Clinical Dental Technician
Dip Clin Dent Tech Royal College of Surgeons Of England 2008
Simon Owen has been making cosmetic dentures for patients across Staffordshire for over 20 years. He gained his initial Dental Technology qualification in Manchester in 1993 and has gone on to run his own successful dental laboratory in Newcastle-under-Lyme since then producing a range of full and part dentures, and now a dental implant service.
To further his career and allow him to help patients personally with his skills, Simon embarked on a rigorous two and a half years clinical course in March 2006, involving distance learning, weekend courses and intensive practical assessments in Toronto, Canada following which he was awarded with a diploma in Clinical Dental Technology.
Simon then went on to successfully achieve a separate diploma in Clinical Dental Technology in October 2008 from the Royal College of Surgeons, which has allowed him to register with the General Dental Council and work directly with patients.
Drawing on his wealth of knowledge Simon can now personally assess each individual patient’s features, their facial profile and smile and how they talk. By discussing and seeing first hand any existing problems and utilising his specialised training and experience, he works alongside his team of dental implantologists to create dentures and missing teeth solutions with optimum fit, appearance and comfort.
