    Hi,

    I had a brief question for those who know anything about Meharry dental school. Do they require you to do your own lab work or do they send it off to a dental lab to do it for you?
    I am applying for dental school this year and I was just curious cuz I can't find it any where in their site, plz let me know...thanks

    Yes, there is some lab work you will have to do. In removable, you will be fabricating your own custom tray and border molding and pouring up the final impression. You will also fabricate the occlusal rims and set the teeth and festoon. In fixed you will make the final impression with a custom tray (as opposed to a triple tray or quadrant tray), but you will send that off to the lab. In rare occasions the instructor may have you to pour up the final impression in Die Keen. If you have to make a cast post and core you will be casting it yourself.
