CdtA Clinical Dental Technician is an experienced Dental Technician who has taken additional qualifications allowing them to offer direct treatment to the patient. Registered as a Dental Care Professional, they adhere to the same clinical governance and guidelines as our qualified dentists.

So they make dentures…. ?

Traditionally dentures are made by your own dentist. You have a discussion, impressions are taken and these are sent along to a Dental Technician who works in a laboratory away from the practice. Instructions for the construction of your dentures are written on the accompanying laboratory ticket. Very occasionally, a telephone conversation may be had. This system can lead to the finer details (and patient wishes) quite often being “lost in translation”, meaning the finished results may be a standard set up with little individuality or characterisation.

So why would I see a Clinical Dental Technician rather than a dentist?

From initial consultation, taking impressions, to the finished denture fitting, our Clinical Dental Technician, Ian, will be in sole charge of the whole process. This process can now be achieved “in house” at The Dental Spa without the need for relaying messages backwards and forwards between patient, dentist and technician. As a patient, you get to have primary input in the design, shade, shape and individuality of your new dentures. Deciding together in surgery how you want your teeth to look, Ian will take the dentures back to his own laboratory for the creation of your new smile. Ian works alone so he will prepare the dentures in every last detail himself, using high quality materials to ensure you get the best possible outcome.

Ian is a dental technician, bringing 30 years wealth of experience to a clinical setting. You can be assured that your new dentures will be made by Ian in his own laboratory designed to your own specifications.

Patient Review

I have recently had several appointments with Mr Ian Taylor at The Dental Spa and I must say that I have enjoyed every visit with confidence. A genuine professional gentleman with a very pleasant personality assisted by a very efficient nurse. A gentleman that listens to you first and your needs and then gives his professional advice. My experiences in the past have been with NHS dentists, dentures have never been satisfactory, one impression, and back come your dentures, resulting in bad fitting dentures. Sadly, no satisfactory aftercare service. Now, after my patient care with Ian Taylor for new dentures, what a wonderful experience. Attention to detail and your satisfaction is his priority. Nothing too much trouble and always listens to you first and then puts the matter right. He certainly is not a happy person until his patient is 100% happy. I must also say, after care service, excellent. From the time that you enter The Dental Spa you are greeted with a smile and respect, a very kind and happy reception team. I would recommend a visit to anyone if in need of dental treatment of any sort, excellent. A very happy, satisfied and grateful patient. Thank you to you all.
