    Located at the Women's Huron Valley Correctional Facility, the MSI Dental Laboratory provides all dentures, bite splints and dental appliance repairs for MDOC prisoners.  Workers gain experience as dental lab technicians as well as dental appliance makers.  The Dental Lab training involves teaching the various techniques and systems used in creating well-fitting dental prosthetics and demands dexterity, numeracy, focus on detail and commitment on the part of the students.  The Dental Laboratory employs ten prisoner workers.
