How to get good at making dentures – Deliberate practice

No one is naturally gifted at making dentures. It is difficult and takes deliberate practice (described beautifully by Anders Ericsson). Here is a method of achieving denture mastery:

1. Provide 5 to 10 dentures a month. Enough to practise the skills.
2. Be completely open to feedback from the patient, the dental technician, the dental nurse and from your mentor
3. Read widely on the subject - textbooks and papers
4. Seek out and learning from experts on courses – really listen
5. Put into practice what you learn for each patient
All of the above require a genuine interest in this branch of dentistry.
There are no quick fixes or easy way, it takes effort, focus and time
