A Dental Technician makes dental appliances such as dentures or mouthguards. You might take casts or impressions of clients’ teeth and mouths and use them to construct prosthetic pieces. Dental Technicians use a range of techniques to make mouth appliances and may use materials including wire, ceramics or plastic. You might work for a dental practice or for a specialist appliance manufacturer.
Dental Technicians should have excellent fine motor skills and strong attention to detail. You’ll need to understand the needs of your clients and may have to use your analytical and problem solving abilities. Dental Technicians should be organised and be able to manage their time well.
