Class Summary:

dental laboratory training for associate dentist

Want to succeed delivering restorations to your patients?
in dental laboratory training for dentist you will learn:

  • What labs really do for you
  • What labs want from you
  • How to use your dental lab for success
  • What is the one big difference between how a patient , dentist and lab look at a restoration.
  • The types of restorations we use for each clinical situation at midtown dentistry.

With infinite prosthetic options and hundreds of different materials – dentists get “lost in the woods” and cant get a consistent clinical result that pleases their client and makes their clinical life easier. At Midtown Dentistry we have come up with a system that WORKS FOR OUR GROUP. The key is consistency across the board and narrowing the choices to a select few that have good clinical results in the majority of applications.


Some patients may need to have a prosthesis made in a rush. They may have an important wedding, going out of town, or just want it done quickly.

Here are some issues you must be aware of:

  • In some cases, we CAN rush the case. It depends on the prosthesis ( crown, bridge, partial denture , full mouth of veneers).
  • Be aware that because time is an issue, patients can become very upset if their expectation is not met.
  • The dentist must MANAGE PATIENT EXPECTATION on top of the actual dentistry – so this will become a more difficult case.

• Rush cases have an extra fee. There is a code for a rush fee. A treatment coordinator or assistant must add the fee to the case.
• Rush cases must be called and scheduled with the lab on a case-by-case before you tell the patient it can be done. If you don’t call and verify with the lab – it will not happen.
• The doctor performing the case is in charge of making sure the case can be rushed and verifying that the scheduling is done correctly.
