“Nothing pleases me more than knowing I can turn the lives around for patients with difficult cases. When I see someone walk in, desperately unhappy with their teeth, unable to eat and not knowing the options available to them, it makes me so happy to finally give in the care and attention they need.”
– Lucas Lang, Dental Prosthetist, founder & owner, Dentures Plus
Perth-based Dentures Plus was created by Dental Prosthetist Lucas Lang in 1998 through a desire to create a new level of convenience for denture wearers, bringing all the processes, high-tech equipment and expertise under one roof.
For over ten years, Dentures Plus has been dedicated to the craft of creating perfectly fitted dentures and implant-supported over-dentures. Each clinic houses highly experienced and qualified dental prosthetists, while also housing a branch of its sister company, Dentistry Plus, allowing for greater convenience and service to our patients.

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.
