The Dental Laboratory Technician program at Ameritech College of Healthcare stresses the importance of producing a high quality product and at a high quantity of work, both of which are necessary to become gainfully employed as a Dental Laboratory Technician.

Graduates of the program are prepared for the crown and bridge and ceramics portion of the Recognized Graduate (RG) test offered by the National Board for Certification (NBC) of the National Association of Dental Laboratories. After three years of on-the-job experience, the RG may sit for a specialty written exam and take the NBC practical exam. A passing grade on these two exams earns RGs the Certified Dental Technician (CDT) credential.

Entry Requirements

A prospective student who does not pass the dexterity and aptitude exam may retake the exam after 30 days; however, the test may only be taken twice per semester.

About Ameritech College of Healthcare, United States

Ameritech College of Healthcare was founded in 1979 in Provo Utah.  As an accredited vocational college specializing in healthcare career training, the original vision was to provide students with career advancement into the healthcare field in the shortest time possible.  As jobs in healthcare continue to grow, Ameritech is preparing graduates to meet this demand.

While Ameritech College of Healthcare has grown substantially since 1979, the college has remained true to its mission.  Over the past several decades, thousands of graduates have chosen Ameritech to assist them with their career transition into a variety of healthcare and dental related fields.

In 2006 Ameritech expanded its allied health and dental offerings by adding a registered nursing program. Nursing students from inside and outside the State of Utah began to see the value of the Ameritech’s Nursing Program, and the number of graduated registered nurses now numbers in the thousands. Ameritech College of Healthcare has since grown to be one of the largest and highest-performing nursing colleges in Utah.

Past graduates have come to Ameritech from across the United States and even internationally.  With the expansion into online healthcare programs in 2009, Ameritech College of Healthcare now offers an advanced degree option for registered nurses who wish to pursue their Bachelor of Science in Nursing online.

Ameritech College of Healthcare implements its mission guided by five dynamic and integrated core values that are embedded into the institution, dictate behavior, and are reflected in our work.
