Advanced Technology Applications Track
The Advanced Technology Applications Track focuses on the science and technology of dentistry. Recent innovations in clinical and laboratory dentistry involve the application of CAD/CAM, laser, digital imagining, robotic, and computer technology and science. Emerging needs in the clinic and laboratory require scientists and technologists with backgrounds that can be applied to these innovations.
The Bachelor Degree Program’s primary focus is on dental laboratory leadership, technical and research skills. Completion of this program requires 120 semester hours. These hours must be a combination of general education, dental technology, and laboratory management courses. Non traditional applicants are reviewed and given consideration on a case by case situation. During the final semester, students may complete an internship under supervision in a commercial or government dental laboratory. Graduates will receive a Bachelor Degree in Dental Laboratory Sciences.
