Dental Laboratory Technology is both a science and an art. Since each dental patient’s needs are different, the duties of a dental laboratory technician are comprehensive and varied. Although dental technicians seldom work directly with patients, except under the direction of a licensed dentist, they are valuable members of the dental care team. They work directly with dentists by following detailed written instructions and using impressions (molds) of the patient’s teeth or oral soft tissues
Students are introduced to topics like full dentures for patients who are missing all of their teeth; removable partial dentures or fixed bridges for patients who are missing only one or a few teeth; crowns, which are caps for teeth that are designed to restore their original size and shape; veneers that enhance the aesthetics and function of the patient; orthodontic appliances and splints to help straighten and protect teeth. The trade is an important and job offering in character. Students can also go for further higher Diploma and Bachelor Degree courses.
