Objective to provide a descriptive review on dental technicians as a profession and their distribution in Indonesia based on a literature review. Peer-reviewed articles were collected from PubMed and Google Scholar (year 2016 onwards), and Indonesian-based grey literature, such as the Indonesian law on dental technician, documents from the ministry of health, national data on health, and news media report were used. Dental technicians are competent to work in dental laboratories and health facilities within the scope of manufacturing both fixed and removable dental prosthetics, orthodontic appliances, and maxillofacial prosthetics in collaboration with dentists or dental specialists. Only 13 out of 100 Indonesian public health centres have their own dental technicians. The main task of a dental technician is to plan, manufacture, and evaluate dental prostheses, such as full and partial dentures, fixed dentures, as well as to produce removable orthodontic appliances and maxillofacial prostheses. There is a maldistribution of dental technicians in Indonesia. © 2022, Journal of International Dental and Medical Research. All Rights Reserved.
