What’s on My Bench? With Josh Polansky, Master Dental Technician


I’m going to take you on a tour of my bench and describe my favorite, tried-and-true products that I use daily.  To give you a little background about myself, I started working part-time at a dental laboratory and apprenticed under master technician, Olivier Tric of Oral Design Chicago.  Mr. Tric opened my eyes to a whole new world of possibilities and inspired me to become a master dental technician.

I continued to acquire technical skills while studying in Europe with experts and mentors in the field like Klaus Mutertheis.  I went on to earn a master’s degree in Dental Ceramics at UCLA Center for Esthetic Dentistry.  I continued my training at UCLA’s Advanced Prosthodontics and Maxillofacial program.  For the last 10 years I’ve owned Niche Dental Lab Studio.

Below I’m going to describe the tools I’ve been using for years. I wouldn’t know what to do without them!
