How to Choose a Denturist
Choosing a denturist is a major decision. Getting dentures is not something you do just once in your lifetime. The industry standard is refitting / relining your denture every 2 years and replacing every 5 years. Because regular visits are necessary, it's important to select a denturist that suits your needs.
A person who has received special training in creating and fitting dentures is known as a
denturist. To become a Denturist in Canada, you must pass provincial board exams and have
graduated from a recognized denturist school. The Denturist Association of Manitoba and the
Denturist Association of Canada oversee Denturists in Manitoba.
Every day of the week, a Denturist works with dentures. Denturists are present at every stage,
in contrast to other dental specialists. The only dental specialists with specialized training in
both clinical and laboratory procedures are Denturists. As a result, regardless of the mouth
involved, they are better familiar with all the components of creating a great pair of dentures.
No referral is necessary and we offer free consultations & second Opinions. We work closely with several dental specialists and are more than happy to work with your dentist on your behalf.
“The Denturist Technology Program prepares Denturists with the theoretical, technical, and
clinical experiences required to assess, design, fabricate and insert complete, partial, or any
kind of removable prostheses and to provide effective communication with patients regarding
treatment options and care”. (Denturist Association of Manitoba - about denturism 2023)

Questions to ask yourself prior to choosing a Denturist
Just because someone is offering a lower price to solutions, you should still ask yourself these questions.
1) Do they have the necessary qualifications?
2) Do they have any prior experience?
3) Do they use high-quality materials?
4) Do their dentures come with a warranty?
Manitoba Denturists follow to the Manitoba Denturist Association Fee Guide. This guideline is
followed by Daien Denture Clinic, which also offers affordable payment plans and a Best Price
Guarantee. If you receive a written estimate from another clinic, we will gladly match or beat
that price as long as the treatment plan is the same. (The estimate should be presented to the
Denturist during your consultation before beginning treatment).
