Tematyka protez elastycznych, termoplastycznych, oraz ich zastosowanie kliniczne i laboratoryjne jest mi szczególnie bliska.

A digital 3D setup image of the dentition is created using computer-aided design and manufacturing (CAD/CAM) technology. A good example of using CAD/CAM technology for the diagnosis, treatment ...

Krakowska Medyczna Szkoła Policealna

Dzisiaj po raz kolejny odwiedziłam Krakowską Medyczną Szkolę Policealną. Jest ona uznawana za jedną z najlepszych tego typu placówek w Polsce. Kształci między innymi techników dentystycznych w kierunku protetyki stomatologicznej, ortodoncji oraz kwalifikowany średni personel stomatologiczny profilu zabiegowego, profilaktyczno-oświatowego i instruktorsko-administracyjnego. Bardzo miło mi było spotkać znajome twarze, ludzi, z którymi pracowałam w tej szkole ponad jedenaście lat i jeszcze milej ujrzeć moich dawnych uczniów w rolach nauczycieli. Dziękuje wszystkim za zaproszenie i miłe przyjęcie.
