Deborah Basset | Certified SEMCD Instructor

Deborah Bassett

Born and schooled in Christchurch, NZ, I started my journey in the dental trade 28 years ago as a Dental assistant before moving to Cardiff to attend University of Wales and graduated as a Dental technician. I worked as a crown and bridge technician in Cardiff for 3 years while attending university before travelling back to NZ to continue as a Dental technician with a crown and bridge laboratory in Christchurch.

I am fortunate to have worked with a highly skilled team at Duchenne Dental doing removable prosthetics for 10 years now and have regularly attended premium denture courses in BPS over the pass years and lucky to have had the opportunity to complete the SEMCD technical course in Japan.
