DENTAL TECHNOLOGY what is dental technology? Admission requirements? Financial assistance? Program costs? George Brown
DENTAL TECHNOLOGY A dental technologist is a member of the dental team who, upon prescription from a dental clinician, constructs custom made restorative and dental appliances.
DENTAL TECHNOLOGY There are two major disciplines within dental technology. A fixed dental restoration is an appliance designed to replace a tooth or teeth that may have been lost or damaged by injury, caries or other oral diseases. Removable restorations are dental appliances to replace one or more teeth that have been completely lost. These restorations ideally remain stable in normal function but can be removed by the patient for cleaning and at night.
