Day 257 – CDT Test Cases – Upper and Lower Partial


Many of you know my wife, Vicki is a partner in the Schmitt Dental Lab. Vicki’s grandfather started the business back in 1928 and when he passed on, her father took over. In 2010 Vicki and Mary Ann purchased the business from Ed, Vicki’s father. In August Vicki went down to Lexington, Kentucky to take the practical exam to become a Certified Denture Technologist in Removable Partial Dentures. The test required a lot of preparation, as she had to fabricate an upper and lower partial. I am not able to list all of the steps it takes to build these partials you see in the photos, but I will say the key ingredient during the prep time was that bottle of Advil in the middle picture. Recently Vicki received her test scores, she had to anxiously wait 4.5 nerve wracking weeks for the results. I am so proud to say that she scored 100%. Way to go Vicki!
