Hey fellow CDT study groupies! If you haven't bought any of the resources available through NADL, I found some useful info on the world-wide web. Here are some links for some tooth anatomy and denture...See more info, enjoy!
Hey CDT study members! I purchased the online study guide through NADL and I'm currently making cue cards to study answers and cram everything in my brain. This guide has a lot of good questions to know...See more what to expect. Also, I purchased the examination preparation CD and it has a lot info regarding what is in the different exams including what you will be doing for your practical exam. These both help. Let me know how everyone else is studying and if anyone has some questions about my materials. Happy studying!

I agree with Melissa, the water ratio maybe too high. Dental die stone won't crumble unless the mixing ratio is way off, mixing procedure is not correct, or the stone is not being properly stored. I...See more would also check how long the stone sets.When I did models long ago I poured them the night before and in the morning I would have great detail and strong first pours to work with.
