Practising Implant Dentistry and Self Directed Learning
Working with a Dental Laboratory
Choosing a dental laboratory can be fraught with difficulty and confusion. It is easy to be overwhelmed by the large number of options available to clinicians. To evaluate and choose among these options, the clinician needs a clear strategy based on relevant criteria. Once a laboratory has been selected, the next and never-ending task is effective communication with the technician to ensure ongoing clinical excellence along with the appropriate technical support. One of the greatest challenges of implant dentistry is the mutual and continued transfer of clinical knowledge and information with the dental lab.
