CDI College Adds Dental Technician Program to Surrey Campus

Dental Technician

Students can get trained and quickly find great careers in positions in commercial laboratories.

Last week, CDI College announced that they became only the second college to offer an approved dental tech program, with only 5 others available across Canada.

“CDI College’s Dental Technician program will provide its students with everything they need, from state-of-the-art labs to the well-qualified professors that bring their own success and personal hands-on experience to the classroom,” said Joseph Wallace, R.D.T, Program Head for Dental Technology at CDI College.

Students can get trained and quickly find great careers in positions in commercial laboratories based on their technical or communication skills, become department heads in larger laboratories where they would have supervisory responsibilities. They might also potentially own their own laboratory.

Wallace added that it’s important for CDI College “to be able to offer the program to more students in the community, and in the country as a whole.”

Graduates of the program will be eligible to write the licensure exams required to practice with the College of Dental Technicians of British Columbia. The program will also incorporated a longer practicum time and the latest technology, such as CAD/CAM (Computer Aided Design/Computer Aided Manufacturing) in CDI College’s new curriculum.
