What is a Clinical Dental Technician? | Swissedent Dental Dentures Clinic in London, UK
Clinical Dental Technicians (CDT) are registered and qualified Dental Technician who have undergone further years of training in sciences, clinical skills and customer care. This allows for CDT’s to provide dentures and other services directly to the public from start to finish similar to that of a Dentist. CDT’s are also referred to as Denturists.
CDT’s have a advantage over most clinicians as they have manufacturing dentures for many years which allows them to fully understand the clinical and technical aspect of creating dentures simultaneously.
Only qualified Clinical Dental Technicians and Dentists who are registered with General Dental Council are allowed to provide dentures directly to the public.
With all partial dentures, patients will need to see our in-house Dentist first, do not worry if you do not have a Dentist we will provide one for you and the examination fee is covered by Swissedent. The dentist will be examining your oral health, if treatment is required on your natural teeth before we make your denture, our Dentist will inform us on the fees associated with the treatment.

Take detailed dental/medical history.
Undertake clinical examinations.
Preform clinical and technical procedures related to removable dental appliances.
Fitting and adjusting removable dental appliances.
Providing appropriate advice to patients.
