OK. I have another topic to explore. I hope I don't open up a can of worms along the way.
I think there is something else that can be done help the dental lab industry. This is to address the dental lab techs. Again, maybe it is already being done...but I am not aware of it.
I am not for more laws and regulations...I think there is much that can be done before taking that route.
I think the bar for becoming a CDT needs to be raised. As Mark mentioned before, what was the standard before is now old...and new standards need to be raised.
Question: Is a CDT better than a Non-CDT tech? LMT...maybe this could be a topic for you to write about.
Maybe there should be new requirements...like doing an internship with a dentist...or like understanding x-rays...or like having an internship working in a production lab as well as in high-end type of lab...maybe internship or even writing a paper on a dental manufacturing company...so they can expand their minds more....all before the CDT is granted. Do you think these CDTs might be a little different?
Other bullet items could be included.
Any NADL people here?
(sigh...about to hit the "Share button" Here it goes.)
