Advanced Removable Dental Laboratory Technology
The Dental Advanced Removable Laboratory Technician program is a consolidated program with two military services that is designed to provide advanced formal education and training in the dental laboratory sciences.
Students are trained in the major disciplines of: fabrication of a removable partial denture (RPD), implant-supported denture, both active and passive orthodontic appliances and specialized removable prostheses to include a sleep apnea device and ear piece.
Performance-based training is conducted for all aspects of training as this program deals in the fabrication of dental appliances. Students mix dental materials, maintain dental equipment, and perform advanced dental appliance creation procedures. The instructional design of this program’s courses is group lockstep.
Methods of instruction include, but are not limited to: lecture, demonstration, online materials, simulations, laboratory practice, and practical exercises. Quality control and safety techniques are emphasized throughout the program.
