Dental Laboratory Technician Working Conditions



Dental laboratory technicians held about 40,900 jobs in 2010. Working conditions for dental laboratory technicians involve working in clean, well-lit, and well-ventilated laboratories. Dental lab technicians are trained for working conditions that often include wearing goggles to protect their eyes, gloves to handle hot objects, and masks to avoid inhaling dust.

Although some dental laboratories may have as many as several hundred employees, most dental laboratories are small and employ only a few workers. Because of the nature of their duties and working conditions, dental lab technicians usually have limited contact with the public.
