Using several materials, their work requires a high level of skill to make dentures, braces and clasps. They can also work in hospitals helping dental and oral surgeons and making artificial facial parts. You need a good eye for detail, skill in making things and ability in art. ——————————————————————————————————2/2—— Have you got a careers query?
