“Gain knowledge and experience which you’ll use immediately in your dental career.”

Dental technicians work as part of a dental team, and make and fit specialist materials to improve people’s teeth. Employment prospects for skilled Dental Technology graduates are excellent. 20% of dental care is currently performed by dental care professionals, but this is expected to rise to 50% by 2025, according to the Centre for Workforce Intelligence.

The University of Bolton has developed the Centre for Dental Sciences to meet the need for more registered dental technicians. You’ll learn in the state-of-the-art Queen’s Specialist Building, which has purpose-built dental laboratories, dental processing rooms and a commercially sponsored digital dental laboratory. It’s an exciting and invigorating place to learn, and you’ll gain knowledge and experience which you’ll use immediately in your dental career.
