Staff Sgt. Anthony Brown, 15th Operational Medical Readiness Squadron dental lab technician, fills an impression with a material called “stone” to create a mold of the patients teeth in the dental lab at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii, April 2022. Dental technicians take impressions of the patient’s mouth to design and 3D print crowns, retainers, night guards and other forms of dental gear.
