The first of a two-part webinar series in collaboration with the College of General Dentistry, presented by Caroline Persaud and Mike Brindle, aims to explore the benefits that Clinical Dental Technicians can provide with Domiciliary Denture Care.
Since the Covid-19 pandemic many medical services have reverted to remote access. The inference being medical professionals can accommodate and access their patients in a more rapid manner leading to a quicker resolution for patient.
Dentures are more commonly associated with an ageing demographic, whereby mobility issues and additional assistance may be deciding factors when opting for denture treatment. Domiciliary denture provision may be one solution to assist concerned patients and their relatives/care team.

Caroline qualified from Manchester Metropolitan University in 2001 with a Dental Technology BSc Hons and continued her learning pathway to attain a Diploma in Clinical Dental Technology from the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 2007.
Since then she has amassed a wealth of knowledge and experience, both through her own private patient base, and also being associated with a number of dental practices who seek her skills in removable prosthodontics. In the latter, she has integrated to be part of the various multidisciplinary teams.
In 2019 Caroline joined the board of the British Association of Clinical Dental Technology.
During her time served on the board, she formed a keen interest in the emerging College of General Dentistry undertaking a role within the Working Panel for Career Pathways (Clinical Dental Technicians division). Caroline is now a board member of the Faculty of Clinical Dental Technicians and Dental Technicians where she continues to share her passion for the profession and specifically the niche area of domiciliary denture care provision.
Clinical Dental Technician
Mike began his career in dentistry in May 1973 as an apprentice dental technician and qualified in 1977 before going on to gain advanced qualifications in orthodontics, crown and bridge technology and prosthetics. He founded Northern Orthodontics which provided a full laboratory service to dental clinics and hospitals throughout the UK. In 1992 he received the Aspin Award from the British Institution of Dental and Surgical Technologists for the best piece of crown and bridge work.
Next, Mike opened the Fylde Dental Clinic in St Anne's, a CQC registered dental surgery currently employing a dentist and hygiene therapist with supporting nurses and dental technician.
In 2009 Mike saw an opportunity to convince UCLan to offer a course in Clinical Dental Technology as training was non-existent at the time. Subsequently, he became the course founder and clinical lead. For several years he worked as their lecturer in orthodontics and prosthetics. At the time of writing, the UCLan course remains the sole provider for CDT training within the UK.
Around the same time of qualification as a CDT, he was asked to become one of the founder board members of the BACDT, a professional association representing the needs of UK CDTs. In 2013 he became the BACDT President as well as the Director for Training with the Dental Laboratories Association.
When the Advancing Dental Care Group was founded, Mike was established as a senior stakeholder. His involvement secured the first pilot scheme in the UK to include a CDT to provide dental domiciliary care to patients in northwest England.
More recently Mike was appointed as the chair for the CDT and the co-chair, DT section, with the College of General Dentistry ahead of its launch in June 2022.
Prior to the arrival of his two granddaughters, Mike's hobbies included flying light aircraft, offshore racing, diving, and maintaining a classic sports car. Now, however, his pastimes include pony club, skating, and playing Barbie dream house.
Jiri Matl qualified in 1993 as a Dental Technician and spent his early career in a hospital environment gaining experience in all fields of Dental Technology. He then moved on to work in a laboratory attached to a Dental clinic focusing his interest on fixed and removable prosthodontics. After further studies, he was awarded a Diploma in Clinical Dental Technology in 2015. He is currently employed by Peninsula Dental Social Enterprise supporting the management and teaching teams.
