THE FIELD OF DENTAL LAB TECHNOLOGY is an ever-growing (and often overlooked) career that combines healthcare, technology and art. This is a solid opportunity for people who want to help others and be a part of ever-changing technology, and who consider themselves equal parts scientist and artist. Dental lab technicians, also known as dental techs, work independently to recreate a patient’s real smile using prosthetics in order to improve health and appearance. They handle small tools and must possess an eye for detail in order to accomplish this task. Dental laboratory technicians do not work directly with patients, but they are an important part of overall dental healthcare, providing the physical elements that allow for complete smiles and better tooth function. Dental laboratory technicians are an extension of dentistry, which dates back to 7000 BC. It is a field with a fascinating history as it is a demonstration of humanity’s evolution in terms of the technologies we use and the understanding we have of the human body and its functions. For example, the earliest cavities were thought to be caused by worms burrowing into the teeth, and the first fillings were composed of beeswax. Over the years, the technology used in the field has developed considerably, from carving ivory and animal bones to construct false teeth, to using lasers and plastic to create brand-new smiles. It is a rewarding field because the items you make have a direct impact on the patient’s health, and the results last long after you have completed the work. In general, it takes two years to become eligible to work as a fully qualified dental laboratory technician, and once you enter the field you can be promoted to laboratory supervisor or even establish your own lab – an enticing opportunity for those who consider themselves the entrepreneurial type. When you own your own company, the salary opportunities are unlimited. Dental laboratory technicians possess a very specific set of skills, as their job is part technology and human artistry. While machines are responsible for part of the construction, the finishing touches can only be done with a craftsman’s hand, requiring incredible eye for detail, creativity and a very well developed sense of dexterity. This field could experience major growth in the upcoming years as more and more people are becoming conscious of how they look, making it an excellent time to pursue the field. As cosmetic dentistry becomes the norm in modern day society, items like braces are in demand for fixing crooked teeth, veneers are being requested to cover stains and change the actual shape of the teeth, and crowns, dentures and implants are put in place to hide missing teeth and camouflage gaps. There could be an increasing need for dental laboratory technicians and their talents to construct all of these different dental technologies.
