Is there anyone out there in Belize that feels that a denturist (a professional that works directly with patients and fits and fabricates dentures) would be able to set up a practice in Belize and actually make a living?

What do people do now if they need a denture?

There are several excellent dentists in Belize who make dentures. Not alot but several. And the pay is much lower than US costs.

We use small river stones that we glue on with the sap from the sapodilla tree (chicle).

I guess they're expensive. I came across a SP resident sweeping the street searching for a lost false tooth. Went to borrow a metal detector (there was a metal pin in it). How'd it go, John?

Peter, the metal detector did not work waiting for Marty to come home. Will try again.

I have been told BZ400.00 for a new one.

Inplub, I've know you form 44 years and didn't know you had a false tooth.
