    I have recently started working. When I was in a dental school we had to survey the cast and design on our own. The question to all working dentist is do you still design RPD by yourself or your lab does it for you? Thank you.
    And I am talking about Cast Partial Denture here.

    You should always design your own RPD

    I mean, it's usually self explanatory. Lab tech sees rest seat>fabricate rest. I've never broken out colored pencils or anything.

    My routine: drill rest seats next to edentulous site(s)>alg imp> "fabricate cast f/w for max rpd and return for f/w try-in"
