Introducing Lucas Lang

What is a Dental Prosthetist?
Dental prosthetists differ from both dentists and dental technicians. Dental prosthetists are masters in the fit and construction of partial dentures, dentures and mouthguards. It takes eight years of study and apprenticeship before an individual may become a fully qualified dental prosthetist. They must first train extensively to become a dental technician, working closely with a dentist by referral, then take further study before finally becoming qualified to consult with patients directly.
“When you put yourself in the care of a dental prosthetist you can be secure in the knowledge that you’re being looked after by a health professional with the most comprehensive knowledge of advanced techniques, new materials and the latest world trends in the field of denture prosthetics”. – ADPA
Dental technicians offer a valuable contribution to the dental industry and are an important part of our team here at Dentures Plus. They are technical experts in fabricating all removable and fixed dental prostheses.
Dentists are highly respected members of the healthcare community that perform a vital role in caring for our dental health. It takes five years to qualify as a dentist. Also known as dental surgeons, they focus in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of conditions and diseases of the teeth and gums. Many dentists train further to implement certain procedures that neither dental prosthetists or dental technicians can perform, such as laser dentistry or dental implants.
