Dental Technician

Diploma 97 weeks

With hundreds of dental labs in B.C. and many jobs in the Vancouver area, dental technicians are in demand.
The Dental Technician diploma program at CDI College provides students with the training needed to enter this fascinating field and eventually gain provincial certification.

Through a series of lectures, group activities, and hands-on projects, students will gain a fundamental understanding of conventional dental technician practice. They will also learn about computer-aided design and manufacturing of dental ceramics, dental implants, attachments and milling techniques.

Students enrolled in the Dental Technician program will also participate in practicum placements where they will have the opportunity to work in a dental laboratory under the guidance of professional dental technicians.

This program has been approved by the registrar of the Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB) of the Ministry of Advanced Education and Skills Training.

CDI College is one of only five training programs in Canada recognized by the College of Dental Technicians of British Columbia.  After completing the program, graduates are eligible to sit the College of Dental Technician’s Licensing Examination. Regulated under the Health Professions Act, Dental Technicians must be registered with their regulatory college and may use the reserved title of Dental Technician (DT), Registered Dental Technician (RDT), or Certified Dental Technician (CDT).
