Staff Sgt. Mark Hughes, 47th Medical Group Dental Clinic lab technician, points to the porcelain cube which can be carved into a prosthetic crown by the computer-aided design & computer-aided manufacturing machine Feb. 25, 2019, at Laughlin Air Force Base, Texas. Hughes has the equipment and ability to make prosthetic crowns, custom ear pieces, sleep guards, sports guards, and they can make a mold of a person’s face to enable personally fitted masks when the generic mask won’t fit.
