You asked, we answered! Q&A with a Dental Technician - everything you wanted to ask (but never did) from our Facebook community. A legendary Dentist once told me that an average dentist working with a good technician will do well in their career. This advice has always stuck with me ever since. I recorded this episode with one of my technicians Graham Entwistle of Trueform Dental Laboratory who has been a pleasure to work with. From shade matching to getting the occlusion right, we made quite a geeky little episode which was well worth the 200 mile round-trip to his lab!

This was some advice given to me by a legendary dentist called Raj Rattan. Jaz's Introduction:It was about nine years ago now. I remember exactly where I was, who I was with. What I was wearing is just like, really emphatic advice to me at the time. It's just stuck with me throughout my career, and it's not too different to the advice that Finlay Sutton gave. A few episodes ago. If you scroll down and listen to that episode about Scandinavian Design of Partial Dentures, and he said to find a technician who's a similar age as you, who's got a similar appetite for dentistry as you do and grow together. Hello Protruserati. I'm Jaz Gulati, and welcome back to another episode of Protrusive Dental Podcast. This time, it was actually a rare face-to-face episode that I recorded. I drove over a hundred miles to see Graham, my technician, and the theme was to answer your questions that you'd sent on the Facebook group, everything you wanted to know from a technician. But NEVER ASKED. We covered things like digital versus analogue. Is digital there yet? Should we be opening contacts for veneers? Heck do technicians like it when we open the contacts for veneers?
