– I am grateful, and happy to be joining NIOM, Holm says.

In 2015 she did the testing for her bachelor at NIOM. Her chosen subject was «Influence of different surface treatment on bond strength of veneering ceramics fused to zirconia”. Since then, she has been working for different dental laboratories, mainly within their CAD/CAM department.

– I’m looking forward to new challenges. Working in depth with materials and manufacturing methods I find interesting, Holm says.

Holm has vast experience with the digital production at dental laboratories, such as designing dental prosthetics, milling and 3D-printing, using materials like zirconia, PMMA, E-max and Co-Cr.

– I am very prepared to be performing test assignments, working in the laboratory and doing research with my highly skilled colleagues, Holm says.
