Defining Denturism

Professional Denturists are the members of the dental health care team specifically trained and educated in the skills and the knowledge necessary to provide optimal denture services to the community.

Equipped with solid technical training as a technician, and post-technician training in sciences, clinical skills and interpersonal skills, the Denturist can design, create, construct and modify (repair and reline) a prosthesis to ensure optimal fit, maximum comfort, and general well-being. The Denturist functions as both the clinician and dental technician and as a result able to better control all aspects of the construction of the prosthesis, while ensuring a cost saving to the patient.
