Department of Dental Laboratory Sciences
Message from the Chair
Thank you for visiting UT Health Science Center's Dental Laboratory Sciences website. As a department in the School of Health Professions, we are committed to providing excellent dental science education programs. New and emerging technologies have made Dental Laboratory Science an extremely exciting and challenging profession, resulting in increased demands and a greater position of value for the dental technologist as a member of the dental health care team.
The Department of Dental Laboratory Sciences is recognized as the leader in a growing number of advanced dental laboratory science educational programs. Our Bachelors Degree Program offers four tracks including Theory and Practice, Laboratory Operations, Advanced Technology Applications, and Pre-Dental. For the non-degree seeker we offer an Advanced Certificate Programs (See Harvard). We offer a flexible curriculum that is user-friendly design to meet the needs of the practicing technologist whose responsibilities may limit him/her to a specific graphic location.
Included in our Bachelor’s Degree Program are four tracks:
- Track one provides an opportunity for technician up grades his/her formal credentials by earning the remaining credits necessary to be awarded a Bachelors Degree.
- Track two is designed to accommodate the technician and or computer specialist who wishes to specialize in CAD Cam and areas of digital driven dental technology.
- Track three is designed for science major who is interested in dental research.
- Track four is our very popular new Bachelors Degree in Pre Dental. This program targets those who are preparing themselves for admission to dental school. The goals of this program are as follows: 1) enhance the credential of the dental school applicant; 2) enhance the dental student knowledge and skills in the clinic/laboratory phases of the dental education; and most importantly provide the some valuable insights into how to build and maintain a very successful relationship with their laboratory.
Our Department offers a Bachelor Degree Program in Dental Laboratory Sciences with four tracks. Our flagship track is the Pre-Dental Track, which concentrates on knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to better prepare students for the dental school application process.
For more detailed information on any of these programs please feel free to contact Ms. Pamela Lenow, B.A., Administrative Assistant, at 210-567-3056 or email@example.com
