Lead Dental Laboratory Technician
The Lead Dental Laboratory Technician position in the Head & Neck Center at MD Anderson Cancer Center partners with our oncology and maxillofacial prosthodontic doctors to care for patients with some of the most complex cases of oral loss and reconstruction. Restoring what's lost due to cancer and cancer treatments often goes well beyond implants done at a local dentist office. Many times, the prosthetics made here include structures such as the roof or floor of the mouth. These sophisticated implants help restore proper air flow and enhance patients' abilities to eat, drink and speak. They also make fluoride carrier trays and radiation stents for patients undergoing radiation in the head and neck region. These stents protect tissues that don't need radiation and confine the tongue, making the treatment more effective and like the prosthetics, each stent is custom-made to fit the individual patient.
Most new patients who come to MD Anderson every year are treated in one of our specialized cancer care centers or clinics, which embody the multidisciplinary, team approach to cancer care that has become an MD Anderson trademark. MD Anderson's Head and Neck Center has a remarkable depth of expertise gained by seeing more than 50,000 patients a year with cancers and benign tumors of the head and neck. We treat head and neck cancers with a diverse team of oncologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, neuro-radiologists, dental oncologists and plastic surgeons with special training in head and neck cancers. Together, they design customized treatment plans that may include proton therapy, Gamma Knife radiosurgery, targeted therapies and advanced reconstructive surgery methods.
The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is ranked the nation's top hospital for cancer care by U.S. News & World Report's "Best Hospitals." MD Anderson's mission is to eliminate cancer in Texas, the nation and the world through exceptional programs that integrate patient care, research and prevention. Our mission also includes education for undergraduate and graduate students, trainees, professionals, employees and the public.
