Create fantastic jewelry using gemstones and sparkling metals.
As a Dental Laboratory Technician, you make dental prosthetics like bridges, crowns, and dentures according to the specifications sent to you by the Dentists. Dental Laboratory Technicians will most likely work in a specialty right off the bat, focusing in orthodontic appliances, crowns and bridges, complete dentures, partial dentures, or ceramics.
There is room for growth in this career, you may end up opening your own laboratory, or you could become a Manager or Supervisor. But starting means you need to have what it takes, which means having good manual dexterity and good vision. Dental Laboratory Technicians should also have keen enough sight to recognize the very fine color variations and shapes of teeth – if dentures are your trade.
You should also be somewhat artistic and have an aptitude for highly detailed and precise work. This is something that people will be carrying around with them – in a highly visible place – for a very long time. If you take pride in your work and the Dentists you supply for get good feedback, that means more business for you.
