About Our Dental Laboratory Technician Program

Dental laboratory technicians belong to a career field unlike any other. The work relies heavily on technology and artistry, but unlike graphic design or game development, it is also tactile, requiring more dexterity. It is one of the most unique career fields in the healthcare sector.

Our dental laboratory technician diploma program in Utah prepares students to create precisely fabricated crowns and bridges and use a variety of materials to closely resemble natural dentition.
