What Is a Denturist?
Denturists are highly trained and licensed professionals who are experts in the fitting and construction of dentures. Your denturists at Shreve Denture Clinic, Kristin Shreve Swayze DD and Claudia Szynal DD, have been extensively trained in the practice of denturism. Not only do denturists manufacture dentures, but they also perform maintenance and service on your dentures, including repairs and relines.
Kristin Shreve Swayze DD and Claudia Szynal DD both graduated from an accredited denturism program. The goal of a denturist is to provide attractive, comfortable dentures to their patients. Shreve Denture Clinic has an on-site lab which allows for efficient and often same-day relines and repairs. It also allows for shorter waiting time to construct new dentures. You do not need a referral from a dentist to see Kristin Shreve Swayze DD or Claudia Szynal DD although our office works very closely with many dentists providing a comprehensive treatment plan for all our patients.
At our denture clinic, we have an experienced team at your service. We will work with you to cater to all your denture needs efficiently. Go through to learn more about our team.
