The Denturist profession was born in the United States in 1978 when Oregon voters passed a ballot measure to create the profession. Currently, there are six states in which Denturists are practicing with licenses. According to the National Denturist Association, there are several states that are evaluating the profession, but are looking for an educational institution to deliver fulfillment of the baseline competencies required to practice this profession prior to granting licensure. Denturist practice around the world under a variety of names, including Clinical Dental Technician, and Dental Prosthetist, among others.
