but not ridden. It was not enjoyed as it should have been. Then, I had the opportunity to remodel my home and during that transaction I made a deal with my general contractor. He had taken a fancy to the motorcycle that sat perfect in my garage. In return for a portion of the labor, the motorcycle would be his.

Fast-forward six years from the sale. I still love the sound of a Harley Davidson. I still know the freedom and the feeling that riding affords. Who knows, maybe I can put a Harley back in the garage with this fundraiser from Ivoclar and the NADL.

The Foundation for Dental Laboratory Technology was recently given an opportunity, a gift really, from our trusted longtime partners at Ivoclar Vivadent. The gift: a 1995 Harley Davidson motorcycle!

There’s no reason to pass up this chance to win a Harley – a motorcycle that has its own unique and rich story, as all motorcycles do.

The advancement of dental laboratory technology is extremely important in our industry. Ivoclar values and embraces this concept better than most. With this grand opportunity, we can raise money through an exciting worldwide show of support for the Foundation and its many available scholarships and grants.

Personally, I might be riding again soon, supporting dental lab technology with a smile on my face …
