It is important to establish a routine technique for provisionals, so you can determine how long to make appointments.  To achieve the desired results in provisional therapy, the dentist must allot adequate time to fabricate the interim restoration.  You should allow adequate time to prepare the teeth and make a final impression.

A properly trained assistant can take over the role of fabricating and cementing the provisional restoration.  Appointment times must be altered to accommodate these changes in staff and roles.  The dentist/assistant time with the patient must be shortened and assistant-only time be lengthened.  This time will include time for final cementation and clean up after fabrication of provisional.

Once a routine has been established, a designated amount of time should be allotted for each unit of the provisional.  During this time, utilizing an assistant, the dentist can be performing another procedure, making full use of his/her talents.
