Workforce Wednesday: Dental laboratory technician
A Dental Laboratory Technician is a career in the medical field which directly impacts a person's day-to-day life and requires attention to detail.
Sean Siegal, owner of Castable Ceramics, says the goal is to take prescriptions from local dental offices and fill them. This would entail creating crowns, molars, and even dentures. These ceramics are not fake teeth, according to Siegel, they are the real deal.
People can expect the pay to range anywhere from $15 an hour. And could go all the way to $100,000 a year. No prior experience is required to get started in some cases.
