Dental Laboratory Technology

Dental laboratory technicians possess the skills, competencies and knowledge that is invaluable to the practice of modern dentistry. Through the unique Dental Laboratory Technology Program situated at the well equipped laboratories at the SUNY Erie South Campus, students are instructed in all aspects of dental laboratory technology. Opportunities are available for second-year students to work with doctors in private practice, at hospitals and at commercial dental laboratories as they prepare to join the profession and the oral health team.

The goal of the Dental Laboratory Technology Program is to train students to be capable of the design, fabrication and production of dental prostheses, including full and partial dentures, crowns, bridges and orthodontic appliances. New state-of-the-art techniques, equipment and materials are emphasized, i.e. implantology, cosmetic dentistry and CAD/CAM technology.

The curriculum, offered on a full-time basis during the day, highlights coursework in anatomy, physiology, occlusion, biomedical materials, dental metallurgy, dental prostheses, ceramics technology and computer assisted design. Classroom learning is supplemented with laboratory experiences in our well equipped laboratories at the college, as well as at local hospitals and commercial laboratories.
