A Denturist making dentures. Take a Denturism Program at Oxford College.
Learn to examine patients and design, construct, and repair removable dentures during Oxford College’s Denturism diploma

2.5 Year Denturism Program in the Greater Toronto Area

A radiant smile can make anyone feel more confident; who has to know it’s enhanced? If you enjoy casting and modelling, and you are an enthusiast for polished and perfect-looking teeth, why not consider becoming a Denturist?

As a Denturist, you would assess a client’s mouth and take an impression of their teeth and gums. With that finely-detailed mould of the mouth, you would then create oral prostheses such as complete, partial and implant supported dentures. You may also make repairs, relines, or adjustments to a removable oral prosthesis.

You’ll be familiar with the equipment and procedures, and that confidence will be apparent to your employer, coworkers, and clients.

Get Certified And Become More Employable

Oxford College’s Denturism Program is recognized by the College of Denturists of Ontario (CDO), and the curriculum emphasizes laboratory expertise and treatment planning.

Upon successful completion of the Denturism program, you will be eligible to write the provincial licensing examination with the CDO, which students must enroll for upon graduation.

Countless Career Opportunities

With the ageing baby boomer population, more people will start needing dentures. What’s more, insurance policies are becoming more comprehensive, so more people will have coverage for dentures. Since Denturism is a specialized career, the field is less saturated than many other ‘generalist’ professions.

This means there will be a steady stream of clients coupled with strong employer demand, which makes for a great career outlook for you.

Many Denturists choose to run their own Denture clinic or practice in the following settings:

  • Private Practice
  • Denture Clinics
  • Dental Clinics
  • Dental Laboratories
  • Community Health Centers
  • Hospitals
  • Educational Institutions
