What is dental technology?
The duties of a dental technician are comprehensive and varied. Dental technicians work with a variety of materials which include waxes, plastics, precious and non-precious alloys and porcelain. Dental technicians also use sophisticated instruments and equipment while performing laboratory procedures to fabricate:
- Full Dentures
- Removable Partial Dentures
- Fixed Crowns and Bridges
- Ceramic Restorations
- Orthodontic Appliances
The dental technology program at IU Fort Wayne offers a four-year baccalaureate degree. The program has maintained full accreditation by the American Dental Association's Commission on Dental Accreditation since its beginning in 1972.
Upon successful completion of the program, students will be awarded a Bachelor of Science degree from Indiana University.
