Tony Kraus Clinical Dental Technician


C.D.T r.c.s..(eng) 2011

City and Guilds Dental Technology 1973


GDC no: 125415


Tony was one of the first in the UK to obtain the new qualification of Clinical Dental Technician which allows a technician to work directly with a patient in a clinical environment.

Through his own dental laboratory he has been providing dentures to the profession for over 30 years and brings this wealth of experience to the practice.

Having Tony working at the practice gives the patient direct communication with the person also manufacturing their prosthesis, which is very advantageous in producing a more predictable result.

Should you have problems with your existing denture we can arrange a consultation with Tony and Mr Eades who will give you their best advice.
