Dental Laboratory Technicians
Dental laboratory technicians should experience slower than average growth through 2022. However, opportunities exist for new technicians because the aging (and affluent) baby boomer population is often willing to pay for more costly cosmetic restorations, such as all-ceramic crowns and dental implants. In addition, people are replacing older, silver fillings with composite fillings that closely match the natural color of teeth.
