Alison Pretious FBIDST
I started my passion for dental technology in 1980, A & A Pretious was launched in 1982. In 2005 I advanced my qualifications with a HNC in dental technology followed by obtaining Fellow status with the British Institute of Dental and Surgical Technologists. I have taught dental technology to students from all over the world at the Lambeth College, School of Science and Dental Technology London. In recent years I have travelled to the USA and Europe to keep astride of all the latest technology and advances in the world of Dental Technology. I am proud to say that I still have a “Passion” for each and every job that I create.
I began my career with A & A Pretious in 1985 and qualified as a dental technician in 1990. Since then I have had training in various aspects of the trade in Europe and the United States. In 2007 I joined Alison as a partner in the business. I am fascinated and motivated by the constant advancements and innovations in Dental Technology.
I started at A & A Pretious in 1998 as an apprentice. In 2005 I qualified as a Dental Technician and registered with the D.T.A, then the GDC in 2008. I enjoy working with a group of like-minded, enthusiastic people.
I have been in the dental trade since 1983 when I was employed as a dental nurse & progressed to a dental laboratory assistant in 2002. I enjoy the challenge & creativity and I really enjoy being part of a small team that gel and work well together.
A & A Pretious Dental Laboratory started as a husband and wife partnership, in 1982 and specialises in crown & bridge work. Alison & Alan Pretious, (the partners), first started as a very small lab, with only themselves undertaking the various laboratory tasks. Over the last twenty five years it has grown into a thriving laboratory, and in May 2007 saw the introduction of new partner Richard Church. The technicians are General Dental Council registered.
