Owner: Mike Robertson, CDT
At Robertson Dental Lab, aspiring CDTs don’t need to take the journey alone. Eight months ago, inspired by technician Karlena Schutz, General Manager Tom Love created a CDT Study Club that meets once a week after the lab closes to help the eight technician-members learn from one another. The lab provides the study materials—including a visual dictionary from PTC and chapters from the Air Force manual—and each week the members take turns choosing a topic, leading the discussion and quizzing others on their grasp of the information. “Once the technicians took ownership of the club, they became vested and it really came to life,” says Love, who is also a member of the club and plans to take the CDT exam in June with the rest of the group. “As a result, we’ve cultivated a very supportive environment where we’re all challenging each other and supporting each other’s goal.”
