At Care Denture Clinic we make beautiful cosmetic true to life functional dentures. All work is carried out by a clinical dental technician, here at our on-site lab. We don’t just look at your teeth, we look at you as a whole person. By gathering as much information as possible about you and your requirements, we can give you the best dentures.
What is a Clinical Dental Technician?
Clinical dental technicians are registered dental professionals. We provide complete dentures direct to patients and also other dental devices on prescription from a dentist. We are also qualified dental technicians.
Qualifying as a clinical dental technician involves years of intensive study that exceeds that of a dental technician. Training covers additional modules in sciences, clinical skills and patient care. This allows us to offer patients direct treatment for the construction, repairing and fitting of removable dental appliances. Whilst dentists and clinical dental technicians work independently of each other, we may confer on treatments when it is in the best interest of the patient.
Whilst most commonly used by denture-wearers, clinical dental technicians can offer a range of services, including advice on oral health. Along with performing technical and clinical procedures for removable dental appliances, clinical dental technicians can carry out intensive clinical examinations to search for oral abnormalities. We will always refer patients to other healthcare professionals where necessary.
Our Clinical dental technician Graham Taylor has special interests in Complete Dentures, Flexible Dentures, Implant Retained Dentures and Metal Framed Dentures.
He also spends a lot of his free time reading and studying new techniques and materials.
