Treasure Dental Lab has chosen to be a Certified Dental Lab since 1995. 2 The Certified Dental Laboratory (CDL) Program provides assurance that a laboratory has met specific standards relating to quality assurance, safety, and business and manufacturing practices. By earning and maintaining the CDL designation, our dental laboratory is always monitoring and attempting to improve the quality and efficiency of our services and facilities. The NBC certifies all CDL’s
Achieving and maintaining certification offers our lab a nationally-recognized credential attesting to compliance with competency standards that are widely accepted by dentistry and dental technology. This can be invaluable in establishing credibility with outside third parties, including courts of law, insurance companies and government.
We employ Certified Dental Technicians (CDTs) who possess significant mastery of the knowledge and applied skills needed in dental technology and work in the proper conditions. We promote transparency in every aspect of the restoration process, and we strive to deliver high-quality products that you can trust.
We are proud to employ 9 CDT’s here at Treasure Dental Lab. 3 The Certified Dental Technician (CDT) designation is a great achievement and demonstrates a significant mastery of the knowledge and applied skills needed in dental technology. The National Board for Certification in Dental Laboratory Technology (NBC) certifies all CDTs. All dental technicians who possess the required education and/or experience, have a working knowledge of the English language and have not been found guilty of practicing dentistry illegally are eligible to become Certified Dental Technicians.
A Certified Dental Technician, or CDT, must undergo a series of evaluations and pass three tests within a four year period. Once a CDT passes all tests, he or she must complete 12 hours of continuing education every year to keep skills up-to-date and to retain certification status.
