Dental Technician

Dental technician


Dental services are the most common ambulatory-clinical activities which are constantly being updating and improving. In dental practice, the work of the dental technician plays an important part. The dental technician is the specialist who works on his own, following the directions and recommendations of the dentist. In some cases, the dental technician participates together with the dentist in planning dental prosthetic structures. The tasks of the dental technician are determined by the variety of the prosthetic structures and apparatuses made.

During their studies dental technician students acquire versatile theoretical and practical training in their specialty and are well-prepared to perform all practical tasks and activities both in the dental laboratory and as heads of dental technician medical laboratories.

The direct contacts of the department with leading companies in the field of dental practice, such as Ivoclar, Astenau /Crup/, Schulerdental, Seca, etc. provide an opportunity for the prompt inclusion of the latest achievements in the world dental science in the curriculum of this specialty.

The training of the students is conducted by highly-qualified teachers who have done courses and participated in workshops and seminars organized by the above-mentioned companies.
