Dental Technology

Welcome to Dental Technology

Dental technology is one of the most popular and lucrative areas of dentistry where dental technicians design and construct dental appliances to improve people’s teeth. With the increasing patient demand, the need for educated and skilled dental technicians has never been greater.

By studying one of our General Dental Council (GDC) approved dental technology degrees at our £4.8 million Centre for Dental Sciences at the University of Bolton, you will have the competitive edge required to excel in this field. Our programmes lead to professional registration as a Dental Care Professional.

"I'm a first-year student studying BSc (Hons) Dental Technology. I have recently begun my placement on the course, so I'm experiencing the live environment of a laboratory. The opportunity to ask my mentor questions during my placement has been really beneficial. The teaching staff are supportive and approachable if any student needs them. I feel that this course is perfect for me as there is a great blend of academic and placement work. It has put me in a strong position to utilise the skills that I have learnt for my future career."

"I am writing to you to thank you for selecting such a fine young student. Wojciech Laska has been coming to my laboratory for the last two years. He has always been polite and well-mannered as well as hard-working and conscientious. He is a credit to the Centre for Dental Sciences and the time you have spent with him will stand him in good stead for his future career. As you know the dental industry is very close-knit and reputation is paramount both with quality of work and personality. Wojciech has shown to have both these qualities. I know he has been selected to go to Zirkonzhan in Italy, I would like to contribute £200 towards his travel expenses."
