Theory and Practice Track
The Theory and Practice Track addresses state of the art technologies in the dental industry. The role of the dental technologist as a member of the dental health team is changing. The science and technology of dental laboratory dentistry are in constant change. Dentists have become more dependent on the dental laboratory for advice concerning patient treatment planning. In addition to changes in science and technology, dentists and laboratories are placing a great deal more emphasis on business management.
The Bachelor Degree Program’s primary focus is on dental laboratory leadership, technical and research skills. Completion of this program requires 120 semester hours. These hours must be a combination of general education, dental technology, and laboratory management courses. Non-traditional applicants are reviewed and given consideration on a case by case basis. During the final semester, students may complete an internship under supervision in a commercial or government dental laboratory. Graduates will receive a Bachelor Degree in Dental Laboratory Sciences.
