Foundation for Dental Technology gains $50,000 donation

The IdentAlloy/IdentCeram Council and the National Association for Dental Laboratories have committed to a five-year support program for the Foundation for Dental Technology.

Between 2010-2014, the council will donate $50,000 to the FDT’s work.

“The NADL and the foundation are grateful to the IdentAlloy/IdentCeram Council and its supporting organization for joining us in our work to provide education for future dental technicians,” said Ricki Braswell, FDT executive director. “Their generous support will go a long way toward funding grants that are being developed to assist formal dental laboratory technology schools.”

The purpose of the foundation is to advance the profession of dental laboratory technology by developing educational curriculum and programs that will be relevant and accessible to dental technicians and other members of the dental team.

The IdentAlloy/IdentCeram Council is a nonprofit organization formed to raise health care standards through the documentation of alloys and ceramic materials used in dental restorations. According to its website, the council’s efforts also help in a variety of information requirements, such as billing, insurance verification and legal documentation.
