Highly trained Dental Technicians are in high demand thus making it a lucrative and well-regarded professional career. Dental Technology is both a science and an art, as a technician must help create tooth replacements that are attractive as well as functional. Dental Technicians work independently after close consultation with the dentist and by following detailed instructions, create dental implants and attachments using impressions of the patient’s teeth.
