Dental Laboratory Technology



Back in 1887, a Boston dentist began creating dental appliances for other dentists, establishing the first successful commercial dental lab. Soon after, he began training apprentices and the dental laboratory technician was born.

As a dental laboratory technology student, you’ll learn all the technical skills necessary to work with molds, metals, and other materials to create customized fixtures for the perfect fit. Though you may never see the patients who wear your creations, they'll be grinning ear to ear thanks to your efforts.
