A Dental Technician is an essential member of the dental team who is highly skilled in the design, construction and modification of a variety of dental applicances to replace missing teeth. A Dental Technician applies a high level of attention to detail and precision with good eye-hand co-ordination and manual dexterity skills that allow them to work in dental laboratories across a range of environments.
