What Is A Denturist?

 

Denturists are independent professionals who assess and treat the oral health of individuals who are missing some or all of their teeth. They are involved in the denture process from start to finish – completing oral exams, working with you to find the best solution, and even designing and repairing dentures and dental implants.

 

Our denturists will collaborate with you, your family, and your healthcare professionals to improve and maintain your oral health. Helping to restore you smile, health, and quality of life is what our denturists strive for.

 

Remember, you don’t need a a referral to see one of our denturists. If you have any questions about how a denturist can help you, contact one of our MyBite locations today.
