June is CDT and Dental Technician Appreciation Month. There is no better way to celebrate than talking to a couple of people who have volunteered their time to help promote, educate, and strengthen our industry.
First up is Dennis Urban CDT from Dental Services Group who is also the Chairperson on the National Board of Certification (NBC). Dennis talks about getting his CDT, finding the motivation to get on the board to promote it, and what the NBC is doing to make sure technicians still have the opportunity to get certified during these difficult times.
Then we talk to Sean Siegel from Castable Ceramics (also the Chairperson of the Foundation of Dental Laboratory Technology) and Shawn Nowak from Nowak Dental Supplies (also the Fiscal Officer of the Foundation). They give us an update on the Foundation, all the grants and scholarships that are available, and how the Foundation plans on being stronger than ever once we get back to normal.
