Now that registration is in place for dental technicians, it is important to know where our experience and knowledge fit into the GDC dental team. Knowing one's position in that team will help it to become a well oiled machine and help us to produce what the patient wants, without costly mistakes. New materials and techniques often open different treatment plan options and using the technologist's experience will help with costs to the dentist and the patient, and avoid possible problems. I wanted to ask a few questions regarding the experience of dental technologists and the training of dental students, to see whether we could blend or share some of the responsibilities of some appliance designs.
