PTC Simplifying Posterior Dental Anatomy
120.00
This course is designed to give the students the foundation information necessary to be successful in the MNTC Dental Lab Program. Basic information about the dental lab industry and general laboratory techniques are presented during this course. These techniques include primary and secondary anatomy, and tooth numbering systems. Students will learn the specific dental terminology needed by the Dental Laboratory Technician. Students also learn about dental materials, tooth morphology, oral anatomy and occlusion and gain competency in competent in general laboratory techniques. The course also includes information about aspects of the development and technical description of adult human teeth.
