Dental prosthetist

A dental prosthetist is a form of dental technician who constructs removable oral prosthesis (dentures) direct to the patient. The major difference from a dental technician is that dental prosthetists do not typically work under the instruction of a dentist. Their duties are typically restricted to making just removable prosthesis, and referral to a dentist for other forms of dental work may be required.

Additional recommended knowledge

They should not be confused with prosthodontists, who are qualified specialist dentists for making fixed or removable appliances for patients.
