technicians hold about 46,000 jobs in the United States. About 55 percent
of salaried jobs were in medical equipment and supply manufacturing
laboratories, which usually are small, privately owned businesses with
fewer than 5 employees. However, some laboratories are large; a few employ
more than 1,000 workers.
In addition to manufacturing laboratories, many dental
laboratory technicians worked in offices of dentists. Some dental
laboratory technicians open their own offices.
