Lee Butler, the newest member to our Woodborough House team, joined in January 2013. Lee is a clinical technician who is qualified to make and fit dentures. He provides a one-to-one treatment plan and helps you find comfort and get a natural appearance from wearing dentures.
Lee works as part of the Changing Faces Group and has many years of experience with skills that are recognized at a national level, and has been highly commended at prestigious dental awards.
He has a special interest in ‘teeth in a day’, hoping to provide either dentures or fixed bridge work by aid of dental implants. He has begun to work together with Nick to find the best solution for the patients.
Lee has now settled in and has his brand new Lab up and running.
He has been seeing patients for consultations, and one of the benefits of having a lab onsite is that he is able to show patients some of the materials used. This is great, as it really increases their understanding of the procedures, which in turn helps to make those more nervous individuals feel relatively at ease!
I have been working with Lee during his time at Woodborough House so far, and he has been fitting in well! Patients are finding him great to talk to and it’s always nice to come and see someone for you dentures and know they will be made by the same hand. As stated above Lee has a special interest in teeth in a day using denture retaining implants – this is great as they are fixed down and do not move around like some dentures can in the mouth especially when eating and drinking.
It is great working with Lee, as you can give someone a better quality of life when they are fitted with correctly fitting dentures; they can smile again and eat more food, which is something I enjoy doing a lot myself ;D! And to not have to worry that your teeth may fall out mid-conversation, or mid-meal, is a blessing many of us take entirely for granted, but make a world of difference to others’ confidence. The dentures that Lee makes also look very natural – you wouldn’t even know they were dentures, to look at them!
It is great to have yet another very skilled person working onsite; it is a real pleasure to be part of such a great team, especially as I am still only training. Gaining experience every day and working with different people throughout the practice is a great way of learning.
