    Hey all,
    I'm interning at a dental lab and I'm wondering what I should try and learn while I'm there. I've learned how to make and prep models, and right now I'm working on waxing teeth. I've got about 1 more month until I leave for school (I only go to the lab about 10 hrs a week though). Any advice on what to spend my time on?

    You'll do well if you concentrate on waxing crowns and/or setting denture teeth. Wax-ups are one of the first things you'll have to do in dental school lab, and setting denture teeth properly gives some people fits.
