Certified Dental Technician

CDT logoThe CDT designation is a great achievement and demonstrates a significant mastery of the knowledge and applied skills needed in dental technology. Individuals achieving this designation have demonstrated a competency not all of their peers will achieve. Additionally, there exists an RG designation which illustrates a recent graduate's commitment to the field of dental technology and demonstrates their knowledge in all five specialty areas while they earn the experience necessary to become a CDT. The pride of earning a CDT or RG is personally rewarding and the CDT designation places the recipient among the group of individuals who are at the top of the dental technology profession.

Although certification is costly and requires a sustained commitment, it has many benefits for dental technicians, laboratory owners and the dental customer. CDTs and RGs have not only demonstrated competency, but they have shown determination and commitment in completing the certification process. The attained skill and knowledge of the CDT is highly desirable to laboratories. This value is affirmed by statistics that show almost two-thirds of CDTs have held their certificate more than 10 years. Today's CDTs are dedicated individuals who believe strongly in improving themselves and their profession.

The extensive knowledge gained by the CDT and RG during the required continuing education process assures the laboratory owner, dental customer and the public that this individual is a true student of the profession with a solid commitment to remain at the cutting edge of his or her field. We, at Global Dental Solutions support the CDT program and hire technicians with the CDT designation.
