Practice environments

Denturists who provide clinical services usually do so from denturist clinics; however, some denturists choose to share a clinic with dentists, and some provide services to long-term care facilities, hospitals and home care sites. Denturists may perform both intraoral procedures (clinical procedures) and the associated laboratory procedures for the required treatments. Denturists usually have in-house laboratories where they complete the majority, or all, of the laboratory work related to their services.

Some denturists also work in educational institutions teaching the science, techniques and practice of denturism.
