Qualifying as a clinical dental technician involves years of intensive study that exceeds dental technician’s training through additional modules in sciences, clinical skills and customer care. Their position allows them to offer patients direct treatment for the construction, repairing and fitting of removable dental appliances.  Whilst dentists and clinical dental technicians work independently of each other, they may confer on treatments when it is in the best interest of the patient.


  • Only a Clinical Dental Technician or Dentist is allowed to deal directly with the public for the purpose of making dentures. While it’s possible to find some normal dental technicians who deal directly, they are unlicensed and may not have the appropriate safeguards in place.

  • Training - Clinical Dental Technicians have to undergo extensive training before they earn the right to work directly with the public. Their training covers a wide range of skills which have traditionally been carried out by dentists.

  • Save Time – When you have your dentures fitted by a dentist he or she will be having the dentures made by a dental technician . Dealing directly with a clinical dental technician can save you from repeated fitting appointments and a bespoke service.

  • Better Choices – A CDT will often know more about the latest in denture technology when compared to a non-licensed dental technician.
