Stone Mountain Dental
The staff at Stone Mountain Dental is great. They offer a family environment. It was the same way when they pick up the phone. The treatment planner Dawn was very informative. I knew why I needed the treatment that was recommend to me unlike other offices I have been to in the past. Dr. Schadale Stevens was wonderful. I would refer friends and family to them.
Tips & Advices
Many dental technologists are trained on the job, starting with simple tasks and progressing over the years to handle more complex responsibilities as they gather more experience. Formal training is available, and it involves getting an accredited two-year associate degree. Dental technologists can also obtain certification, which involves passing a certified dental technician exam.
Many dental labs provide guarantees for their work, and they will replace or repair a product if it fails. The timespan covered by this guarantee varies from product to product. For example, screw-retained implant abutments often come with a 20-year guarantee. Transition crowns and bridges are usually guaranteed for up to two years.
Many dental labs offer pickup and delivery services. They will send a driver to a dental office for pick up, and, once the work is finished, they will have the driver deliver the product to your office. Many dental labs offer this service at no additional charge.
Patients rarely deal with dental labs directly. In most cases, dental labs communicate only with a patient's dentist, building products based on dental molds that the dentist has taken. However, a small percentage of dentists operate in-house dental labs, and in these cases, patients can communicate directly with dental lab technicians.
In most states, dental technicians aren't legally required to obtain certification. However, if a dental lab wishes to obtain certification, the lab must be supervised by a certified dental technician, or CDT. To maintain certification, a CDT has to commit to continuing education. CDTs can choose specialties such as implants, orthodontics, ceramics, and complete dentures.
