|Description:||Denturists are dental health professionals who specialize in the field of removable oral prostheses (dentures). Denturists work in partnership with other health professionals to deliver comprehensive treatment. As an oral health professional, the denturist must demonstrate strong communication skills to provide optimum patient care. In addition, denturists must possess manual dexterity, imagination, creativity, attention to detail, and a desire to work with others.
The Denturist Technology program offers a challenging career for those individuals interested in providing direct patient care in oral health services. The program is designed to provide students with the theoretical, technical, and clinical experiences required to assess, diagnose, design, fabricate, and insert both complete and partial removable dentures. During the three-year program, students gain experience in communication skills, anatomy, oral pathology, laboratory procedures, denture design, and practice management. Students apply theoretical knowledge in laboratory and patient care clinics.
