Dental Technician Day is celebrated by specialists and professionals in this area on July 25th. This is a relatively young holiday, it emerged in the early 2000s.
Dental technician is a separate profession in modern dentistry. Today this direction is in demand and prestigious. The work of a dental technician is the practical manufacture of both various dental prostheses and facial prostheses, maxillofacial and orthodontic appliances, which are later directly installed to patients by orthopedic dentists themselves. It is often compared to the professions of a watchmaker, sculptor or jeweler, since any product is always individual and modeled mainly by hand. Each product must be: functional, precise and aesthetic. In their work, they use knowledge, achievements and developments in the field of chemistry, physics, mathematics, anatomy, computer 3-D modeling and even plumbing and milling, the art of engraving.
A laboratory equipped with a CAD / CAM system, one of the best modern technologies of orthopedic structures, is successfully operating on the basis of the consultative and diagnostic polyclinic of KSMU. According to the words of the head of the laboratory, Maxim Vladimirovich Skorkin, this technology with digital program control allows achieving ideal accuracy and biocompatibility of the dental prosthesis. More than two thousand people become clients of dental technicians of the consultative and diagnostic laboratory of KSMU annually.
An individual approach is applied to each patient, since there are no absolutely identical oral cavities, which is why it is impossible to put the production of dental prostheses on stream. Patient requirements for aesthetics force dental technicians to master artistic modeling and color rendering. This is a real exquisite workmanship!
Colleagues, congratulations on your professional holiday, we wish you solid professional success and outstanding achievements, good mood and vigor! Happy Dental Technician Day!
