Welcome to the Department of Restorative Dentistry. We provide a comprehensive program leading to an Associate in Applied Science degree in Dental Laboratory Technology. It is an exciting time to start a career in dental technology, with recent advancements in materials and techniques the demand for educated dental technicians has never been higher.
The field of dental technology provides a fulfilling and rewarding career. The Dental Technologist works in conjunction with other members of the dental health care team to improve the life and well being of the dental patient. “We Make Smiles.”
Dental technology is the art and science of fabricating dental prosthesis and appliances for the dental patient. Some of the skills needed to be successful in the field are an artistic ability, attention to details, and good hand eye coordination. The faculty members of the restorative dentistry department are devoted to developing the education and skills needed for each student to be successful dental technicians. If you enjoy working with your hands and have an artistic ability you may consider pursuing a career as a dental technician. We encourage you to look into the career of dental technology, talk to your dentist or other dental professionals, make an appointment to come to the department for a tour of the program, and see our classes in action.
We look forward to seeing you!
