This article presents a brief review of the literature concerning the curriculum deemphasis for removable prosthodontics, especially on the subject of complete dentures. The authors surveyed commercial dental laboratories specializing in removable dental prosthetics in three major Texas cities to determine whether dentists were submitting adequate records and information with their complete denture work authorizations. Results indicate that dentists are requesting services from their laboratories without providing adequate records.
